I bet the American Idol judges wished they had one more wild card to use this week. In a shocking turn of events, it was American Idol 2011 favorite Pia Toscano who was eliminated tonight.
The news shocked everyone and fans of the show (and fans of Pia) were devastated to learn that she would no longer be competing for the title. Other contestants who made it through this week with relatively no trouble were my personal favorite Lauren Alaina and the formerly-eliminated-but-saved-by-the-wildcard contestant Casey Abrams.
Pia was a fan favorite from the beginning. She was poised and talented but struggled to find a personality that stood out in comparison to some of the other contestants this year.
Do I think Pia should have been the 2011 American Idol? Probably not. Did I think she would last longer than this week? Absolutely.
I’m just as shocked as you guys to find out that Pia will no longer be on the show.
I’m sure there are many of you with strong opinions over tonight’s elimination so feel free to leave your comments about the results show below (try to be nice please)!
Did Pia deserve to be sent home tonight?
