Holy crap! I would have never called this one. Pia Toscano, who seemed as if she was a front runner to win, was eliminated from American Idol on Thursday night, leaving the judges in despair over the audience’s decision. Toscano took it all in with a lot of calm dignity.
“I have no idea what happened here. I’m shocked. I’m angry,” said judge Jennifer Lopez, who had started to cry.
Randy Jackson covered his head and mouthed a repeated “No” after host Ryan Seacrest announced that Toscano she was going home.
Steven Tyler said, “A mistake is one thing, but a lack of passion is unforgivable. Meaning that America didn’t care enough to vote for her, or they assumed that she was going to be safe and didn’t bother to vote.
Toscano found herself in the bottom three with Stefano Langone and Jacob Lusk. When the decision was announced Stefano looked completely floored. Watch the elimination after the jump.
What do you think of last night’s elimination? Who do you think should have gone home? Sound off in the comments.
