One of the Best Leaves Idol

posted by S. Russ

Tonight the number of Idol hopefuls went from nine to eight, and Pia Toscano took the fall.  In the bottom three with her were Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone.  This was expected, after all her performance last night wasn’t all that strong…

Wait, what?

Pia??

Too bad the judges already used their save.  In the second of absolutely insane results, America voted and one of the top vocalists on the show went home.  If you were to ask me why Pia finished last, I have absolutely no reason to give you.  This is the most baffling Idol decision since Jennifer Hudson left the show early.  Pia was the probably most consistent singer this season, always delivering notable performances and pushing herself to be better each week.  We can only hope though that like Jennifer Hudson before her, she will go on to bigger and better things.  Perhaps things where her fate isn’t decided primarily by apparently tone deaf viewers.

With Britney Spears having the number 1 album and Pia Toscano leaving American Idol it is as clear as ever that Americans as a whole have awful taste in music.

what can you say, this result is outrageous. No doubt in my mind she will go farther than the winner of this years show. she’s got the package that you rarely see. Remember, IDOL has not had a sexy track record with their winners. Most of them, you can’t even remember and haven’t done much in music. Several pass finalists (i.e. Daughtry, Hudson, Aiken) have done much better than most of the winners. I can’t even remember the winners of the past 2 years… My sense is that IDOL is becoming less relevant with people who can make good assessments of musical talent. It seems the majority of the voting fan base of IDOL may be < 16 yrs. old. I believe Simon Cowel's new show will kick IDOL's butt, simply on the basis that his show will be relevant…

I will tell you why Pia is leaving American Idol tonight….because all the voters are young teenage girls who feel threatened by a another woman, which is also the reason that for the last 3 seasons of American Idol, good looking men have won who have not produced anything.

Part of the problem is that not a lot of guys care about American Idol enough to vote, and Joe you’re right there aren’t a lot of musicians who care about the show either. It’s a shame, because it seems the actual Idol show is improved this year while the voting is worse.

I think the NBC show The Voice could be an interesting competitor to Idol.

THE CANADIANS ARE NOT VERY HAPPY WITH AMERICA’S VOTING SYSTEM ON AI. WHEN A SHOW IS IN SEARCH OF EXCEPTIONAL TALENT AND SOMEONE RISES TO THE OCCASION AS PIA DID AND THEN GETS THE BOOT; THERE SHOULD BE MORE CONTROL GIVEN TO THE JUDGES TO BE ABLE TO KEEP THE CONTESTANT BASED ON “PROFESSIONAL OPINION”. I AGREE, THIS SONGBIRD WAS VOTED OFF MORE THAN LIKELY BY TEENAGERS VOTING FOR THE ‘BOYS’. THIS VOTING SYSTEM IS NOT A FAIR WAY TO BRING VOICES TO THE MASSES THAT APPEAL TO US BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO PERFORM AND TO KEEP THEM IN THE RUNNING FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS WHICH ARE: THEIR VOCAL PERFORMANCE AND STAGE PRESENCE COMBINED. THIS IS WHAT MOVES US TO BELIEVE IN THE ONES WHO DESERVE A CHANCE TO CONTINUE. THIS IS WHAT MAKES US APPRECIATE MUSIC AS IT REACHES OUR HEARTS AND LIFTS OUR SPIRITS, THIS IS WHAT MAKES US WANT TO SUPPORT THEM, BUY THEIR MUSIC AND FOLLOW THEM THROUGH THEIR CAREER.

I agree Donna! Maybe with a little less enthusiasm though. :)
