American Idol Elimination: A Shocking Result

at . Comments

American Idol bid farewell to a performer many felt would go all the way here in Season 10, and who some believed turned in the best performance the night before.

It was the second wild American Idol results show in three weeks, and the judges may be scratching their heads, wishing they had that save back right about now.

No offense to Casey Abrams, but come on.

Most pundits felt that the Bottom Three would be made of Paul McDonald, Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone. That would have been two-thirds correct, but ...

Pia Toscano on American Idol

Pia Toscano joined Jacob and Stefano on the block, and she's the one who ended up leaving! The judges were understandably shocked, but the votes don't lie.

"What a shock, what a surprise," Ryan Seacrest said, while Jennifer Lopez could not hold back the tears. "I have no idea what just happened here," she said.

"I'm shocked. I'm angry. I don't even know what to say."

"We're all in shock," said Randy Jackson. "I'm gutted."

Are you? Did the voters make as bad a call as the judges think? Or was Pia not as great as she's cracked up to be by some? Who's the favorite to win now?

The thing with Pia is I think the public didn't connect with her. Her voice might be one of the strongest ever on Idol, but come on, when she sings a ballad, the girl has ZERO personnality, barely any emotion. It just sucks that she has to leave after, IMO, her best performance so far (River deep, mountain high). She finally showed some personnality, some fun, and they kick her out? *smh*
