American Idol season 10 continued Thursday, April 7, with an elimination that shocked the judges and the viewers.
Ryan Seacrest told the crowd at the top of the show that it would be “a very shocking results night,” but most didn’t realize just how shocking it would be.
To everyone’s surprise, Pia Toscano was eliminated last night – a contestant that the judges have given endless praise. Needless to say, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler were stunned and upset by the results.
“I have no idea what just happened here,” said Lopez, who had started to cry.
“You’re one of the best singers,” said Jackson. “This makes me mad.”
“A mistake is one thing,” said Tyler, “but a lack of passion is unforgiveable.”
What are your thoughts on the elimination? If everyone loved Pia so much, how did she not receive enough votes to move on?
American Idol returns next week with the top 8 performing Wednesday, April 13 at 8/7c on FOX.
