Pia Toscano, the glamorous girl from Long Island who was shockingly voted off of American Idol after being an early favorite to win, is back in the spotlight. The singer, who has scored a record deal with Interscope Records according to The Hollywood Reporter, debuted the first single from her upcoming album Monday on American Idol host Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
Pia Toscano fans are in for some good news. The American Idol contestant, who finished ninth in the competition, signed a deal with Jimmy Iovine's Interscope Records and will release her debut single, "This Time," next Tuesday, July 12.
It's safe to say the judges were not happy with America's decision on Thursday night, as Pia Toscano was surprisingly eliminated from American Idol. Despite giving some of the most consistent performances this season, the presumed frontrunner wound up in the bottom with Stefano Langone, before Ryan Seacrest informed her she had received the fewest number of votes from fans at home.
Pia Toscano is looking more and more like the contestant to beat this season on American Idol. During Wednesday night's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame themed show, Toscano broke away from ballads and chose Tina Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High," which was the standout number of the night.
Things are getting increasingly intense for the contestants of American Idol as the show continues its elimination rounds. The Top 13 who made it past last week's eliminations sang their hearts out on Wednesday night's show, choosing songs from their own personal idols.
After sizzling performances from the boys of American Idol on Tuesday night, Wednesday night's female renditions seemed a little lukewarm. Scotty McCreery and Jacob Lusk hit the top of DialIdol.com, the website that predicts the show's winners from phone call volume.
