Just like Scotty McCreery sings country songs every time, Pia Toscano is sticking with her ballads for all of her American Idol performances. Even though the judges asked Pia not to sing another ballad this time, they didn’t get mad when she sang one during Elton John night last night and still gave her top praises!
Pia took the stage and sang Elton’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” and actually walked a little more during last night’s performance compared to her past songs.
“Pia, you’ve done it again,” Steven Tyler told Pia. “I just want to say this just goes to prove that some people might have been wrong up here when we asked you not to sing ballads anymore.”
“I felt you more than I have before and I like that. I feel you trying to break the barrier,” Jennifer Lopez said. “The next time you’re going to pick up your leg and you’re going to stomp it on the floor and that’s what I’m waiting for.”
“You’ve sung a ballad every time and guess what, you’ve slayed them every time. I think I said that every time you’ve sang them so it was never that,” Randy Jackson explained. “I was just trying to get you to switch your gears a little bit.”
“The world knows and everybody here knows you can sing.”
Do you agree?
