“The Daughtry Effect” hit American Idol last night. Everyone seemed to think Pia Toscano would be safe, but the ballad loving singer was sent home. The tears were flowing on stage, but Pia held it together until the very end when she was embraced by her fellow crying contestants.
Still, it may have been Jennifer Lopez who took the elimination the hardest.
“Jennifer, what’s happened here?” Ryan Seacrest asked.
“I have no idea,” she said with tears in her eyes. “I have no idea what just happened here. I’m shocked. I’m angry. I don’t even know what to say.”
“By the way, Ryan. We said it last night. No one is ever safe,” Randy Jackson warned. “If you thought that she was safe look at where she is now — you didn’t vote. You’ve got to vote for whomever you love!”
“I’m never upset on this show and I’m never really mad, but this make me mad,” he added. “It’s like what is going on?”
“I don’t know America, man,” Steven Tyler said. “Mistake is one thing, but lack of passion is unforgivable. They’re wrong. I don’t know what happened with this.”
“She’s beautiful,” he added. “When she sings she’s a bird.”
