It was the first round of performances for the top 12 girls, and the judges already gave out a standing ovation. New York native Pia Toscano wowed everyone with her powerful rendition of "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders.

"Yo, let me just say something right now, this is our first standing O of this new season," judge Randy Jackson exclaimed at the end of her performance. "I have been here 10 seasons, we've had some amazing performances on here, but let me tell you something, you just put yourself in the top with those amazing performances that have gone on to do amazingly good things. That was unbelievable. That's how you do it."
