Did you sit with bated breath as you waited to see which American Idol contestant would be going home? Did you do an awkward little fist pump that startled your sleeping puppy when you heard it was Pia Toscano? Well, then we had pretty similar nights last night, and I think we should probably be friends on Facebook.
It was really just a matter of time before Pia was sent home – she wasn’t going to win. I say that because I have faith in America, even after it almost sent the glorious Casey Abrams home (love you no matter what, Casey!). At the end of the day, Pia is just a one-trick pony, and while admittedly she has a pretty sweet trick, it’s not enough. Because you know what people like to see onstage? Stage presence. Pia didn’t really have any of that going on, and if I had to watch her stand still and wave her arms around and bore me and my puppy to death for one more week, I was going to lose it.
What do you guys think? Did Pia deserve to go home? Who do you think is going to win now?

So for the first time since, like, the show began, this is the first year that I haven’t watched American Idol with rapt attention. It wasn’t even because, you know, Simon left. I was more busted up about the departure of Paula Abdul a few seasons ago, but when the time came for the Idol premiere earlier in the year, it also went, and I happened to miss it. I then missed it each week thereafter, and up until watching the above clip, I hadn’t seen a second of this season.
However, THIS GIRL CAN WAIL. Pia Toscano? Even though your name sounds like a chick that The Situation would be proud of banging, or worse, a castmember on Jersey Shore, you gained some serious Idol cred last night. I project that this girl, if not the winner, will be in the top three – and I haven’t even seen the other contestants. (Do I need to?)
Are you guys watching? Do you have a favorite? Does this year suck hard?
I guess I may as well go ahead and make girlfriend a category – it’s probably going to be used quite a bit in the coming months.
