After the shocking elimination of finalist Pia Toscano last night on American Idol, the 22 year old singer had to be escorted off stage by medics. Pia Toscano told Life & Style exclusively today what happened. Keep reading to find out!

Pia Toscano is recovering today and told Life & Style, “I was getting very lightheaded. To be in the position I was in last night was a bit much and a little overwhelming.”

The news was hard for the judges and other finalists to believe. One of the fan favorites and front runners, Pia Toscano, was voted off after a great performance on Wednesday. Pia pulled it together well enough to sing, “I’ll Stand By You” before the cameras stopped rolling. She then was unable to physically leave the stage on her own. “It was very hard for me to get through that last song,” Pia tells Life & Style. “I was trying to take deep breaths, and it wasn’t working out.”

Today she claims to be much better! What are her plans? This is what she tells Life & Style. “I definitely want to do movies and commercials, all that stuff — musicals, everything!” she says.

What do you think? Does Pia Have a good reason to act that way, or is she just being a bit…dramatic?

    a bit dramatic…are you kidding?…if that were truly the case, she would have definitely lost the Oscar to Casey…no, she just had the carpet unjustly pulled from underneath her…as far as the judges incorrectly using the one and only save a few weeks back and the voting results last night by a bunch of amateurs, I have five words stolen from Mr. Gump…stupid is as stupid does…
