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.
