American Idol: Pia Toscano Scores Record Deal!

April 10, 2011 08:35 AM by Lisa Princ

This week on American Idol on FOX fans were outraged and the judges were left in tears when front runner Pia Toscano was eliminated after her awesome Rock And Roll performance. But rest assured Pia is not going anywhere – in fact, she scored a record deal less than 24 hours after her elimination. Keep reading for all the details!

American Idol’s Pia Toscano has scored a record deal in less than 24 hours since her elimination, US Magazine has confirmed. In fact, Pia will record her debut album under Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records. According to a source with the inside scoop on the record contract says “Pia is being signed to a deal with Interscope Records who are rushing her into the studio to record an album asap. Starting Thursday night after the show, Interscope told her they wanted her and first thing Friday morning Interscope brass started calling every top songwriter and producer in town to get an album together and rush release it.”

Fans can rest assured that they will see an album release soon as the source also added “Papers are being finalized. It’s basically a done deal. She’s signing. They rushed everything but she’s so excited.” While there was no official comment from Pia yet, we can assume this young lady who handled her elimination with class has got to be nothing shy of excited as she stated in her elimination interview that she “couldn’t wait to see what my future holds.”

    It was unbelievable that Pia was eliminated. I think she was too classy for the teens who do the most voting. Reading them, I suppose Lauren will be the next to go. I’m happy that Pia immediately got a record deal. I hope that it’s not too rushed. I imagine that it will get a lot of promotion, and I hope that it’ll lead to great success for her. In many ways she reminds me of Lena Horne (shows you my age).

    I can’t believe what happened!!! Something had to be wrong with the votes or there was some dirty dealing behind the stage. She was one of the best. I will wait on her cd. Looking forward to it!!!

    I am surprised at people, this is a competition, people get voted off. I voted and I take offense when someone says I didn’t. This is American Idol, not Jennifer Lopez Idol!!!!!!!!! Grow up all of you. Be a Sport. Don’t you know how to play by the rules? Or are you all still babies?

    Thank you. I will continue to watch American Idol now. I was so upet that I wrote in and said I would never watch the show again. I knew someone would pick her up. She is amazing.

    I’m still in stock over her elimination, but I would ABSOLUTELY, without question, purchase her album. This girl has a beautiful and dynamic voice and I feel she’s going to go very far. I wish her all the best in her career. She deserves it.

    Pia you shine because undoubtedly, you are the best. If birds could talk they would say that you have a voice that is unmatched, by any of the other contestants. The world is shocked by your elimination. Meanwhile with that incredile voice, your career will soar like an eagle and be heard all over the world. I look forward to coming to your concert and buying your CDs. Good luck Curtis Walker.

    I think the show controls the outcome, regardless of the votes. We all know that MOST A.I. winners have had minimal success. They know that she is the MOST TALENTED SINGER in the competition and is recording ready. No need for her to continue in the competition just to be labeled the “winner” when she could be cashing in on being “the one that got voted off and dropped an album before the season was over.” Funny how she gets voted off after she performed an up tempo song like Randy asked her to. I think they just wanted to see how she would do before they sent her packing. It confirmed that she was ready. She probably knew she would get voted off. Yes, her stage presence and engagement of the crowd needs a little work, but she does not need any more polishing on her singing. Everything else can be taught before she has her first concert.

    She was not as good as they made her out to be. Super boring. It was like she was singing the same song, no variations at all. Glad to she her go, there is a lot better talent on the stage that just out sang her. She was on Dancing with the Stars and she sang that same old song and i had to turn the channel. Get some new material.

    I thought she was very boring. All she was was yelling an loud. I certainly will not buy her album. I was glad she did not go further in the contest. I did not like her personality. She seemed robotic with no emotion. All she was was loud.

    SHE SUCKED BIG TIME. SHE CAN ONLY SING IN ONE WAY. SHE HAS NO PIZAZZ. SHES VERY BORING AND DOESNT LOOK GOOD ENOUGH TO BE A SINGER. NO ONE WANTS TO WATCH AN UGLY FACE. SHE JUST DOESNT HAVE ANY EMOTION OR HEART. GIVE IT UP PIA, NO ONE WORTH ANYTHING WILL BUY ANYTHING U PUT OUT. SPEAKING OF PUTTING OUT U MUST B PUTTING OUT IF YOU GOT A RECORD DEAL. HAHAHAHA.
