Last night on American Idol, the lovely Pia Toscano did not receive enough votes to escape elimination. The public reaction has been one of shock, disbelief and outrage.
For ten years American Idol has prided itself on allowing the American public to vote for their favorites. Why did the voters keep Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone who were in the bottom three with Pia?
It was an emotional climax to a great show. Why her out of the nine contestants? She was the odds on favorite to win the title in May.
It is one of those mysteries which has plagued American Idol since Season One when the talented and beautiful Tamyra Gray was eliminated. In Season 5 we had the incredible Katharine McPhee’s lost to Taylor Hicks.
Fate is cruel on this orb, and sometimes, it is a joker to allow certain people to win. Be it entertainment or politics.
Beauty, poise and talent are rare combinations in the entertainment world. Singers like Pia, Tamyra and Katharine are graceful stars to brighten our dark nights on this planet traversing the cosmos. They may not gain the title of American Idol, but this does not change the reality of their place in the symphony of life.
For Pia Toscano:
Pia will have her glorious time in the sun. There is no doubt that her future will be one of the constant stars for years to come.
