Pia Toscano Channels Celine Dion, Remains American Idol Favorite

by at . Comments

Making an apt statement, Pia Toscano chose a Celine Dion classic last night and covered "All By Myself" during the first night on stage for the American Idol finalists.

To many, including the judges, this New York native is all by herself atop the current leaderboard.

Toscano's rendition almost brought Jennifer Lopez to tears, while the audience rose up to give Pia a standing ovation during a soaring, sterling chorus. This woman knows how to sing a ballad, that much is certain. Watch her do so now:

Scotty has the most talent that voice is amazing. I don't even like country music but after hearing him sing "Your Man" by Josh Turner I became a huge fan. Scotty will win.

I think as of now we cannot judge yet 'coz every wk theres an elmination and it depends on how they perform but for me mostly the underdog will win like before. As they perform every wk i think scooty, james durban is good.

Why is it that at this form and others those who do not like Pia or should I say favor other contestants cannot talk about their favorite without attacking Pia? Pia supporters do not attack other contestants, they have no need to do so, Pia wins those battles for them each time she performs. My best to all the contestants........especially Pia. PS. this is a singing competition, not a dancing or instrument playing competition, and thus far Pia is far and away the best singer.

she has an amazing voice but if she wins what will she sing? the same kind of songs weve had for years? my only real critique of her is she needs to find something to do with her body, mainly her hands. she just kept motioning the audience the whole time! i dont get to watch a i though.... but i like her so far

Sorry, McReery - OUT (will make it in country though), Lusk - OUT (has outstanding range, but don't think he will go into top 5), Elaina - (maybe top 5), Abrams - I agree wholeheartedly that you cannot count him out, as a matter of fact, I think the final two will be Toscano and Abrams, been two of my fav's since auditions, and if he can keep hittin the notes, Durbin is #3.

Ive known Pia for 5 years. There isnt a song out there that she cant do and do rediculous. This girl is as good or better than anyone singing on the circuit right now. She WILL NOT have a bad night. And she has something going for her right now the others don't have. A huge Fanbase which is surprisingly a majority of women and young girls who know how to text vote. You are looking at not only the next American Idol but the next Kelly and Carrie. She will dominate the market for years. Google her and see what record producers are already saying.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
