Pia Toscano Earns First Standing O of Season 10

by at . Comments

Do you hear that sound, Jacob Lusk? It's the beautiful voice of Pia Toscano, and it's coming for your title as Early American Idol Favorite.

This 21-year old from New York stood proudly at the microphone during last night's semifinal round and belted out a version of The Pretenders "I'll Stand By You." Finishing with a powerful flourish, she earned the first standing ovation of the season from Steven, J. Lo and Randy.

"That was unbelievable," the Dawg gushed afterward. "That's how you do it!"

Watch/listen to this contender below and then decide: How far can Pia go?

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.
