In case you don't know, Pia was a 22-year-old contestant on American Idol who got kicked off last night. She had a good voice, but for me, it wasn't like "DAYUM GIRL." It was a little forced. In fact, she kind of reminded me of Jessica Simpson -- not looks-wise, but voice wise. Don't get me wrong. She's a better singer. But when she belts it's so forced that it hurts me to hear it.
So everyone went on a
By Pia being eliminated, she'll still get to go on the Idol Top 10 Tour, however, she won't be obligated to the strict contracts with American Idol -- i.e.) she won't have to record a hideous first single and sing it at the finale (aren't all of those just awful?) and won't be subjected to all the Idol hoop-lah. She'll have more creative freedom. Has anyone heard of Daughtry (eliminated 4th and went on to sell a platinum selling album)?
Also, I'm not so sure that it wasn't Pia's time to go. I mean, sure, Scotty, Jacob and Stefano need to peace out and should have gone before her, but when it comes down to it, I think that Haley and Lauren have a TON of talent, and are more likeable. Yeah, Pia's a babe. Yeah, she has a good voice. But when I hear Lauren and Haley, I can't wait to download their singles. I can't wait to see them the next week. They just have a little 'oomph,' ya know? So while I agree Pia is a good singer, I don't know if she has the Idol factor.
