American Idol 10: Top 9 Results Show

Pia Toscano. So fcuking wrong!! I can't believe I'm doing a write up about you this early!! I can't complain that much just because I don't vote (I can't actually), but how much does it suck that American Idol voters these days seem to never vote for women? I didn't believe it before, but I do now. I guess, if you can sing like that and look like a total hottie, women will hate you and see to it that they get you out of the way. Or here's another theory, Pia is so tan that America thought she was a female of minority, and as such, got voted off. Oh wait, she's Italian! I don't know. Once upon a time, I survived Jennifer Hudson's eight-place finish, Alex Lambert's premature boot, and yes even Daughtry's untimely elimination. But this? Personally, this abysmal voting result tonight stung so badly.

Recap after the jump!

Am not even going to write the usual recap because I'm obviously still in shock right now, but here's I want to say about the show: Constantine Maroulis sucked and Iggy Pop was just pure strange. That's all.

Also, Ryan’s begging America to “stay with us this season, we need you”. Umm, yes, I feel like ratings will continue to slide. A lot of casual viewers I know loved Pia. Most guy viewers I know loved Pia. So, it is what it is. I'm out.

BOTTOM 3
Stefano Langone safe
Pia Toscano WTF!
Jacob Lusk safe

SAFE
Lauren Alaina
Casey Abrams
Scotty McCreery
Paul McDonald
James Durbin
Haley Reinhart

The show's rating will go down next week. Big time.

I liked Pia at the beginning but I was bored when always heard her sing those ballad songs... So it's okay for me when she's eliminated...

synthesia said...

she was SO boring, had no stage presence, and basically sang the same song in the exact same format every single week. Peace out.
A good voice can only get you so far, you have to entertain and not bore everyone to death with your sleepy ballads.
Believe me, I love a good ballad, but there was no passion or oomph in hers, I never felt it.

Robbie said...

^ What she said.

Basically, the girls are not bringing it this season as much as the guys are. Pia is a great singer and very pretty, but I don't think she's gaining fans each week. Plus, her breakout was only during Top 12 girls night. It wasn't enough to form a solid fanbase.

Soooooo this isn't really a big surprise for me. :P

SHOCKER!!!

hay naku, sabi na nga ba at iniisa-isa ang mga non-whites this season. nakakalokah!

with a series of strong performances, and that "STAR QUALITY"... haay... america got it really wrong this week!

DAM THE NATION said...

Synthesia: Are you kidding me? The statement "Pia is boring" is debatable. Some people enjoy listening to ballad. Also, it is pure BS that people complain that Pia does a ballad every week they chastise Scott for doing the same thing every week. Same with Jacob and Stefano! Did you even hear Jacob sing something upbeat other than their group performances? Did you hear Scotty McCreery's performances? They all sounded the same.

I agree, a good voice can only get you so far, but not at Top 9. No way on merit should Pia have gone before Stefano, Jacob, Paul and, yes, even Haley.

I'd even go there and say that in this atmosphere Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood would have been voted off before the Top 5! Just saying.

AI just lost a viewer. Not that it matters to their ratings since I'm not from the US but yeah...

I will miss getting the chance to hear Pia sing and get a great recording every week

Okay, so I thought Pia has been AMAZING every single time she performed. I must agree with you; when have some of the other contestants brought anything else to the table? The judges brought up the fact that she's been doing ballads, but haven't said anything to anyone else (except Thia). Pia is beautiful and SEXY, but seriously... Why not vote for her? She actually does have the entire package. And I agree that women may not ever win this competition ever again. All the girls are leaving. Most guys watching the show do not vote. Mainly all the girls vote for their favorite guy because of their looks. The last time a girl won was back in season six with Jordin Sparks. From then on, it's been "which guy can we choose now?" Seriously, she was the most talented person on the show this season. I'm guessing American Idol will not change. Girls dominate the voting making the guys on the show get through. GOSH, THIS REALLY INFURIATES ME. It really makes me not want to watch the show anymore, but knowing me and my love for music, I most likely will keep watching it.

PS: ... SORRY THAT I WROTE A BOOK. I tend to ramble when something this retarded happens.

DAM THE NATION said...

Robbie: Seriously? Did Jacob bring anything to the competition other than his oversinging mess and pelvic thrusting? Did Stefano do something new to Idol other than his nasal tone and cheesy rendition of songs?

When exactly was Jacob's breakout performance? Stefano's was Top 12 and he was a mess after that. I'm just saying. Boring or not, she deserved at the very least a Top 5 finish!

DAM THE NATION said...

Kevin: I love your book then! Haha. But yes, I completely agree with you 100%. Arguably, the best vocalist this season and America screwed her over. The other two girls should watch out!

Anonymous said...

good riddance! my eardrums can finally rest from all of her screaming! i love that the judges are all in agony because one of their favorites just got booted off! she's overrated and over-pimped!

DAM THE NATION said...

Anonymous: Really? You still have Jacob and James to scream at you next week, which to me is more grating because they're not usually on key when they scream. That's all.

Dindin V said...

oh no! the result was a shocker! i wanted jacob to go! not pia! why like that? boo to the voters!

Anonymous said...

And when Jacob and James scream, it's VERY unnecessary. When Pia "screams" in her performances, it's showing her range in her head voice. I mean really... Even I can hit the notes Jacob and James scream (I can go even higher). It's called falsetto. It's not even really that hard. If Pia used her falsetto, she'd probably making some whistle notes. Just sayin'. All right. I'm done. Deuces.

DAM THE NATION said...

Dindin: I know. So fcked up!

DAM THE NATION said...

Kevin: You hit it in the nail again. Nothing more to add.

Anonymous said...

Pia is robbed and the show is definitely rigged. She can totally win this. American got it wrong "AGAIN" this time. That's why I'm really against on using the save vote to Casey, that early. >.<

DAM THE NATION said...

Oh and one last thing: The boring argument is a bit strange. Stefano is as boring as they come. But why is he still there? Just saying.

synthesia said...

I never said I liked Stefano or Jacob either, they aren't that entertaining to me.
Pia had a great voice, don't get me wrong, but she lacked severely in the performance dept.
She needed to choose a wider range of songs, all of the ones she picked sounded the same to me.

I am not denying others should have left before her, but then again, I am only voting for one person (Casey). It's America's decision, and obviously some agree with me.

Plus, I tend to see a pattern with the non winners, they go farther than the winners on most occasions.
I'm sure Pia will do fine, and maybe if she livens up a bit, I might even listen to her!

synthesia said...

One more thing to add; the judges need to go back to constructive criticism. They seem to LOVE everyone and don't give much advice for advancing anymore. It's a bit maddening.

katuray said...

because stefano is a guy! and most AI voters, i assume, are young girls who go crazy over the guy contestants, regardless of their talent. remember simon always reminding the public that AI is a "singing" competition?!

i don't recall any of pia's past performances where she was "screaming". she's a great performer. probably one of the best on AI history.

and saying that america got tired of her ballads is pure BS. she's never been in the btm 3 when she was doing ballads, and now she got booted off the competition after doing an upbeat nbr. quite ironic.

DAM THE NATION said...

Synthesia: Ok. I get your point. I just think that Pia should've not been singled out as the only person who's been doing the same thing every week as I don't think anyone has really sung outside of their comfort zones. If she needed a wider range of songs, then I guess that's applicable to almost everyone, especially Scotty.

I hope she'll be fine after this. I wanted Didi Benami to get signed after her elimination but nothing happened. Oh well.

DAM THE NATION said...

Katuray: WORD!!!

Anonymous said...

She was so boring, that's why she was not voted for.

Anonymous said...

I know people who voted for Lauren and are rooting for her but think that Pia is just way too boring. You know? It has nothing to do with gender, it has to do with performance and Pia just didn't really bring it...

DAM THE NATION said...

Anonymous: Again, the boring argument is a LAME! Stefano is as boring as they come. But why is he still there?

DAM THE NATION said...

Anonymous: Who exactly brought it last night? If it has to do with performance, Stefano and Jacob should've been eliminated and not Pia. Maybe you thought she didn't really bring it last night, but do you think Stefano and Jacob did?

Anonymous said...

To be fair, America wanted Casey gone Top 11 week, which would have eliminated a guy. Had ths been allowed, Pia would have been saved.

Not Casey's fault, but I think the judges were trigger happy with that save. used it too early and a better talent was lost because of it. Perhaps this is an example of where Simon is missed - he was VERY particular about who he saved. Made sure it was 150% worth it.

Anonymous said...

I think this has something to do with the fact that alot of teenage girls watch the show and they vote for the guys...I know that is what i do. I liked Pia but i really like James! He is just like Adam Lambert and i lovvee him!

kPg said...

It shocked me! I'm not really a fan, but I expected that she will not be voted off THIS early. But I guess America has a problem with female contestants now. OR the guys (especially Scotty) just have THAT much more fans than the girls. So sad.

Anonymous said...

this is so shocking.. i am not a fan of pia.. but last she's so amazing.. looks like america doesn't want women.. :(

Fidel Antonio Medel said...

And I actually thought that Pia would win this thing, thus making her the first female winner since Jordin Sparks. I don't think Pia is deserving to go before Jacob (tired of him oversinging), Stefano (he's not bringing anything new to the show), Scotty (one-trick pony), and Lauren (overrated). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Haley stays as long as she could to give them hell.

Will said...

I wasn't able to watch the show due to this 3-day fever I got, but hearing about this pissed me off. Kinda wished Jacob got booted first before Pia.

If Casey gets eliminated, I'm sure I wouldn't be able to continue watching the rest of the season.

Anonymous said...

This sucks! How come Pia got voted off before Jacob AND Stefano? Pia can sing better than those two combine. If another female contestant is going home next week... well, do I have to finish my sentence? I am REALLY upset. Shame on you, America, shame on you.

azialle said...

After watching the results show I was constantly screaming, "F#ck you, America! F#ck you." I am really not a fan of Pia, but she is one of the best among that bunch. Though I love Stefano, I would have wished he was eliminated than another girl leaving the stage of American Idol. I am really upset with Americans right now. I wish I could vote but due to location issues I could not. I really hope this will be the last stupid elimination this season. I really wish.

Anonymous said...

Man..it's totally wrong. Totally fucking wrong. I dont even want to watch AI anymore. I predict her to be in the final 2, but now, she's in the bottom 3, and....got eliminated. What's wrong with u america?

Nicole said...

I am too upset. Sigh. Girls go head over heels to Stefano, James, or even Scotty and the other guys.
GOD! I wish Simon was back, he always knew what to say and it's a shame that he's gone. And to all who say that Pia was boring, F YOU for she is not.
What's your definition of exciting?! Damn it. Jacob/Stefano DESERVED to go. I can feel that both of them feel bad that someone BETTER went hom.

Anonymous said...

American Idol Season 10 can call itself shocking season. But i'm still love it. Hope Pia will go far with this.

TT said...

WORST RESULT SHOW EVER!!!!!
America, please !!!
But you know, America let George Bush be the president twice, so American people are not good at voting, I guess.

I was mad at first time. But I think Pia will get record deal anyway. And I think she's going to pursue her career just like Jennifer Hudson or Chris Daughtry do. I believe her talent.

The most boring contestant for me is Scotty. To me, He sings a same song every week.
And country is only for American people, you know, people who votes for George Bush. You know what I mean if you're not American. Haha ;)

ancheen said...

Sabi ko na nga ba, Jacob's excessive hip thrusting was really some sort of voodoo to hypnotize people to vote for him. XD

On Pia, here's a new argument: she is BORING. hahaha. chos lang.

Pia's one of the better singers in the competition. She deserved to stay longer than the others. I don't know what the people hear during the performances. Bingi ata silang lahat? SO disappointing.

Anonymous said...

BLAME ON YOU RANDY JACKSON FOR SAVING CASEY THE FAT ASS AND ALWAYS OVEPRAISING TO JACOB THE DEVIL!

nQw said...

I'm a guy and I love Pia's singing first!!! Why the hell is she out???!!!

I hope she gets a record deal soon!!! Coz she's the one to listen this season!!!
