I have never seen a single moment in time last as long as it did just now as I watched this recent episode of American Idol. Standing center stage were Pia Toscano, Ryan Seacrest and Stefano Langone. After Jacob Lusk got the typical Ryan Seacrest heart attack joke..."Your dreams are trashed...just kidding your safe.", Pia and Stefano remained. One was going home, and everyone in the world including Stefano himself knew it was Stefano. And then the verdict is handed down and as if the whole scene gets played out in slow motion, Stefano's death mask goes from white to something on the order of "WTF!" while Pia's smile of calm confidence goes to shock and then cool acceptance. I paused this scene and rewound several times counting frames, looking at every face in the crowd. The parents of Pia were devastated, the judges shocked and ready to quit. It was just the most unreal thing to watch unfold. |
My initial reaction is one that is probably shared by many die hard Idol fans..."I will NEVER watch that show again!" But of course we will, there's still Casey.
How cool would that have been to have Casey come down and say.."You know what, you guys saved me two weeks ago, but she REALLY deserves the save. Please let her take my place." That would have been ubber cool!!!
But alas we have to say good bye to Pia and continue to watch out for her in Real-Life. I looked on You-tube and found so many videos she posted of her just singing any old song in her kitchen, living room, etc.. She is truly amazing...check them out.
