Idol Dumpee Pia Toscano Gets the Jay Leno Consolation Prize
Posted by Newson 04/10/2011 at 11:42 AM
Numerous high-profile tweeters were taken aback by the elimination of American Idol balladeer Pia Toscano this week (we kinda weren’t), but at least the surprise exit is giving her some good press. Toscano popped up on The Tonight Show on Friday night, and Jay Leno seemed to be on Team Pia, theorizing that she only got kicked off Idol because the voters foolishly assumed she’d be safe. His guest remained non-committally upbeat. It looks like she’s taking this in stride, since Toscano was happy to sing “River Deep, Mountain High” with Leno’s band, presumably inspired by Celine Dion’s version rather than Tina Turner’s.
