I was as shocked as everyone else. Stefano? Maybe. Pia? Not in a million years would I have guessed that! I'd want the votes checked.

Paul McDonald? Seriously? Are you watching the same performances I am. This self proclaimed "cool cat" is clearly one dimensional. Listen, I was on the Paul bandwagon when he came out of the gate like everyone else, but his whispered-style singing and often inaudible lyrics have left me bored to tears. Last night was a travesty, but lets face it, it's a television show folks. We deal with the aftermath of poor voting practices every single day, why would you expect anything else? I'm all for letting the "professionals" vote and taking it out of our hands - clearly we have dropped the ball one time too many. Good luck to those remaining - the fickle public will decide your fate!

They were right to vote Pia off. She was to sure of herself. She needs to be more humble and show more showmanship. She always wore clothes that stood out over the rest and thought she couldn't be touched..Well guess what! she was wrong.....I hope James wins because he might not be the best looking but he can really put on show!!!!

I am looking for someone I would pay hard earned good money to see in concert. Pia was not one of them. She was not a performer even though she DID have a GREAT voice. She is a recording artist but I wouldn't pay to see her. I havent really seen anyone I would pay to see. I love Paul though because he has a fun presence on stage and he is a good singer. American Idol is not just about voice ( and that is all Pia is). It is also about stage prescence.

Pia is by far the most talented contestant; there's no way she should be eliminated. I echo the sentiments of "Jerry8181". The judges should really regret that they wasted their one save on Casey. He has absolutely no talent when compared to Pia. I won't watch American Idol anymore. This is a farce.

People who are ignorant to not watch American Idol over Pias being voted off are insane. American idol just have to figure out a way for people to vote fairly! People will call in a hundred times for their family or friend! Every judges, Ryan, the audience and the public were shocked! And myself, thank God she'll be on tour. She has no problem these kids are gonna get offers coming out their rear to sign contracts for managers, producers and record execs! Amertican idol has finally got the best judges and because of that amazing talent who has made it so far,!!! LOVE< LOVE the show just figure out how to fix the voting process!!

It's not rocket science, folks. Randy, J Lo, and Steve Tyler blew it when they used the save too early in the show. We knew they wasted it on someone who didn't have the full idol package. Perhaps someone should explain to Randy (again), J Lo, and Steve Tyler that this is American Idol. It's not just a singing contest. We're here to promote and launch a successful career of an idol who can sell lots and lots and lots of records...It's business...Look at the record sales of the last seven or eight idols. It's gone downhill with exception to Carrie Underwood.

Shocking to say the least! Pia does have a strong voice, but needed to do somethingthan just stand there and sing the same kind of song, over & over. Looks aren't everything. She never acted like she was really into it, just expected to win! Needed to do more than just show up. & what kind of appropriate guest as Iggy Pop?? seriously? With so many young children in the audience, I thought the choice was a little inappropriate for the audience. Plus, what a has been.... couldn't sing back in the day, still can't. That was not entertainment. You all looked like fools last night!

you all know what is happening here.It's attitude,and teenage girls burning up their cell phones voting for the guys they think are hot,girls are getting elilinated quickly because of this!Pia was the best singer they had,as well as Scotty and you know it.Pia was the whole package and Scotty is pure talent.Casey is lovable and Lauren has a great voice,and if you gave haley the right song,she would blow it out of the water.As for the rest of the contestants,what are you thinking?I will never understand why paul was ever there,James is no Adam Lampert or Daughtry,Jacob acts like a girl and sounds like he has cotton in his throat,and Stephano struggles every week to stay there.Either the show is rigged,women are jealous of Pia,or America has been brainwashed into believing what todays music is considered actual music,or we are all on drugs or something!Ban teenage girls from voting or limit their votes to ten,or you will never get another female Idol!

Stefano? Paul McDonald? What is going on here. I agree with Donna Doo to let the professionals decide or change the voting somehow so this doesn't happen again.

Kissin Kate you said it all!!!! I couldn't have said it any better!!! It's not about true talent anymore. Every time Pia sang I got the chills. It's hard to find true talent. Yes, jealous seems to be the problem of today's women....it is so sad. Pia has everything looks, shape and talent and I'm sure she will go on to have a fabulous career. Another one is Scotty....true talent. Watch they will put him off next.

Please do something about the way people are voting...It is a talent contest...NOT a Popularity contest...Give the American People a chance to save someone too....bring Pia back and Never allow this to happen again !!!!!If you can't control how many votes each person can submit, then give that privilege to the judges alone. They are the best judges the show has ever seen...let them decide who is the most talented !!!

Next to Jennifer Hudson getting eliminated this is the worst decision ever happened on Idol. This girl has everything, class,beauty, chrisma, charm, and can sing like an Angel. She is everything an American idol should be. She is Selena reborn and I'm going to miss her. The sad part is we got 8 people left and they all know she is better than them. You know what this is worse than Jennifer hudson because this happened with 8 contestants left.

5 straight women leaving should be proof enough that the voting demographic is young girls who value cute boys and image-rich girls over substance and talent. Why do you think Kris Allen beat Adam Lambert, or Lee DeWyze beat Crystal (are you kidding me?). I may go as far as to say that a women will never win AI again.If you are one that called Pia "boring" ,or "lacking stage presence", you too are more image conscious that talent evaluating.Oddly, this may be the best thing that couldhave happened to Pia, as her popularity now is probably higher than ever. I wish her the best!

I would hope someone would grab Pia NOW!!!! and give her a contract. Was kind of hoping Randy would have done that on last night's show. The lady has everything, No need to watch the show the rest of this year. I'll just wait for Pia's CD to come out and be waiting at the door to buy it. Also the judge's should be picking the winners only. Worst show ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No question Pia should have made it to the finals, but maybe the Judges should take some...maybe all the blame! First, they wasted their one save and secondly, everyone is "beautiful" and "incredible"...but they aren't. Now maybe they will finally start judging...where is Simon when you need an honest voice. I really thought Tyler was going to be great...but he is useless, Jennifer is no better and Randy rarely says anything productive.j.

They sacrifeced Pia to get more people to call in. Make that money! No mention of how many call that were received, that was unusual and when she was eliminated, the first thing ryan said, you have to make those calls! Then to follow suite, the judges say the same thing! They gambled with her as the pawn. Get more calls or lose viewers. They lost me as a viewer and hopefully everyone else is able to read between the lines and see what happened. America's vote, yeah right! All about the money!! C ya Idol!

FIRST OF ALL, THE VOTES SHOULD BE LIMITED AS THEY DO ON DANCING WITH THE STARS. AI IS SUPPOSE TO BE A SINGING CONTEST, NOT A PERSONALITY CONTEST. PIA GETTING VOTED OFF WAS A JOKE!! I LOVE THE NEW JUDGES AND THAT INCLUDES RANDY, BUT THE UNLIMITED NUMBER OF VOTES GOTTA GO.......

First and foremost, it's a singing competition. If you can't sing, your stage presence is not going make a good show. You can learn to put on a good show and yes, even learn to sing, but again, right now, it's a singing competition. One of the best examples of not having much stage presence, (at that time) winning American Idol and becoming one of the biggest stars discovered by Idol is Carrie Underwood!! Don't vote on them because, they're cute, pretty, can jump up and down a lot or run around the stage; vote for them for they're singing! That's what the show/competition is about! Either they can sing or they can't!

The Judges used the one power save unwisely, way to early in the show. It was an EXTREMELY poor decision, which will certainly be on there minds for a long, long time. This was the absolute worst decision in The History of IDOL. The American voting public got it so wrong. In the minds of millions of viewers it questions watching the show from here forward.Pia is everything that an American Idol should represent for America. The remaining contestants can't even come close. Pia will without a doubt become another Jennifer Hudson, or Carrie Underwood a Super Star. Hats off to you PIA. Your in the number one spot above all the others.
