Mamma Pia! Shocking Elimination on 'American Idol'


The "American Idol" studio was just as stunned Thursday night as when Casey Abrams feared going home. A clear frontrunner in the judges' eyes, Pia Toscano's rave reviews didn't win over the voters.

Without a lifeline, viewers got the final word and Pia was eliminated from the talented pool of competitors. The judges used their one allotted save this season on Casey Abrams. Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone also landed in the bottom three, but received enough votes to progress forward in the competition.

Watch the video for Pia's goodbye performance. "American Idol" returns to Fox on Wednesday night.
