Pia After 'Idol' -- 'Everyone Was Sobbing'

4/8/2011 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pia Toscano and the rest of the "American idol" finalists were a crying mess after the 22-year-old's shocking elimination last night -- sources connected with the show tell TMZ.

Pia Toscano American Idol
"Everyone was sobbing" after the show, says one of our "Idol" spies.  We're told Pia was probably the most popular contestant among the contestants, and, "They were totally bummed out she was leaving."

The contestants -- sans Pia -- showed up for the "Kiss Off Dinner" at a restaurant in L.A.  Pia made her entrance after everyone was seated  ... followed by tears, more tears, and then one of the producers put it in perspective to make it all better, saying, "The point of 'Idol' is to launch careers.  Pia, you're launched."

We're told Pia didn't check out of the "Idol" hotel last night, but she'll be out of there today.

UPDATE: Apparently, Pia ran out of tears, because earlier today she was seen out in L.A. with a big, fat smile on her face.

She was anointed "most popular" by the press, but we didn't believe it. A beautiful natural voice, but there is a lot more to being a musician than just singing well. There is living, breathing, feeling, embodying the music... and she just didn't do that very much.

This matters nothing. That out of breathe sounding girl Lauren is already set to win. It is such an obvious scheme by American Idol producers.

Bull****! Haley was all smiles when Pia left. It's only when she saw she was on camera that she started to cry.

Haley was happy to see Pia leave.

Who cares!? She has no charisma whatsoever, she has an awesome voice but the other contestants do too. I think Stefano should have been voted off first though..

I think Jlo & Randy owe all those kids an apology, especially Stefano. Their reactions were so rude. I would like to know who they think should have got booted. America got it right. Pia has a voice (Sometimes), but absolutely no stage presence.

Judges had a save and they chose to use it. They sat there and insulted the American Public by practically telling them they are morons. They did not know how to vote. Pia was not that great she gave me such a bad vibe. All she sang was the same old ballads. These judges are Lame. If they thought Pia won this competition already than why did they not give bad critism to any of the other idols. She reminds me of a lounge singer, or beauty pagent competing in the talent competition. I was not impressed. Idol is a complete joke from the Judges they have on there. Let's face it Steven was more interested bedding Pia than judging her. Jennifer Lopez, when was your last hit. And Randy who care. You used your save and that is that. And what about the Idol producers bringing on the pervert Iggy Pop. They practically bleeped out his whole song. I expected him to either take his clothes off what was left or have security come out. You can tell all Randy and Jennifer was apalled. That act backfired. LOL

I'm glad PeePee is gone. Stupid name and boring as hell. You couldn't pay me to go to a concert of hers.

*** The fact is that the idiot judges used their 'Save' for the wrong person who, although nice, is not Idol material in part because he is not nearly as talented but also because he's not physically well and is always in the hospital getting blood transfusions. Those judges only have themselves to blame. Pia deserves a 2nd chance. Hope someone signs her to a label, like Clive Davis, because she's Platinum material. Good luck, Pia! ***
