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.

Her musical interpretation is trite and she has no grip on melody. Her voice is tremendous and she looks great, but I would never buy anything she sings. She tried to pull off a Tina Turner song which required way more artistic talent than she ever dreamt about to ever be able to follow the song.

Sorry America, but ya'll hypocrites. I must chuckle to myself how America is shocked and upset that Pia was voted off, but guess what?; That is exactly what happened when you don't ****ing vote. If you don't want to see your favorites go home, vote for them. If you do not vote, you have no right to get upset. I've always voted for my top three, every week. Those people are James, Scotty, and Casey. Needless to say, I had a damn right when Casey went home because I voted for him, and he shouldn't of gone. It's sickening that he was voted off, and that boring cow Lauren is somehow still there. Alas, I'll continue voting for James and Scotty because they're the best of the best. STFU about this, if you didn't vote, you've got no one but yourself to blame!
