"Idol" Fans -- Get Rid of Stefano, Bring Back Pia!

4/11/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" fans are bombarding the show and FOX ... demanding they bring Pia Toscano back ... and give Stefano Langone the boot.

Our "Idol" spies tell us hundreds of fans have been begging FOX to recognize the injustice of kicking Pia off the show, and bend the rules.  It appears these fans are organized, because they come with a singular message -- Stefano has no chance of winning and therefore he should be removed now as a sacrificial lamb so Pia can come back.

We're told the fans have even reached out to Stefano ... pleading with him to remove himself from the competition.

Certainly nothing like what the fans are asking for has ever happened on "Idol" -- but hey, it never hurts to try.

Pia losing is a shame. However, Stephano has a great voice and should get our vote.

Sorry but all I can say about Stefano is that his bodybuilding days got to his brain cells. The macho in him, his religion and ethnic background all had a part in creating a rather sad, narrow minded person. Case in point: The look of hatred he gave Jacob Lusk as he gave a heartfelt hug to a contestant in need. Man that look went right through me. I'll never spend a dime on him that's for sure.

Time to grow up and put on the Big People pants! Seriously, people are actually petitioning to get Pia back on Idol? Were any of these activitists out petitioning for truly WORTHWHILE causes facing society lately? As a musician, I can say that although Pia had a nice singing voice, she had no performance qualities to engage her audience beyond her vocal throws. It was much like watching C3PO from Star Wars singing ballads on Idol. Though I believe there are FAR MORE LESS talented people left in the competition (Hailey and Stefano, who are about as talented as a wrinkled scrotum that has just been kicked by a mule), let's face it...American Idol is not a musical competition anymore. It is a popularity contest, nothing more. Voters spoke by voting Pia out and that says something! To bring her back, as "hundreds" of fans are demanding would only open up Idol to 10 years of law suits from previous contestants who didn't get a second chance. So I say leave the results as they are. The whiny Pia fans can go watch her on tour, in all her stiffness and rigid glory. Stefano is now doomed to go as a "payback" or "sacrificial lamb" for this monstrosity against Pia from last week. So where is the fairness for him? I guess this will spell the end of American Idol far more than the departure of Simon and Kara. I'd be willing to bet Simon would not have had as much fondness for Pia (or any of the contestants) this year anyway and he KNOWS his music!

To Peter (# 181): Did you happen to notice the awful expression of what was truly JOY on Hailey's face when it was revealed that PIA was going home? Now that was pure evilness...she was basking in Pia's departure because I'm sure Hailey knew she never could have beaten Pia and therefore was glad to see her leave, perhaps securing her hopes at winning Idol...which isn't going to happen unless the TV audience goes blind and cannot see her sex kitten attire which is how she sells herself. Simon bashed a contestant a season or two ago for trying to promote their talents (or lack thereof) with sexy clothing. Didn't work then, won't work now with Hailey. Only person getting off on her is Steven Tyler and heaven knows he probably has something in that Coke glass each week to make everything so damn "amazing," "beautiful," and totally "nailed." Haily is a no-talent hack! Can only guess what her "one trick" is.

This is the reason the judges were allowed (1) save this season...But instead of saving it for a premature elimination...Which this obviously was, they blew it on Casey Abrams, who was stinking up the competition and clearly has no chance of winning. Bring back Pia, she's the best talent in this competition.

They should have never saved Casey....stupid mistake! They are way to generous with their comments and I miss Simon because of this. Pia's out....move on!

doesn't hurt me a bit that she's gone, in fact, i was rooting for it to be her. yeah, she can sing ballads, but come on, that gets old REAL fast. besides, the girl has the personality of a freakin' doorknob. can Stefano win...who can say, Americans are a fickle lot at best. she didn't get the popular vote...GET OVER IT! and, i thought the judges were terribly unfair to all the contestants with their weeping and moaning over her elimination. be professional, or go home

Pia should not have got the boot. Stefano should have left. The last two standing should be Jacob and Pia. This is just a popularity contest not a singing contest. I wont be watching this show anymore, its ridiculous.

Scotty should go next. He is just a plain singer. Cannot reach high notes and is not versatile.

I think America got it right. She was my choice to send packing. I also think Stefano is very good.
