"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.

0409_pia_stefano_TMZ_EX
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.

Yes Pia can sing but she is boring. I don't think she ever had a chance of winning so who cares. I like Stefano but he won't win it either so does it really matter???

#1 The vote was not between Stefano and Pia, it was who got the most votes.
I just assumed Pia was going to win based on the judges comments.
#2 They used the save too early.
I am a Stefano fan, I would buy his music and already have his idol songs on my ipod.

It was a big surprise that Pia was let go on AI.Results were counted and Pia was slated for elimination.Is there anyway that results could be counted again?Pia has worked very hard to get where she is and then gettiimg the lowdown of being beat out by Stephano.If the judges were given a chance like they saved a person before isnt; there a way AI producers and anyone thatt has pull give her another chance.Pia should still be competing.Maybe when AI is finished there could be a discuss to make different rules in case this happens again.

She was not that good(great singer,but no personality or stage presence what so ever.)And the judges should be ashamned of the way they acted,Stefano deserved better,no respect.

All I have to say is you should of voted if you were a Pia fan. So lay off Stefano. Its not his fault. He has a great voice too and wants to win just as bad as all the other idols. GO STEFANO!!!!

As an Idol watcher from the very beginning, its clear to me and other mature watchers that the voting system is far from perfect. Talent wise, this is the best year ever for Idol. Pia is right at the top, but her style is perhaps more appealing to the older watchers like me. With talent and beauty like hers, Pia should certainly have a successful singing career if she has a top manager/agent.

i`m still mad the three judges let go the girl with soft voice with guitar in hand,she was something special and was never seen again,because this show in beginning is controlled by the judges and also the producer,which is a little to fixed for me!

Get a Life! Pia did not get that many votes because she did not conect to the fans. They should not take the decision out of the fans hands. If we don't make the decion why watch.

why stefano.. at least he can sing...try listening to paul he should have gone a long time ago. Part of the problem was the judges to them everyone was wonderful every single week..American public needs to be guided to try to keep them on track and remind them its a singing contest first..

Why are all these fans just now stating their opinion? Had they voted for Pia then maybe she wouldn't have gone home. Obviously Stefano & Jacob have more fans and supporters than she did. It's a simple fact, vote for who you want to stay. And begging to send Stefano home doesn't make sense, he had more votes than her and as Nigel stated... it wasn't even close.

Pia had a beautiful voice but lacked a whole lot of stage presence in my opinion. Standing still just will not be enough to win this, they gotta bring so much more. But it's all history now, she's set with a sweet deal. So on with the show! James Durbin ROCKS!!! He's got most of it all Down! Better than the others in my opinion. As far as Stefano he's obviously got some loyal fans, enough to out-vote Pia! Connect with your audience, Stefano US...lol N You go Stefano!!!

"Idol" is no longer a talent contest. It caters to young girl "Teenee Boppers", who vote multable times for the male hunks, regardless of their talent. It has developed into a popularity contest. Pia is a very talented woman who would certainly have place in the final three, if talent were the main criteria.
