"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.

Im aghast with this article. Why bring Pia back and oust stefano? what is his fault? who is Pia anyway? This is a lot of Crap. AI Management should never heed to the calls of this crazy bunch of Pia fans who are weirdos. Morons to be exact. I love stefano and i am sure he will survive this competition. Go stefano.

Stefano was my favorite since the start of his Idol competition. I been following him all over from FB to Twitter and other Blogsites. He is consistent and a tough survivor> I ouldnt stand all the hype about Pia, esp. in another website where they made all sorts of articles to make Pia look like she was swindled by Stefano. This is grossly unfair. Why cry over spilt milk? and this crazy action by Pia fans ;aunching a Petition to bring her back and eliminate stefano is the craziest thing hat will ever happen to american idol. If that happen, i will stop watching Idol and cursae to high heavens why Nigel Lythgoe allowed that to happen. BULL****

People should just get over Pia getting voted off because for one she was a one trick pony. She always sang one way and any good artist knows you have to mix it up and smile and ackowledge the fans and show some expression. Anyone remember the first shocker vote off on AI, it was Chris Daughtry and when that happened I don't remember him getting alot of press and people making a big deal about him. I guess you have to be one of the beautiful people and have big boobs to get alot of attention cause thats the real reason why people are upset.

Pia deserved to win. But those young teen angers are always making call to the handsome guy. I also believe the judges telling everyone how great they were do an injustice to the contestants. We need judges like Simon who called a spade a spade. If everyone is so great then they should all win. Life is tough. She probably has cut a record deal.Some times you win, sometimes you lose and some times you get rained out. Life is and can be very hard. Just look at Japan.

Pia deserved to win between the two. The little teeny boppers the 12, 13 14 year old girls think he is soooo cute so they vote over and over for these young handsome men. She can always try again next year. Also I wouldn't be surprised if she hasn't already signed a record deal.You win some you lose some and some get rained out.

Simon would have been the first one to tell Pia that she was a one trick pony, good voice, ok looks but boring as h e l l!!! Not enough to win the competition. Instead Haley is sexy and can carry a tune, she's likeable and fun to watch!

Wether they make it or not afterwards, it is what it is: A COMPETITION!

On the other hand I've seen better artists in America's Got Talent but last time the winner was a sad, sad, sad country singer that was supposed to perform in Vegas...for an empty audience I guess...

Lets just admit it now, Pia just did not get the votes. Im sure that most of the people complaining didn't even vote for her. Oh well! She is very talented but it is all about the votes. I get tired of hearing that Stefano should have gone home. This guy is amazing and has the biggest heart ever!! Considering all he has been through he deserves this and america's votes. Go Stefano, we are all praying and "voting" for you. GO FANO!!!!

Stefano has a nice powerful voice. He is entertaining and has a very upbeat personality. He needs to stay and should win.

If anyone thinks the Idol producers are going to kick someone else off so that Pia can return, think again. Pia's fans need to relax and get over it. She didn't get the votes! Seacrest doesn't say "vote for the best singer," he says "vote for your favorite." Pia wasn't everyone's favorite. Pia will probably get signed by a record label and she will be fine.

@#126. What rapper has won idol? That's right none. Stop trashing another genre ("that rap garbage")just to pump the genre you like up. Besides, the country dude will win this year - not the rocker. LOL! GO Stefano!
