"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.

Clearly Stephano has a better chance of winning than Pia had because he got enough votes to stay and she didn't. These so called fans are mean spirited. I liked Pia too and was as shocked as everyone else when she got eliminated, but it is what it is. Get over it.

GET OVER IT !!!! SHE LOST.....she's BORING. She's pretty and has a good voice but that's it. Not entertaining at all. If you really wanted her to win you ALL should have voted for her. That's the name of the game. Enough already.

People didn't vote for Pia because she is BORING. America got it right. There are far more interesting and talented performers on American Idol than Pia. Pia needed to go she was never going to win. She did exactly the same thing every week and it was old after the second time. Stefano has a really good voice, every bit as good as Pia, or better. My guess is that if you look at how the votes have been going Pia was never a viewer favorite, and by that I mean my guess is that she wasn't getting the top number of votes every week or any week. Let her go make her album and let's see if America buys it that's the real measure of who has the goods and who doesn’t. I won’t be buying her music. It’s been done and done better by others.

ROFL!! Is that what they call Jacob? Man-asia? That's funny. His "girlishness" is distracting, but he is still one of my favorites along with Pia, Scotty and Casy.

THIS IS A RYAN SEACREST PRODUCTION! You can only have a dramatic elimination on 3 shows currently on (Top Model, Hell's Kitchen & Dance Crew). And Top Model's Wednesday elimination was far more dramatic then somebody getting voted off a show where the purpose of the show is for fans to vote a person off on a week-to-week basis. If they wanted to vote on a yearly basis then they should have played "musical rules" when they were playing "musical judges." The people of American Idol really need to shut up b/c they don't want to loose Idol Faithful by offending them; especially since there is a far more interesting show coming on in a couple weeks called "The Voice."
Pia will be fine & if you ask me she got to comfortable over the weeks. She went from this amazing talent to a Celine-Dion (not as good as her) immitator. Incoorporation=flattery and amazing; immitation=boring and forgetable. The Judges messed Pia up...she was trying to impress them & not the people who vote and buy. She should have listened to Steven, slow ballads are her thing. She ****ed up. She got voted off. Hollywood needs to get over it.
But hey give Ryan Seacrest credit for making something not important seem like the world has fallen apart.

Ps. You can only say the vote is due to Popularity if everybody left is bad. The truth is everybody left is just as good...if you ask me, better than Pia. The girl has no personality what so ever. Paging Wendy Williams and Rachael Ray: Pia needs your help to find some personality. Wendy, Please teach her how you worked in radio and now have your own TV show w/personality. Rachael, Please teach her how made an EMPIRE in your 1st year on the scene by talking to vegetables. Paging Dr. Personality. The girl has ABSOLUTELY NO PERSONALITY WHAT SO EVER!


AMERICA GOT IT RIGHT!

People need to realize that A.I fan base are teenage teeny bopper girls and they will always vote for the cute guy. Heneforth the purpose of the show has become obsolete. If a person is that good, they finally at least get the exposure on national T.V If Pia has all ready signed a contract with someone great---then that is all that matters. Many have not been chosen by the fan base, and have moved onto great careers. (Jennifer Hudson) and I also think Antebel as well. I think Stefano will be this week. I just hope Casey doesn't win!!

Getting voted off is the best thing that could have happened to her.

This way she won't be tied up to AI and their ridiculous contracts where they (AI) make all the money.

This girl can sing and she will get a recording contract that will probably sell. Then she can collect the money instead of giving it away to AI had she won the competition.

This only gives Stefano's fans more ammo. People want to see him gone, but why? America voted, it's not his fault, and it's just obsurd to ask him to switch places. Pia didn't deserve to leave this early, but neither did Stefano. The judges have pointed out Pia's weakness for the last 3 weeks, IF there is ANYONE to blame it is the judges. And besides, she's already got her record deal. She has already won, so the fans need to stop being bitter...if you didn't vote, then you have no say. Bottom line. Stefano, keep doing your thing! You sound great, you look great, and you keep us entertained. Watch out America, Stefano could be the dark horse!

Pia is a good singer but not the best, thats why she didnt get enough votes. One by One they all must go to leave One American Idol. All of them are open for opportunity for outside offers as soon as their done with their tour. Pia can always come back next year, and she might get offers after the show. AMERICAN IDOL is not going to change their policy and rules for Fans so get over it. And if they did it wouldnt be fair. Leave it as it is American IDOL.

First I want to say that I liked Pia. But everyone needs to step back and realize that voter(s) ar going to vote for the person that thy like the most. Personally, I like James. I am not a young teenybopper girl either. I also like some of others, but when I vote I always vote for james. In the end...people didn't vote as much for Pia, therefore she will not return. That's the way it should be. She was not voted off, she just didn't have enough fans to vote for her. Besides...like everyone says, she will be fine.
