"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 is a good bellower, a screamer if she had to sing a quite lullaby to a baby she would deaffen the poor thing cause she can't sing soft.....can you just picture her singing sweet nothings in your ear. it would be like someone banging a church bell right in your head !!!!.....
Another thing is she had no appeal to female voters in fact the women I ask would watched didn't like her cause they felt that she was consieded and smug and that will turn a woman off in a NY minute....and face it most voters on that show are young women...as long as they can see them selves equal to the other women then they will vote for you but if you project the "I prettier then you and sing better then you and I know it" adatute then you're toast..... thats what got her voted off....
She needs to stop being so smug then she will appeal to the whole audition and not just the males

Well big whoop-de-doo. I am sure every week there are people upset over who gets voted off. If they brought Pia back against the rules this year, even if they kept Stefano, I would never watch Idol again. The people voted. It was fair. It is just like an election. People whine about who gets voted into office yet half of the eligible voters don't vote.

Wouldn't it be nice if the young people in America, would pay as much attention to the important things going on in America, than this crap? The kids today, when they become adults, will be saddled by an up to 80% tax rate, just to bring this countries budget in balance, thanks to the idiots from both political parties in Washington.

Get a grip people. This is just a reality show. In the long run of things, she won't last. None of them do. Her style of singing is not what is popular today. I'm listening to her right now on Regis and Kelley and she isn't all that great. And to ask another Idol to step aside is just plain wrong. People didn't vote for her period. Get over it. As far as the judges none of them know what is relevant in today's music.

These people don't know that you have to vote? Get over it and get a life. American Idol loves this and the ratings will go up because of this. Da.

It happened get over it already. Pia is good but not good enough to win. What does it matter she'll get her lil deal now and she's also on the tour. Why do you think she's not that upset about it.

Obviously they don't care that much about her if they already don't know that Pia got a record deal less than 24 hours after getting the boot. Not to mention she's signed to Jimmy Iovine's label and he was a mentor on Idol so I'm sure he saw the talent she has and that's why he scooped her out so quick. Plus, Chris Daughtry and Jennifer have been way more successful then people who have actually won their season, only person I can think of is Carrie Underwood. You go Pia, I'm sure you'll be much more successful then anyone who wins this sason. To me personally she was my top favorite, now that she's gone I could really GAF who wins or doesn't.

Hundreds of "organized" fans. Hmm. Perhaps it's hundreds of organized crime members. They do pretty much control show business, so I'm not surprised if they "override" honest voting.

"American Idol" is all about the people voting for their faves. Pia didn't get as many votes as Stefano, it's that simple. It does not mean she's not talented.

Stefano should not even be on the show. His big backstory was almost being killed by a drunk driver.A year after the wreck he was busted for DUI. Year before was busted for marajuana. In seasons past when these kind of arrests were made public the contestant was eliminated. Stefano had to have convenietly forgotten those arrests, in order to use getting hit by a drunk as his pity story.
