Like so many people today, I’m still in shock over Pia Toscano getting voted off “American Idol.”
She’s so talented and she had a good shot to win the whole thing. A lot of people are outraged. They're saying the “Idol” voting system is all messed up, that it shouldn’t just be decided by viewer votes and that judges should get a say in the finals - like “Dancing with the Stars.”
They should look into changing the voting system NEXT season so you're only able to vote once per text, phone call or online. To change it now would be unfair to those contestant who are already gone. But for now, it is what it is. Pia’s done (although I think she’s definitely going to get a record deal).
Speaking of “Dancing,” talk show host Wendy Williams will be right here for a "Showbiz Tonight" Newsmaker interview. She was recently dumped from “Dancing with the Stars.” Wendy will reveal what Pia must be going through – one day you’re there, the next day you’re gone.
