Those of you who have vowed to never watch American Idol again after last night's elimination, listen up. Supposedly, the whole thing could have been avoided.
If you haven't been watching AI this season, you're unfazed by the fact that Pia Toscano was eliminated last night, when many people had her pegged to win the whole thing. The fans were shocked. The judges were floored. Ryan Seacrest almost cried!
Okay, that didn't happen, but it was a pretty emotional evening, one that could have possibly been avoided. Sources are reporting that there might have been a glitch in the online voting system that actually cost Pia votes. Viewers have complained that when trying to vote for the singer via the show's website, their votes wouldn't register. One couple admits to having to reload the page five times before being able to process a vote. And honestly, who is that invested in the show that they'd stick around that long to get a vote in.
So, could Pia have been saved? Possibly…but then again, remember, America voted off Jennifer Hudson and Chris Daughtry. It happens!
