Because if we've learned anything from American Idol, we've learned that it's the British who understand us better than we understand ourselves.
Right, Simon Cowell?
Apparently, people are still talking about Pia Toscano getting booted from American Idol. We've tried to ease the blow by proving she'll be just fine on her own, and yet people are still upset. We don't really get it, but someone who understands less is Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe. The man behind the show knows exactly how America has been voting since day one and he is here to tell you that Pia was never poised to win it all, not by a long shot! He explained:
“I know the [voting] results, so I know she was never a frontrunner. The fact of the matter is that it appears that Pia didn’t connect with the audience as much as we maybe think she did. And she wasn’t voted through.”
We think it's time to move on anyway. Quit it with the voters remorse! Aren't there like, eight more people to obsess over still. They apparently got your votes so how about you start giving them a little attention!
