But fickle fans sent Pia home on Thursday night’s American Idol. As host Ryan Seacrest announced her name, the stunned audience booed.

Pia Toscano murdered Tina Turner’s classic “River Deep, Mountain High” on American Idol last night. That’s meant as praise by Steven Tyler – she rocked!

Safe to say she succeeded in a good way, with a powerful, self-assured and uptempo rendition. It was just a winning performance from a pro allMore >

“She’s so into The Hills and she thinks she’s like this Hills girl now,” Heidi Montag said. “She’s calling up all the tabloids. If she cares, she wouldMore >
