Like the judges on the American Idol show I was shocked that Pia Toscano was eliminated on Thursday night.
Part of the reason for her departure was due to the judges who insisted the week before that she sing an uptempo song to showcase her diversity. She took the advice of the judges and was eliminated.
I think another reason was the unrealistic system of speed dialing voting whereby voters can voted hundreds of time by one means.
In view of the fact that Casey Abrams was eliminated but saved by the judges and the elimination of Pia whom I and many others had picked as a finalist, it is time that the method of voting be restricted to the number of votes cast by any one particular instrument.
I would welcome comments from Idol fans.
