Less than a week after being eliminated from Idol, Pia Toscano is movin and shakin! Deets up next!
How's it going guys, I'm Bridget Daly at the ClevverMusic HQ, and I gotta admit, I'm a little confused about what the whole point of winning American Idol is. Let me explain...today news broke via Us Weekly that Pia Toscano has signed a record deal with Interscope! Don't get me wrong, she absolutely deserves it, but what does this say to the future hopefuls on the show? According to the report, Pia signed with none other than Jimmy Iovine, who has been coaching the Idols along their way this season. Sources say she was approached immediately after the show, and Interscope bosses have been on the horn with every freakin songwriter and producer in town to rush out an album for her.
I can't help but think about past Idol castoffs who have, in their own rights, done even better than the winners. Case in point—Jennifer Hudson, who was voted off when there were six contestants left. Chris Daughtry, the number five contestant, has gone on to have an extremely successful career since 2006. And Adam Lambert one of the most successful runner-ups in show history. We all knew Pia would go places regardless of how far she went in the competition, but does this hurt the credibility of American Idol? Maybe, maybe not. Sources are saying even though Pia is free so to speak, she's still under a strict contract with Idol, who basically own her through the summer Idols tour. This could prevent her from releasing any original music for some time. What do you think about all of this? Comment below, and remember to sub our page to stay posted on more music happenins. I'm Bridget Daly signing off for now.
