The Hockey lockout is finally over, and the guys on ice are back to play! Carrie Underwood must be relieved that her husband, who plays for the Nashville Predators, finally has something more to do than hold her purse on the read carpet. I KID!

Speaking of American Idol alums, Pia Toscano from Season 10, will once again be the official National Anthem singer for the LA Kings. As such, she performed a powerful version of the song at today’s home opener against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Check it out below.

    Effortless job! Pia is a pro at singing the Anthem. Love her! 

  • GaryOC

    Nobody does it better.

    Pia made Sports Illustrated’s front webpage under the “Extra Mustard” section as the Lovely Lady of the Day.  I concur.

    An excellent rendition of the NA! Pia looked and sounded great! No straining to reach the high notes either.

  • justmefornow

    Pia sounded great. I love the NA sung by singers that have enough range and power to handle it and do it justice.
     She’s now my second favorite NA singer ;)

  • mzhallcat

    Very nice, Pia always sounds great singing the NA.

    Yet another flawless performance of our National Anthem by the one and
    only Pia Toscano. Her power, poise, and grace is unbelievable.
    Incredible!

  • iluvai

    I hope she is doing well.

  • girlygirltoo

    Has Pia said anything more recently about how the work’s going on her album and/or when she’ll release some original music?

  • Last Laugh Lane

    *inserts ubiquitous comment seen on every thread about how Pia lacks star power*

    No I really still do adore her voice especially her tone and range as always on the NA. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of her by any means.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Just terrific – how it should be sung.

    What a beautiful version of the NA.  Such a pretty young lady.  I wish her much success!

  • jumpstart4u

    Beautiful voice, talented girl. 

  • MaxxS

    Are she and Jessica Sanchez going to release albums any time soon. JS had so much potential.
    Not sure te if call pia an international recording star… That seems quite a stretch at this point. JHud & JSpark have shown a big movie time can help.. Or kat on TV.
    Interesting seeing jhud getting more and more acting roles and apparently doing well in her nextmove as a drug addict. People study acting for decades and get no where.. A cruise ship singer with no acting background goes on a realty show and is an Oscar winner who now can pick and choose her roles. Whatever happened to her Winnie Mandela movie? It didn’t get released yet? And all the talk now is about her new indie at Sundance. Plus she sings a.t an inauguration ball

    Pia sounds good, and funny but I like her a lot better in the hockey jersey than dolled up to perform lol.

    I didn’t get the “international” recording artist thing either.

  • forwarddad

    Pia has a pretty voice but don’t think her career is going anywhere . Maybe she should try Broadway?

  • durbesque

    I think you have something there about Broadway.  I take that to mean musical theater on various levels, not specifically on Broadway.  Her voice is loud and brassy, like many Broadway singers I’ve heard.  Even Diana DeGarmo has a clear straight-forward delivery that is keeping her rather well employed.  I wonder if Pia can act passably.

  • yclept

     Her voice is very pleasant – and I bet most experts would say technically, she is perfect or close to it.    It just doesn’t scream “Unique”.  She does an outstanding job with the NA, no doubt about it.   Nobody would ever say she lacks talent – but obviously, she didn’t mesh well at Interscope (reportedly, she recorded a zillion demos – only one got released – then she was scrapped completely).    She is far from “done”, and we’ve seen many Idols make money with their music even if they never went mainstream.  Problem is (for me) that I am not sure what Pia can do if she *isn’t* mainstream.  It’s not like she can go down the path of James Durbin.    She really is a tricky artist to promote, I think.

    Clear, powerful, exquisite, and measured. Never thought she sounded this good on Idol! Really nice job here.
