American Idol 10 Top 40 Spoilers – Featured Contestant – 01/04/11

Gangreen29 will be profiling an American Idol 10 Top 40 contestant every day this week. Spoilers come to us courtesy of Joe’sPlaceBlog.

Today’s hopeful is a repeater.  Maybe you remember her from Season 6 or 7?  I vaguely remember her from past spoiler lists…

***

Pia Toscano – Pia is a repeater, having tried out in season 6 and 7.

She is definitely an old school idol contestant. Idol once was filled with pretty pop belters like her. Now, she seems almost like a breath of fresh air compared to the heavy emphasis on “artistry” the last few seasons.

I love those types of contestants, but I think Idol has been missing its staple of glory noting Celine Dion covers the last few seasons. The most recent contestant who could compare to Pia is Katie Stevens, however, and she was not warmly received by the idol audience.
