Pia Toscano Performs "All in Love is Fair" on the American Idol Top 11 Show

American Idol Season 10 beauty Pia Toscano performs Stevie Wonder's "All in Love is Fair". This week, the theme for the Top 11 Show is 'Songs from Motown'. Pia was truly thrilled with this theme, saying, "I'm so excited that this week is 'Motown Week' because I've been performing these songs with my bands, and they're so much fun. There's so much soul, so much love."

During rehearsals, Pia garnered huge praise from Interscope Chairman and producer Jimmy Iovine and the music producer she worked directly with, Harvey Mason, Jr. "There's just not singers like her any more. The quality of her tone, and her voice, and her control puts her in the category of other great singers," raved Mason. Jimmy Iovine said, "Pia was born with a great instrument. She's a powerful singer. We've all seen her hit all the notes." This is higher praise than Jimmy's given to any Idol contestant. His only advice to Pia is to "stay in the moment, and not over-think it. Cuz that's what can hurt her."

Pia Toscano takes the American Idol stage in all black and looks stunningly gorgeous. Once again, Pia gives a technically perfect performance! The audience gives her the longest standing ovation of the night, with all three judges applauding ~ which doesn't always happen. Jennifer Lopez praised, "Once again you kill us with one of your killer ballads. Amazing vocals. You can have a career like Celine Dion. You have that special of a voice, you have that special of an instrument. Not everybody can hit those notes so effortlessly like you do." Jennifer goes on to tell Pia that she has to own the stage, and that will "take her over the top. Your amazingly awesome." Randy Jackson loves that Pia can hit notes "dead on," but he's tiring of the standing-still-at-the-mic-ballads. He told Pia, "You’re phenomenal. But, give me a midtempo! Give me an uptempo. Bring something a little different." Aerosmith's Steven Tyler was ready with another off-beat compliment, telling Pia, "Right now, you are the closest star in this American Idol universe. It’s just beautiful."
