There was a major uproar after Pia Toscano's shocking elimination in 9th place on this past season of American Idol, and rightfully so. The fact that the likes of Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone continued long after the talented diva was hard to swallow, but now Pia fans can rest easy: her single has premiered!
Take a listen to the world premiere of "This Time" after the jump...
Okay, so it doesn't exactly sound like a song that is going to launch to the top of the pop charts, but overall a good effort by Pia. It sounds like Jimmy Iovine and the folks at Interscope Records are giving her the "Jordin Sparks treatment" with this mid-tempo ballad (just slightly faster than the slow ballads that got her in trouble with the judges on Idol). I'm hoping once the full album comes out there will be a few fast dance anthems that we can all jam out to. C'mon, Pia—where's your "Since U Been Gone"?!
What do you think of "This Time"? Are you excited for the launch of Pia's career, or is there another former Idol that you have your eye on?
