Pia Toscano is an American singer from Howard Beach, New York. Toscano placed ninth on the tenth season of American Idol. Previously considered to be a frontrunner in the competition, her elimination came as a shock to judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler.

Toscano had auditioned for American Idol four times before. She made it through to Hollywood in Season 6, but her journey ended in the Hollywood solo round. In 2010, she auditioned for the tenth season of American Idol in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and was put through to Hollywood, this time making it through to the Top 24. She impressed the judges with her rendition of I'll Stand by You during the semi-finals, receiving the first standing ovation of the season and earning her a place in the Top 13. Randy Jackson commented that this was one of the most "amazing performances" on Idol in its 10 seasons. In an elimination that viewers and media outlets have described as one of the most shocking in Idol history, Toscano was eliminated from the competition on April 7, 2011, finishing in ninth place.
