'American Idol' Finalist Pia Toscano Performs on 'SYTYCD' Results Show (VIDEO)

Pia Toscano, 'So You Think You Can Dance'Perhaps as a reminder that winning isn't everything on these reality shows, Pia Toscano was the guest performer on the penultimate results episode of 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). She only came in ninth last season on 'American Idol,' but that hasn't slowed her down in her career.

She performed her new single 'This Time' and proved that your finishing place in a reality competition is not necessarily a reflection of your talent. You don't have to win to be vindicated that you're great, or to be successful.

But Nigel Lythgoe was quick to remind everyone that the real winner in all of this is dance. Caitlynn made a strong case for herself against the one-two leaders in the judges' eyes, Sasha and Melanie, but was it enough to earn her a spot in the finale?


As it turns out, the early favorites on both sides of the gender field wound up as the final four. Sasha and Melanie were the no-brainer finalists for the women, while Marko and Tadd earned the spots on the men's side. Now will come the toughest one. Of these four, who deserves to win? Honestly, we can't decide between Sasha and Melanie (we're just like Nigel).

Pia is being "packaged" just like dozens of other want-to-be stars with the same over-synthesized music, lyrics and beat. That will be a mistake I think. One of the best things about her is her strong voice. Her material should emphasis her voice with her voice being the main draw . The background music should not be so dominate. Think about how Jackie Evancho sounds on her CD "Dream With Me"....a smooth clear voice, with a beautiful and lush orchestral arrangement behind her. Who would you rather listen to?

They can try and try to make her a star, but I don't think it is going to happen. She is attractive and has an okay voice, but she lacks a charisma and because of that she will just have a so so career like many of the American Idol contestants over the past eleven years. Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have done well because they have a likeability factor. It was so strange how once the people watching the show voted her off, the producers started immediately promoting her and planning her CD. What was she number 8 voted off? I think the fans of American Idol spoke loudly on the prospects of her being a winner.

if Pia would learn to dance she will be a triple threat like Beyonce.

That's interesting no background singing? Pia is good enough to sing her own backgrounds and the lead at the same time--sounds great I can hear the ending--sounds cool!

I started out watching this show and love the talent. However, I stopped because I could not stand Mary whatshername screaming. That goes right through me. Yes, I am older but I love young people, love to watch and listen to them but she is soooooo annoying.

Ricky, should not have been voted off. This is becoming like American Idol. The good ones get voted off too soon. They need to change the voting. They should limit it to 10 votes per source.

It's great to see Pia again, and it's great to see how much she's grown since Idol. Her song was more up tempo, and she was working the stage. I think she has some good people working with her, and that's letting her shine. She always had the talent and voice, but now she has more experience to back it all up.
