A fan favorite “American Idol” alum has announced that she is going on tour. Season 10 powerhouse, Pia Toscano, sets off with opera legend Andrea Bocelli. Here’s what you need to know.
In an Instagram post, Toscano informed her followers that she would start a nationwide tour with opera legend Andrea Bocelli. Bocelli is a world-renowned opera singer with five Grammy nominations and a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, along with dozens of other honors.
“I’m looking forward to accompanying @andreabocelliofficial on his upcoming BELIEVE tour ♥ ️,” wrote Toscano.
The photo describes the tour as “Andrea Bocelli’s Believe Tour with Vocal Powerhouse Pia Toscano,” which is no exaggeration. Toscano’s routine blasted the doors of the place during her season of “American Idol” until she was shockingly eliminated in ninth place.
The tour dates and location are as follows:
Tickets are now available on the Ticketmaster website. Make sure you have booked the correct date for Tuscany’s performance as she won’t perform with Bocelli every time the tour stops.
Over the years, many very talented singers have gone home shockingly early – Jennifer Hudson finished seventh in season three, Melinda Doolittle took third in season six, Chris Daughtry came fourth in season five and the future Grammy winner Tori Kelly didn’t even make it out of the Hollywood Week round in season nine.
But Toscano’s season 10 cancellation had outraged even acting legend Tom Hanks for excelling every week. When she was eliminated she became the Oscar winner tweeted, “I don’t have an IDOL habit, but how could the US vote Pia out? I could be ready for the season! HANX. “
Other celebrities who were shocked included Ashton Kutcher and her shockingly early elimination, Hudson.
Kutcher wrote, “Who are the people who are voting on American Idol? It’s just crazy. This pia girl is dope! # almost criminal. “
Hudson tweeted, “I can’t believe you just eliminated Pia! ReAlly .. ????”
Additionally, the jury save, which was implemented to prevent such things from happening, was used back in season 10 at Casey Abrams, so there was nothing the show could do to save Toscano.
But Toscano has held out since its “idol” days. She then appeared on “Dancing With the Stars”, “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Good Morning America” and “Live With Regis and Kelly”. Eventually she recorded a duet of “The Christmas Song” with the Italian trio Il Volo and toured with Jennifer Lopez, David Foster and now Bocelli.
She also starred on Netflix’s Westside music reality show, which followed nine musicians trying to break into the music industry.
“American Idol” will return to ABC in spring 2022.
