Pia was actually one of my favorites, and I was even getting bored with her, and I was not surprised that she was eliminated. Between the boards and people that I talk to in the real world, I think that is the general concensus. She has a gorgeous voice, but it was almost like watching a stone statue sing. I know that she has been compared to Tamyra Gray, and that is how I felt about Tamyra, too. I also knew of people that had gotten frustrated with her because she seemed to discount the judges' advice for serveral weeks in a row. Her attempt at "revving" it up last week, was too little, too late, for some. To be honest, I was expecting her to go (or to at least be in the bottom). I hope that Stefano does not have to pay the price for her leaving. If he leaves on his own merit, so be it -- I do not want those upset about Pia to try and punish him because he stayed.
