She didn't give me a sense of connecting with the words during her ballads...there was just no emotion and she always looked uncomfortable . Somebody mentioned Streisand earlier and her oddities in singing, but Babs always connected to her song and looked comfortable while doing it.
I think the R&R night was the end for Pia primarily because her time was up. If you chip away at the lower ranking vote getters and send them home, everybody's time will come at some point. We had no sense that she had an enormous fan base. The secondary reason why this was her night to go may be that while she did an upbeat song, she still looked uncomfortable. She is a singer....not a performer.
