Jennifer Hudson and Ashton Kutcher Tweet their shock after Pia Toscano is eliminated from American Idol


Shock: In the biggest shock of American Idol so far this season, 22-year old Pia Toscano was eliminated from the competition last night

Hollywood fans of American Idol were up in arms last night after the shock elimination of Pia Toscano last night.

Despite her stunning looks and incredible voice, the 22-year-old New York received the least public votes, despite being named favourite to win by all three judges.

Celebrities including Tom Hanks, Ashton Kutcher, Ellen DeGeneres and Idol alumni Jennifer Hudson Tweeted their shock at the results.

Out of three: The elimination came after Pia was in the bottom three with Jacob Lusk, left and Stefano Langone, right

Hanks wrote: 'Don't have an Idol habit, but how could the USA vote Pia off? I may be done for the season.'

Kutcher Tweeted: 'Who are the people that vote on American idol? That's just crazy! That Pia girl is dope.'

Chat show host DeGeneres - who was a judge last season - said she was 'shocked and sad', while Hudson wrote: 'I can not believe they just eliminated Pia ! ReAlly..????'

Judge Jennifer Lopez was lost for words and clearly furious after the results were read out during the live show.

'I can't believe what just happened here,' she said. 'I'm shocked and angry... I don't know what to say.'

Still smiling: The raven-haired beauty still managed to compose herself during most of the elimination

Randy Jackson was equally bemused and told Pia: 'I'm with Jennifer, all in shock. You were one of the best singers in this.

He reiterated that no matter how much talent and wow factor the contestants had, they still had to watch their backs

'No one is safe and you've got to vote for the ones you love.'

Aerosmith rocker Steve Tyler simply complimented the brunette stunner.

Angry: Both Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson were horrified with the outcome

'You look so beautiful when you sing - like a bird,' he said.

Pia who hails from Queens, New York had sang Tina Turner's River Deep - Mountain High on Wednesday night.

Jennifer had said afterwards that she loved the performance but wanted more from her: 'That was amazing,' she said.

'Vocally you proved to us you can sing up tempo. But I'm going to keep pushing you - what I want you to do now is start.'

Tears: But following the song she broke down in tears and needed to be comforted by the fellow idol contestants

Joining Pia in the bottom three last night were Stefano Langone and Jacob Lusk, both of whom were forecast as a good bet for elimination this week.

Upon finding out the results from host Ryan Seacrest, Pia still managed a smile.
She then went home to a standing ovation from the judges following her performance of I'll Stand by You.

But after the song she broke down in tears and needed to be comforted by the fellow idol contestants.

Pia's elimination wasn't the only thing to generate shocked looks.

Jennifer Lopez blushed and had to look away during Iggy Pop's performance of Wild One as he gyrated his hips just inches from her face.

She was the last judge to her feet to applaud the legendary punk rocker.

Arthur star Russell Brand also made a surprise appearance as a charisma coach for contestants.

Watch out: Iggy approached the judges midway through his performance

The pre-taped segment showed Brand meeting with contestants and offering advice.

The show also featured a performance of Unchained Melody by season four contestant Constantine Maroulis.

The other remaining finalists include Casey Abrams, who last month scored the judges' once-per-season save, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Paul McDonald.
