Pia Toscano was lavished with "American Idol" judge love but lost the audience's affection.
The dark-haired 22-year-old from the Queens borough of New York City was eliminated from the singing contest Thursday, drawing disbelief from the show's panel.
Judge Jennifer Lopez said she shocked and angry that viewers failed to keep Toscano in the competition after a powerful performance Wednesday of "River Deep -- Mountain High."
Randy Jackson said the results made him mad.
Toscano's elimination leaves eight finalists.
