Finally, a slow song that made me stop and actually want to listen instead of going into a bored trance.

American Idol Top 24 Girls Performed last night: Pia Toscano ended the American Idol 2011’s Top 12 female performances with “I’ll Stand By You.”

What did the judges say?

Steven Tyler:  That was unbelievable. That was gorgeous.

Jennifer Lopez:  I knew that you were a stand-out, but honestly I feel like you were a little tricky cause you were saving that, you were saving that for when it counts. It was out of this world.

Randy Jackson: Let me just say something right now…this is our first standing O of this new season. …  You just put yourself in the top. That’s how you do it!

What do you think of Pia Toscano’s performance?
