She may not have won the American Idol title, but instead got a very nice consolation prize for Pia Toscano. A record deal with Interscope Records. So does it even matter anymore to win? Find out the deets behind the deal below.

Pia Toscana fans can take pleasure in knowing that all is not lost with her early exit from last season’s American Idol. News of her signing on the dotted line with AI mentor Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records is all the buzz today. It has many wondering if she will follow suit and find some post American Idol success like many who were surprisingly booted off from the show early. For example… Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert, etc etc.

The shocking early exit of Toscano is still talked about today, who very early on was dubbed a frontrunner to win it all. It’s hard to believe she ended up in 9th place. I hate to admit it, but I was a little miffed that the judges already used their ‘save’ on Casey Abrams when they clearly and more than likely would have used it on Toscano. I know, I know… America voted. I can’t blame the judges. Just venting a bit. Still a bit bitter I suppose. Sigh… Enough on that.

According to the label, they will be releasing her first single, ‘This Time’ on Tuesday, which was penned by Esther Dean, who also wrote hits for Rihanna – ‘What’s My Name’, ‘Rude Boy’ and ‘S&M’. I’m a big fan of Pia’s, and am excited for this single to drop. Watch for my review next week. I’m confident that it will be a hit!

So even though the gorgeous brunette didn’t win it all, she’s still a winner! Not too shabby for a gal who came in 9th place, eh? Jimmy Iovine’s not stupid…he knows talent when he sees it. Of her record deal, Toscana said:

“I’m looking forward to working with him and everyone at Interscope Records and 19 Recordings. This is a dream come true.”

Congratulations Pia! Well deserved! Readers, will you be downloading her new single this Tuesday?
