In conjunction with the “American Idol” top 11 being in the New York area for some performances on their live tour, Pia Toscano took to the stage of “Live! with Regis and Kelly” on Tuesday morning in order to perform her new single “This Time.” (You can check out the video of the performance below!)
From a vocal standpoint, this may be the best TV performance that Pia has given of the song yet — and you could really start to feel her emotional connection to the lyrics. While it would be easy to criticize Pia for not moving around more on the stage, you also have to remember that “Regis and Kelly” does not exactly offer you a premium when it comes to performance space.
Following the interview, Pia announced that she would be diving immediately back into music as soon as the tour wraps up in September — and that her debut album would officially come out in stores at some point in the fall.
The next show for the “Idol” contestants is set for Wednesday night in Philadelphia. What do you think of Pia’s performance, and are you glad to see her getting so much time to shine on her own even while she travels around the country?
