Apr 11, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Pia Toscano, a front-runner on Fox’s "American Idol" who got booted off the show last week, has landed a record deal with Interscope Records, reports USMagazine.com.

Interscope is chaired by "Idol" mentor Jimmy Iovine, the story notes. Interscope told her Thursday night after the program that it wanted to sign her, and on Friday morning executives at the company called songwriters and producers to bring an album together, the article notes.

As previously reported, her elimination was seen as a huge shock, with the judges clearly surprised and upset by her elimination.
