'American Idol's' Pia Toscano Releases 'This Time' (Video)

The music video has the singer driving in a convertible, frolicking on the beach

Former American Idol contestant Pia Toscano released her first music video, for the song “This Time.”

Toscano, who placed ninth in the tenth season of American Idol, spends most of the video belting out her lyrics in a field or on the beach. She also drives around in a blue convertible.

While the video feels very much like the first video from a relatively new singer, it does showcase Toscano’s beauty and powerful voice. On the streets at night she sings, “I’m mad as hell, I can’t take it no more.”

STORY: 5 Theories On Why Pia Toscano Was Eliminated

Many fans were surprised when Toscano, 22, was eliminated so early from the competition on American Idol. The judges were shocked when Toscano was voted off by America. "I have no idea what just happened here," said judge Jennifer Lopez. “I’m shocked. I’m angry. I don’t even know what to say.”

Toscano was signed to Interscope Records soon after her elimination. She is said to be working on her first album, which will come out in the fall.
