Jennifer Lopez Taps ‘Idol’ Alum Pia Toscano For Summer Tour
Pia Toscano will embark with Jennifer Lopez as a back-up singer on a six-date tour this summer, including stops for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America. “I have to pinch myself a little bit that I am in the same room with her now,” Toscano, a favorite from American Idol‘s Season 10, said to The Hollywood Reporter, following a rehearsal with Lopez herself.
Toscano recently backed J. Lo in an Idol performance of “I Luh Ya Papi,” alongside past contestants Jessica Sanchez and Allison Iraheta. And she’s excited to continue learning from the Season 13 judge. “[W]e don’t think we realized getting into it what it takes to become a superstar like Jennifer Lopez,” she says. “I was just watching her in rehearsal just now and she is performing like she is doing a concert.”
