The X Factor USA 2012 top 16 are primed and ready to move forward with the season two live shows, which kick off November 1 on FOX. Young Adults group finalist Paige Thomas, the single mom who wowed the mentors with her beautiful vocals and pop star presence, is among the group of talented $5 million hopefuls. And she's starting off the next round with a former American Idol star in her corner.
Pia Toscano, an early Idol season 10 favorite who finished a surprising ninth behind winner Scotty McCreery, has tweeted twice in support of the San Antonio native, who also competed on the long-running FOX reality show. On October 17, Toscano wrote "I LOVE Paige Thomas!!! She is stunning, humble & talented- so refreshing! #xfactor #beepic"
Following Thomas' safe passage to the live shows, Toscano again tweeted words of support and encouragement, this time writing "@PaigeAva I am so proud of you :-) u are going to do incredible things love- u are already making quite an impact on the world. :-)"
It's sweet to see one former reality star offering kind words to another; there's not nearly enough of that kind of behavior and it makes watching the competition--and rooting for the contenders--more fun.
Is Paige Thomas destined for greatness on The X Factor USA 2012? Tune in and find out.
