Pia Toscano, the brunette beauty who was sent packing in the American Idol elimination heard ’round the world last season, is back in a big way, and so is one of her Idol cohorts.

Tuesday proved to be a big day for the hit show, as Toscano and her fellow alum — and season 10 winner — Scotty McCreery both released music videos for their respective singles, seemingly unleashing a castaway-versus-winner showdown that will play out on YouTube and on the iTunes charts. Toscano’s sexy “Time” video shows her in gorgeous lighting, evoking a little bit of Idol judge Jennifer Lopez’s “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”

McCreery’s video for his song “I Love You This Big” is a bit more bare bones, but might give Pia a run for her money. Check it out below:
