Well, it happened, folks.
“American Idol” cast-off Pia Toscano performed on “Dancing With the Stars”‘ results show on Tuesday, Apr. 26. It’s the first time ever a contestant from “Idol’s” current season has performed on “DWTS.” Could it be because Pia is dating pro Mark Ballas? Why, of course!
Pia performed her stand-out “Idol” song — “I’ll Stand By You” as Mark danced with Karina Smirnoff. Yes, the producers decided to place shots of Pia singing side-by-side with shots of Mark dancing. How romantic!
We need to point out how uncomfortable it was having Mark and Pia stand with their arms around each other awkwardly before a commercial break while Karina stood two feet away from them… all by herself. It was like reliving prom all over again. Thanks for the memories, ABC!
Pia sounded great and proved once again how wrong America was for voting her off “Idol” so early. Did you hear that last note?! Flawless. As to her early exit, Pia says, “Everything happens for a reason. I’m in a good place now.”
Of course, being the gracious host that he is, Tom Bergeron didn’t come right out and ask Pia if she is dating Mark. Instead, he asked if Mark is a good kisser. Pia’s answer? “He’s a wonderful person.” All together now:
What did you think of Pia’s performance, Zappers?
