Do we still have to refer to Pia Toscano as an eliminated American Idol contestant? Because in record time, the beautiful balladeer has gone from reality show hopeful to artist in her own right. Pia appeared on last night’s Dancing With The Stars to sing “I’ll Stand By You”, and it was even lovelier than the time she performed it on Idol. And in a bit of publicity-seeking brilliance, Pia sang the tune while her alleged amour Mark Ballas danced with other DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff. Watch below.

“Several people said you should ask her about, ya know, is she dating Mark, but I’m not gonna do that,” said Tom Bergerson after her performance. “But I’m not gonna do that. So I’ll just ask, is he a good kisser?”
“He’s a wonderful person,” says Pia coyly, doing a great job of covering up her possibly staged relationship. Girl’s already a celebrity!
