Pia Toscano sure is lucky! Even though she was eliminated two weeks ago from American Idol, she will be singing on Dancing with the Stars while her “friend” Mark Ballas performs a dance.
According to People,
Toscano will perform with professional dancer â€“ and rumored boyfriend â€“ Mark Ballas on next week’s DWTS results show, it was announced on Tuesday night’s elimination episode.
The news came as a surprise to the studio audience â€“ and even to Ballas.
“I just got told after Tom [Bergeron] announced it. We aren’t allowed to know stuff like that,” Ballas told reporters after supermodel Petra Nemcova was sent home Tuesday.
“I can’t tell you the song, but it will probably be something slow and romantic,” said Ballas, who will be dancing with fellow pro Karina Smirnoff while Toscano sings.
The performance comes on a wave of rumors that the Idol finalist and Dancing pro are dating. The two were most recently spotted together this past Monday, when Toscano attended Ballas’s concert at The Mint in Los Angeles.
While Ballas will not be joining her at the mic next week, the performance is still something he says he is “looking forward to.”
“Pia … will be amazing,” Ballas said. “She is a ridiculously amazing vocalist.”
Does anyone else find it strange that Pia was eliminated and still gets to perform on Dancing even though American Idol has yet to announce a winner? Hmmmmm?
