American Idol might have given her the boot, but ABC’s Dancing with the Stars gave her a stage. Pia Toscano, eliminated during Top 9 Week of American Idol 2011, became the first crossover star of the season to perform on another show, much less on another network!
Last night on DWTS, Pia performed a fast-paced, high energy song… hah! I’m kidding it was another ballad, but if you were a fan of Toscano’s then you’ll definitely enjoy it. Rumored boyfriend, Mark Ballas, even does some dancing to accompany the performance of “I’ll Stand By You.” Watch Pia’s DWTS debut:
