    Her dating MB seemed like a publicity stunt before hearing this – now it obviously is. For both of them really, but especially Pia. I can’t help thinking MB is gay. (and, no, there’s nothing wrong w/ that)

    This saddens me. I wonder how the other contestants feel when headlines of ‘Pia did this’ are more popular than the actual show. I’ll admit it- I like Pia. She’s good. But so is James, so is Casey, so are most of the other contestants, and they are all getting seriously undermined. I mean, to me, it’s the same as if any other contestant was under this sort of spotlight Pia is. Let the season FINISH at least before you disregard the others.

      I disagree. 19 Entertainment makes money off of AI contestants for the rest of their lives, so why shouldn’t she be allowed to work? Eliminated contestants have appeared on countless talk shows before, the only difference is that DWTS is a prime time show on a major network.

      Can’t fault the woman for trying to seize on any advantage to get ahead — good grief, look how famous people like Kendra & the Kardashians get just for buying nice breasts. Personally though, I’d rather see a return Idol appearance by the kicked-off Lauren who could really sing but wasn’t unfortunately, pageant-pretty.

  • Cameron

    I should add that this also annoys me cause no one is going to give anyone else’s singing career a chance- I wanna actually HEAR about the winner’s album this season.

      If they are that great, it won’t matter. People go on that show to get a career. Period. Gotta strike while the iron’s hot. It’s silly to turn down opportunities because “it’s not fair” to the other competitors. It’s not fair when some get more air time and sob stories and whatever else before the competition even begins. It’s not fair that they are allowed to have twitter accounts this year and were building up fan bases before proving they deserved them. But fair has nothing to do with it.

      I think it will help all of the singers. In our minds, all of the 13 finalists are good and they will all have good music careers of varying degrees. Pia’s doing this while there’s all this strong response about her singing voice and performances. And I say go for it, take it, claim it, grab it!!!!! I hope they get her album out in late spring or summer and not wait this long 6 months like other years. I’m sure she’s probably recording it now with floods of A-list producers and musicians when we’re not looking.

    Glad the Tonight Show is featuring the “losers” throughout the whole program the day after their demise, not just a quick intro….probably are exposed to a whole new audience.

    Pia on DWTS! I am beyond excited! Now if only the DWTS judges could guest judge on AI and show the Idol judges how to critique! Len even has my permission to point out Haley’s Rocky Mountains!

  • Angelica

    So happy,to see her again singing, best performer ever been in American Idole.

  • Anna

    Dansing With The Stars wiil have a lots of watchers, good for you Pia.

  • cindy

    that’s bull that Mark didn’t know that Pia would be singing and he would be dancing to it. She was in his tralier tonight. Mark is full of crap. Wish it was Adam Lambert or Carrie Underwood more than that Pia.Her 15 mins should be up soon. Sucks that Petra got elm tonight.

  • Sheri

    She is the best singer every one thought she will have enough votes the same wat happen with Daugherty in the past. But she will sing and make her new album soon any way as a matter of fact pia does not need American idol any way

  • S

    zzzz good I can wait to tune in at the last minute so I won’t have to watch or listen to this boring woman. I’m tired of people saying its teenyboppers um no its that Pia was a snooze and isn’t that great.

  • karen

    zzzzzzzz……pia who???

  • Mya

    Pia Toscano is singing.
    Mark Ballas is dancing.
    Back Street Boys/New Kids are performing as well.
    That is a full plate of entertainment. If Kendra or Chris goes home, it’ll be a perfect night.

  • Elizabeth

    More pumped about NKOTBSB performing… I was in Pia’s corner until her connection with the Boy Starved For Attention came to light…

  • Jane

    Mark Ballas sure does love comforting those dark-haired, controversially eliminated American Idol rejects! He JUST broke up with Joanna Pacitti. Dude sure didn’t look far.

  • Goldengirl

    Say what you will, but Pia has a voice out of this world. She will go far with her career and I wish her the very best.
