The 22-year-old New Yorker covers 'I'll Stand by You' to accompany Mark Ballas' dance routine with Karina Smirnoff.
Pia Toscano wowed "Dancing with the Stars" audience and judges with her rendition of "I'll Stand by You". The "American Idol" alum belted out The Pretenders' ballad track on the April 26 result show of the dancing competition.
As Pia performed the 1994 single on the other side of the stage, Mark Ballas took the dance floor. The 24-year-old dancer, who is romantically linked to her, did the special routine with another "DWTS" pro dancer Karina Smirnoff.
After finishing the set, Pia had a brief chat with host Tom Bergeron. Responding to his statement that he had no idea why she was voted off the "Idol" show, the former wedding singer said, "Everything happens for a reason. I'm in a good place now, so it's all good."
Switching the subject to her rumored relationship with Mark, Tom playfully asked Pia if the "Hotwire" singer was a good kisser. To that question, Pia coyly said, "He's a wonderful person."
