American Idol’s Pia Toscano, who was voted off in one of the most shocking elimination results show last week, sat down for a interview with Ellen DeGeneres for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which will air on Thursday (April 14).
Pia takes the stage to perform “All In Love Is Fair”. Ellen confesses she is one of Pia’s fans and hopes her elimination showed America no one is really safe on Idol. Pia hopes to build a career in music as many doors continue to open for the Idol cast off.
Finally, Ellen asks Pia about her rumored new boyfriend, Dancing With The Stars pro ballroom dancer Mark Ballas. Pia laughs, but claims they are just friends and she is really focused on her music right now. Yeah, right!
Ellen: You have the most beautiful voice…I hope everybody is looking at this going, we got to vote for people because I think that people thought you had it made…I think a lot of people thought she’s set. She has a great voice but I think you are going to have a career. You have such a beautiful voice and now you have a very handsome boyfriend, I understand.
Ellen: How is that going?
Pia: I’m really just focusing right now on my music.
Ellen: That’s a good answer.
Pia: I just met him. He’s a very sweet guy.
Ellen: Yeah, sweet guy. It’s that guy from “DWTS” (Ellen shows photo of Mark Ballas) So you all are hanging out. That’s great.
Pia: We’re just friends.
Ellen: Uh huh, whatever…
