Are Mark Ballas and Pia Toscano dating?

mark-ballas-pia.jpgThe nation was shocked this week when Pia Toscano was eliminated from "American Idol" -- everyone here at Zap2it thought she'd make it to the final two! Fortunately, Pia already has a record deal to console herself with -- and, perhaps, a new love.

Pia had a boyfriend from home going into the competition, but it looks like they may have split, because rumor has it she's now seeing "Dancing With The Stars" pro Mark Ballas.

ABC News reports that 22-year-old Pia asked a friend to pass her number along to 24-year-old Ballas. Word has it that they went on a date this week. We think they make a super-cute couple. Ballas is currently partnered with Disney darling Chelsea Kane on this season of "Dancing With the Stars."

Perhaps Pia will make an appearance in the "DWTS" audience?
