Pia Toscano was booted from "Idol" earlier this month, but has gained a new boyfriend in "Dancing" star Mark Ballas.

Love is bringing "Dancing With the Stars" and "American Idol" together!

TMZ.com was first to report that ousted "Idol" contestant Pia Toscano will be performing on "Dancing" next week. Not only that, her new love, pro hoofer Mark Ballas, will be dancing as she performs, according to TMZ. Awwww!

During the "Dancing" results show on Tuesday night, host Tom Bergeron confirmed the news, saying that Toscano would be "performing with her close friend Mark Ballas." Such close friends that they've been seen smooching in public!

Rumors of a love connection between the two first surfaced shortly after the singer's shocking elimination on April 7. The next day, she was spotted getting very cozy with the "Dancing" pro.
