Pia Toscano & Mark Ballas Hook Up

4/9/2011 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Ballas provided comfort to "American Idol" castoff Pia Toscano last night -- on what appeared to be a date at an L.A. mall, with a special cameo by Paula Abdul!

They were both gussied up as they left Gulfstream restaurant in Century City, as Pia told us she -- like everyone else -- was surprised she got the "A.I." heave-ho.

Until Pia got the boot, they were both rehearsing and shooting their shows next to each other at CBS Television City in L.A.

It's unclear if Mark -- a known chick magnet --  or Pia made the first move.

#31, I agree. And since she's so upset that voters on AI voted for the other contestants more than her then let her cut an album and do a cover of "You Must Love Me."

Who cares? Go away, now. Tired of hearing about these "dancers".

Hey TMZ,I thought you actually screened these comments. How does an obviously demented person get away with posting a comment like #10? I expect more from you Harvey...we can get fifth from Peerez Hilton!

She's such a pretty girl, but I think it could help her career (especially if she goes into acting) if she would get the tip of her nose reduced. When a woman is almost beautiful and could get leading lady parts, a flaw like that ruins her chances more than it would for a less attractive woman who can play character roles and perhaps exudes a stronger stage presence when singing. Both Pia and Catherine McPhee are so talented, but I believe both could use some rhinoplasty because (1) neither exudes a strong stage presence and personality, although they are pleasant people; (2) both are beautiful except for their noses. Too pretty for character roles -- not pretty or at least distinctive enough in appearance for leading lady roles. The plainer women who get leading lady roles are usually very good actresses who have a strong screen presence. If one doesn't have those, one needs as much beauty as possible. A narrow nose even with a slight hook or a bit roman more photogenic than a fat nose.

Killer voice but zero personality! This is exactly why she got the boot so early.

She has the personality of a gnat. She sounds like a dingbat and rude in that interaction with the paps.

Pia, lesson #1 - you're not A-list enough to act like a jerk and ignore questions from the paps. Sites like TMZ and PEREZ will treat you nicely and give your career a boost -- IF you are nice to them.. if not, then they will make you look terrible.

This girl has no personality and no stage presence. She has a great voice, but she doesn't have an ounce of "star quality". She seems like an airhead and she's just so boring.

She is pretty and she does have a good voice, but you won't make it in the singing business if you can not emote..and interact with the audience..

@Moonbeam...what's with the analytical novel and her need to get rhinoplasty? Just weird. critical, yet the girl is just getting into the industry. Ever consider that maybe she's not all that experienced when it comes to unexpected interviews. Perhaps you're confusing her 'jerkness' with shyness. Sure hope you're not a teacher, mentor or parent...your critical and rude remarks would make any child grow up with insecurities.

What a cute couple!

Begging, false promises, and lack of personality are a tough combo when you are a Diva in training.

People are beaten down by that same tired Celine Dion wannabe voice that AI spits out every year. She sings well, but every decent lounge in America has a Pia singing in it.
