With Jessica Sanchez already in negotiations to appear on Glee Season 4, sources now say the Fox hit may not be finished with American Idol finalists:

Pia Toscano is rumored to be closing in on a guest-starring gig.

The beautiful and talented singer was given the boot fairly early on in Season 10, in what many consider to be the most shocking elimination in show history. She's done just fine for herself since, however.

Toscano both sang on Dancing with the Stars and dated hot professional Mark Ballas for awhile. She has also signed a record deal.

As for Glee? Pia has no acting experience, but an insider tells E! News she has read for a role and "they absolutely loved her. She's a huge fan of the show."

Whether or not she ends up on television, Toscano has booked a part in Grace Unplugged, an upcoming film about a struggling musician. It starts filming this month in Alabama.

"I'm so excited about my very first acting role in Grace Unplugged," Toscano says. "I'm honored to be a part of this amazing film, and my character is a reflection of me, which makes this special for me."

The reality show romance between Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas has come to an end.

The ballroom guru and the American Idol finalist - who started dating soon after the latter was shockingly eliminated from season 10 - "both decided with everything going on that they couldn't give each other what would be fair," says a source. "They mutually decided this."

Ballas is paired with Kristin Cavallari on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars and there's little doubt rumors will soon surface over whether or not she played a role in this split.

Toscano, meanwhile, will release her debut album this fall.

So You Think You Can Dance named its final four last night, and it was a tad ironic. How so?

Because Pia Toscano, a singer many believed should have advanced at least that far on season 10 of American Idol, took to the stage and belted out a version of "This Time." The track is the first off Pia's upcoming album, which is expected to hit stores some time this fall.

Based on talent alone, it's hard to imagine this CD not selling well. Check out Pia's SYTYCD performance below and then go back and relive her appearance on another reality competition, Dancing with the Stars.

This is a dream come true."

It was expected for weeks, but is now official: Pia Toscano is a recording artist.

The beloved American Idol finalist has reportedly signed with Interscope Records, according to producer Antonina Armato. He told ABC News Radio this week:

"We just finished a song with her called ‘Counterfeit,’ which is phenomenal... and we did another song for her as well.”

Toscano, of course, was eliminated from Idol far sooner than many fans believed she should have been. But things have gone well for Pia since: she's planning an album for 2011 and she has found herself a handsome new boyfriend.

The popular singer admits she got a "head start" on the CD because she was voted off the show weeks ago, but she still can't pinpoint a release date. She can share a few details, however.

"It's definitely going to be big ballads, but there's also going to be those fun up-tempo songs, those dancing songs," Pia tells People. "I feel like on the show people really only saw me in one way, and I want to show the world that I can do other things."

American Idol castoff Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas, who are dating in real life, teamed up for a beautiful routine the Dancing With the Stars results show last night.

Pia's early exit from Idol a few weeks ago shocked many, but the girl is still in high demand. Toscano's rendition of The Pretenders' "I'll Stand By You" proved why.

She nailed every note, and this time, there wasn't a panel of judges or voters critiquing her performance. Just her boyfriend Mark accompanying her on the floor:

Quite the night for the show, which also featured two efforts by New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys. The only unhappy viewer? Chris Jericho. Sorry man!
