Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas have put those dating rumors to rest.

There's no rumor about it - this is a real relationship! Pia was introduced to Mark's mom and friends on a night out in Beverly Hills over the weekend.

Here's a cute photo of this adorable, smitten new couple ...

Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas are reportedly together. Romantically.

They'll definitely be together next week as the gone-too-soon American Idol outcast sings and the Dancing With the Stars pro dances on the results show!

Mark's upcoming performance set to the vocal accompaniment of his alleged new love was announced Tuesday, with Mark ever the gentleman in response.

Apart from saying calling Pia a "phenomenal vocalist," Ballas says he had little in the way of details for this rumored girlfriend's appearance next week.

He denies having anything to do with the planning, saying that he found out about it when the announcement was made on the DWTS results show.

Maybe so, but we doubt he's unhappy about it.

As for his partner in the professional sense, Mark and Chelsea Kane survived another week. He and the Disney star have looked strong thus far!

In fun celebrity couple news bringing the worlds of American Idol and Dancing With the Stars together, Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas are dating.

Pia and Mark became acquainted while shooting their respective shows and went on their first date Friday. According to reports, it was a 10!

Maybe an awesome date isn't enough to soften the blow of her stunning elimination from American Idol this week, but it can't hurt, right?

Pia was the instigator of the romance with Mark Ballas, sources say, but there was a surprise matchmaker involved who played a role in setting them up:

WWE great and current DWTS contestant Chris Jericho!

Pia and Mark both shoot American Idol and Dancing With the Stars on the same CBS Television City lot in L.A., and it turns out Pia is pretty resourceful.

She has a friend who is friends with Jericho, so Pia gave her friend a piece of paper with her number on it, who then passed it to Chris to give to Mark.

Sounds so high school, but apparently it worked out. Peeps connected with both Mark Ballas and Pia Toscano say they really hit it off. Way to go guys!
