The stunningly talented — and just plain stunning — also-sang belted out a note-perfect rendition of the Pretenders' "I'll Stand By You" on the ABC ballroom hit's results show. "How the hell did you get kicked off?" emcee Tom Bergeron quipped, before teasing Toscano about her reported romance with pro Mark Ballas (who danced to her tune with Karina Smirnoff): "Is he a good kisser?" Pia's politic answer: "He's a wonderful person."
