The newly eliminated ‘American Idol’ star reveals she’s ready to take the judges advice and dance … but not on their show!

Pia Toscano might not have been busting out moves on the American Idol stage but she’s ready to show the world she can break it down! HollywoodLife.com spoke to the 22-year-old New York native at MTV’s The Seven on April 11 and she was ecstatic when we asked if she’d be willing to jump over to ABC and compete on Dancing with the Stars!

“I’m totally open to Dancing with the Stars,” she says. “That would be really fun because I’m a huge fan of the show so I’d definitely love to that!”

Hmm … we wonder if this has anything to do with her reportedly dating DWTS ballroom dancer Mark Ballas?

But it turns out Pia has danced her entire life — and already knows what dance she’ll master!

“The Mumba is my favorite,” she says. “But my favorite growing up was definitely jazz.”

We were shocked when Pia was kicked off Idol, but she went on to tell us that she knew she wouldn’t win.

“It’s funny … the night before I kind of had a gut feeling something just weird in my stomach that I was going to be in the bottom three,” she tells us. “I can’t explain it because I didn’t think I had a terrible performance. I thought it was pretty decent and I just had this weird feeling so I prepared myself for the bottom three but you pray that you don’t go home and so that moment for me was just kind of devastating.”

We still think she’s amazing and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next!
