…And the hookup rumors begin. Were Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery more than just friends on American Idol?
They definitely have some chemistry and after competing side by side throughout the entire season, they finally addressed rumors of a hookup last night.
When Alaina was first asked about their relationship, she threw reporters off by telling them Scotty would answer instead for them.
Scotty was asked "Lauren said to ask you about whether or not you are dating", to which he replied, "She's a character isn't she? She really is.
“No, we're just really close friends. I met her day one of Hollywood week and we've grown really tight over the weeks because we've gone to school together, but I don't know about the dating part."
So why would Alaina hint at a relationship? According to Scotty, it’s just her “being funny”. Or she has a massive crush and is trying to tell you something.
Scotty was named the season 10 American Idol winner after a record 122 million viewer votes. Speaking about plans for his debut album, MCCreery said, "I want to get some good songs. It's all about the songs after this. American Idol is a platform and helping us out and start our jobs.”
Lauren might not have gone home the ultimate winner, but she put it best when she told Hollyscoop: "I come from a small town, and I've come a long way."
Did you watch Idol last night? Who were you rooting for?
