American Idol is all done and dusted for another season but it doesn’t mean people have stopped talking about it, especially since the two finalists smooched on stage. However, both winner Scott McCreery and runner up Lauren Alaina, have stated that they are just friends.
The couple were watched by some 30 million viewers as they kissed each during the finale of American Idol and Lauren teased before the show, “might be my boyfriend.” Yet she has since changed her tune, “We’re not dating, everyone, we’re just friends” admitted Lauren.
Scotty also dismissed the rumours, claiming that the two are more like brother and sister, “Me and her, it’s more of a brother-sister thing,” said McCreery. He then added, “She told me before the show she was gonna do that as kind of like a joke. She’s a character, but she’s lovely. Really, we’re close friends. I met her Day One of Hollywood Week, and we were schoolmates through this whole experience. She’s great.”
