Lauren Alaina and Scotty Mccreery have remained tight-lipped on speculation that they are 'together'. Lauren and Scotty, the American Idol finalists, are rumoured to be romantically involved but the latter played down talk of a relationship after winning the reality singing contest yesterday.
Rumours of a romance began to intensify after Lauren kissed the 17-year-old country sensation when he was announced as the American Idol winner on yesterday's show. Speaking to E! Online, Alaina said, "I gave him a kiss, yes, in case anyone is worried. I love Scotty". According to Parade Magazine, Lauren then deflected questions about the couple's relationship, telling reporters to ask Scotty instead. The country-singer from North Carolina remained silent on speculation, laughing off reporters' questions by saying, "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". Despite the judges favouring Alaina during Wednesday's final performances, MCCreery stormed to victory on the season ten finale receiving the majority of the record-breaking 122 million viewer votes. Speaking about his debut album, the 17-year-old 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".
'Idol' winner Scotty Mccreery will now go on tour with the show's top 11 finalists, including Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Pia Toscano and HALEY REINHART.
