American Idol fans are often treated to sickeningly sweet romances between their favorite cast members. This past season, the hot couple was Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick, two Idol finalists who announced their relationship status via Twitter last month. Season champ Phillip Phillips later confessed to having no clue about the romance. We can’t blame him!
For the most part, Idol contestants Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick were able to keep their budding romance under wraps. There was some flirting, but not necessarily enough to suggest that the two would later become the new hot Idol couple. If we couldn’t guess at the couple’s future while watching them onscreen, it’s okay, because winner Phillip Phillips was every bit as surprised as the American Idol viewers — and he had full access to everything behind the scenes!
Chatting with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on the radio, Phillips admitted that he and his fellow contestants were “all kind of surprised” when they heard the big news about DeAndre and Jessica. Now though, it’s pretty clear that the two are dating. “They seem like they’re in love. When we’re around them, they’re always just holding hands or something, so they seem like they love each other.”
Like most American Idol fans, Phillip Phillips fully approves of DeAndre and Jessica’s relationship. He told Ryan Seacrest that he wishes only the best for the two, adding, “Hopefully it keeps working out for them.”
