Phillip Phillips Surprised At News Of DeAndre Brackensick And Jessica Sanchez Romance

August 10, 2012 06:00 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

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.”

Did you see the whole DeAndre-Jessica romance coming, or were you just as surprised as Phillip Phillips when you heard the big news? Do you think the two singers make a good couple? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

    Jessica has met all Deandre family members, and both set of parents support their relationship. So, what’s there not to love about this beautiful couple? I say enjoy it when it comes your way, because having a balance life, is important, you know.

    Considering Phillip slept with Jessica during their time on Idol it’s no wonder he’s shocked about it.

    Jessica and DeAnn?

    DeAnn is just an gold-digger opportunist.This is a guy that craves for limelight but to stay that way he needs to cling to someone popular.In a way that DeAnn is wise because he knows that after Idol he is like others who are no longer heard of.

    Jessica is a boy wondergirl…if you know what that means.Never run out of boys as what some people who know her said.

    Most of those who approve the romance are Brackensick fans.They know that their boy’s future is dim.But if he was big like Zayn Malik, Beiber (granting he has no Selena)or even Colton, they won’t approve the romanceWe know what happened when her photo with Malik appeared on Internet.Many hated it.

    Many of the Blujays PRETEND to like it because they like her or else she won’t reTweet, Follow them on Twiter especially most of her fans are from celebrity craze country Philippines.

    I think that this is just puppy love. It pretty obvious that Deane is just in it for the ride. I still the he is gay and will just break Jessica’s heart. That will be very sad. I hope Jessica will not invest all of her feelings because it’s not going anywhere. Just finish the tour and move on with each others career. Please don’t say I’m anti-gay. I have gay friends but they know their true colors and are honest.
