‘American Idol’: Skylar Laine talks Colton Dixon romance rumors

They are not dating

Mrs Carter: When country and indie rock meet, do sparks fly?

Ryan Seacrest loves to stir the pot when he’s on the ‘American Idol’ stage and last night he got fans so excited about a possible romance brewing between indie rocker Colton Dixon and country singer Skylar Laine.

When Colton and Skylar sang the Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers duet ‘Island’s in the Stream’ you could see that there was some sort of chemistry between these two singers, now whether or not that was friendship or romance – well that remains to be seen, but if ‘Idol’ fans have their way these two would be dating.

Before last night fans have been speculating that Colton and Skylar were a couple and when Ryan tried to get the pair to admit to the rumors, they tried to deny it.  The problem was, no one was buying it.

After the show, E! News caught up with Skylar and asked her straight out if the Twitter rumors are true and if she is indeed dating Colton.  She said; “Twitter is sooo funny.  I’ve been getting a lot of tweets that ask, ‘Are you and Colton Dixon dating?’ and I just  kind of blow it off, but then Ryan comes onstage and says, ‘Well that was real believable!’ We just cleared it up backstage. Me and Colton are not dating, that would be kind of weird. Colton is one of my best friends!”

Skylar also posted a message on her Twitter account about her friendship with Colton for those that still had questions.  She said; “Had so much fun with the duet tonight!! Lovin’ the new hair and the fact we cleared up rumors haha!” and “we are honestly just really good friends.”

The best relationships start out as good friendships, so it’s always possible for the friendship between Skylar and Colton to change over time into something more romantic.  Only time will tell.
