Are “American Idol” runner-up Lauren Alaina and this season’s champ Scotty McCreery dating? Rumors are swirling after Thursday’s finale when she planted a wet one on him amidst the falling confetti after his win was announced.
Was she caught up in the moment, or is there more to her affections? The 16-year-old from Rossville, GA, told “Entertainment Tonight,” “He might be my boyfriend … ask him.”

Lauren, who was described a “beyondo cute” by Steven Tyler (who also may have been referring to her when he said the judges found “the one”), first sang Faith Hill’s “Like We Never Loved At All,” which made judge Jennifer Lopez cry.
