'American Idol': Colton Dixon and Skylar Laine clear up dating rumors

Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon's chemistry-filled duet of "Islands in the Stream" on Top 8's '80s-themed performance night didn't do much to dispel rumors that the "American Idol" finalists are dating, despite the fact that they tried to shoot down the gossip in a backstage interview.Ryan Seacrest hinting at a little something something didn't help either. After the show, both Laine and Dixon reiterate to Zap2it that there is nothing going on between them."Twitter, Twitter, Twitter. You're sooooo funny," says Laine. "I've been getting Tweets that say, like, 'Are you and Colton Dixon dating?' and I just kind of blow them off, but then Ryan comes on the stage and is like 'Oh, well that was really believable.'"Hence the little backstage clip. "We just cleared it up backstage," Laine continues. "It would be kind of weird. I love him, he's one of my best friends, and -- nah."Dixon agrees. "Yeah, I'm just gonna stick with... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/04/american-idol-colton-dixon-and-skylar-laine-clear-up-dating-rumors.html

'American Idol': Did Ryan Seacrest steal DeAndre Brackensick's falsetto style?

"American Idol" finalist DeAndre Brackensick is known for his buttery smooth falsetto, but he might have a little bit of competition in that department -- not in the form of one of his fellow finalists, but in the form of "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest.After Brackensick kicked off the '80s-themed Top 8 performance show with a great rendition of DeBarge's "I Like It," Seacrest decided to pay tribute to the 17-year-old contestant by impersonating his signature falsetto. (The judges raved about Brackensick's performance, but Seacrest didn't get such high marks.)Brackensick laughs when Zap2it asks him about it backstage after the show. "He kind of got me nervous because he kind of out-showed me a little bit, so I didn't want people to think anybody can do it," he jokes. Don't worry, there are no hard feelings. "It was okay," he says with a chuckle. "I loved it."... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/04/american-idol-did-ryan-seacrest-steal-deandre-brackensicks-falsetto-style.html

'American Idol' finalist Phillip Phillips on brother-in-law Ben Neil: 'My inspiration'

Fans of Phillip Phillips got an extra aww-worthy moment during "American Idol's" Top 8 performance tonight when the 21-year-old singer brought his brother-in-law Ben Neil, the person who inspired him to get into music, onstage to help him perform the Genesis hit "That's All."Phillips said he'd suggested that Ben come play with him, but he didn't know producers would actually go for it."I mentioned it, but I didn't know anything was going to happen," the singer tells Zap2it after the show. "It was all kind of a surprise to me. Me and him, we've been playing together ever since I started playing guitar, so he's my inspiration."Ben actually helped Phil pick out the Genesis song they ended up performing. Phillips says he hopes they can do it again soon, because you haven't seen half of what they can do together. "He's so amazing on the guitar too -- you didn't get to see it tonight,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/04/american-idol-finalist-phillip-phillips-on-brother-in-law-ben-neil-my-inspiration.html
