"Me and Colton aren't dating!" Laine, 18, told Us Weekly backstage after the show. Though Idol host Ryan Seacrest played into Twitter rumors of a romance, commenting on their chemistry after the performance, Laine insists that dating her competitor would be "kind of weird."

"I love him. He's one of my best friends and I…nah!" says Laine of 20-year-old Dixon. "Not that he isn't a cutie! Of course he's a cutie!"
