"I do have such a lovely date tonight," the "To Where You Are" singer, 33, told ET of Dennings, 28. "I'm very lucky my girlfriend has joined me tonight. It's her first time hearing me sing, so I'm going to do some extra warm-ups so I don't suck."

Surely he's serenaded her at least once before, no? "I mean, we joke sing all the time," he said. "We harmonize on the radio, but no, I haven't really done [any real singing]. It always seems like a cheesy move on my part…like, 'Hey, you wanna hear me sing?'"

Both Groban and Dennings also acknowledged their relationship on Instagram, sharing pictures of themselves on the red carpet with the captions "I ship it" (hers) and "I ship it too" (his).

A source told Us the romance is fairly new — but so far, so good. "Kat and Josh recently started dating and are having a lot of fun," the insider said.
