Lauren & Scotty: sitting in a tree?

Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina might be more than competitors on American Idol. Runner-up Alaina even hints that they might be dating.

American Idol's Lauren Alaina might have come in second on the show, but she might just be number one in winner Scotty McCreery's heart. The question everyone wants to know today: Are they dating?

Lauren & Scotty: sitting in a tree?

The questions started when Alaina kissed McCreery on the lips after he was crowned the new American Idol.

"I kissed him on the lips," Alaina told an Entertainment Tonight reporter at the Idol after party.

So, are they dating?

"He might be my boyfriend, he might not be my boyfriend," Alaina said with a coy grin.

"I'm sure those rumors are spreading, but we're just really good friends," McCreery said later. "She's a character, isn't she? We're really close friends... I don't know about the dating part. She's just being funny."

"She's such a sweetheart," he added.

Awwww, adorable. These two would make an adorable couple with their accents and "aww, shucks" personalities. And who knows? They'll be touring together this summer on the AI tour, so maybe they'll find the time to get in some smooches in between stops.

There is one thing they will do together, though: Make music.

"I hope so. We've talked about it. She's a great girl. I can't say enough nice things about her," McCreery said. "I think we sound great together so I think it would be a wise choice."

Do you think Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina would make a cute couple?
