Paul McDonald of American Idol, Nikki Reed of Twilight Fame Dating

Nikki Reed of Twilight fame and Paul McDonald of American Idol are now dating according to OK! Magazine.

OK! magazine is saying that Paul McDonald and Nikki Reed are dating. With the Twilight fans on his side, McDonald may go further on American Idol than expected.

It looked like he would certainly be in the bottom three last night, but apparently his Twilight connection kept him safe for at least one more week.

As the article states Peter Facinelli, another Twilight star is urging voters to vote for Paul McDonald. Facinelli has 1.8 million followers on Twitter, so it may explain why McDonald keeps hanging around on American Idol.

There are reports online that Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart, are spending a lot of time together, when they have down time from their busy schedule.
