The last few weeks, a lot of people have been singing “Casey and Haley sitting in a tree... K-I-S-S-I-N-G...”  The onstage chemistry between recently ousted finalist Casey Abrams and his frequent duet partner Haley Reinhart is pretty hard to deny. But today, Casey finally addressed the hard-core Casey/Haley shipping. He was quick to squash the rumors, telling Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show that he and Haley are just friends.

Ryan asked Casey about the final moment on last night’s results episode, when Casey looked into Haley’s eyes during the show’s closing. It certainly looked like there wasn’t something there between the two growling crooners. Casey said, “That look was...’Hey, I’m going to miss you. And I’m gonna miss doing some jazzy duets with you.’ So that’s basically all that was.”

Ryan shot back, “So was it, ‘Hey, I’m going to miss you, and text you and hang out with you this weekend,’ miss you? Or ‘Hey, I’m going to miss singing with you’ miss you.”

Casey only laughed and replied, “The ‘singing with you.’ And we like chilling and, it’s fun. I like hanging out with her. She’s got the same sense of humor, so, you know, it’s like the perfect combination of everything.”

Hmmm, we believe Casey, but we also think he might be crushing a little on his “friend,” Haley. Who knows? Maybe love is still in the stars for these two...
