Phillip Phillips was as surprised as anyone when the news dropped that American Idol Season 11 alums Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick are an item.

Calling into On Air With Ryan Seacrest yesterday, Phillip touched on the couple’s newfound romance and shared what’s been going on between the two behind-the-scenes during their American Idol Summer Tour.

“We were all kind of surprised,” he said. “Hopefully, it keeps working out for them. They seem like they’re in love whenever we’re around them. They’re just always holding hands or something. They seem like they love each other.”

Say it with us now… Awwww.

As for how the tour’s going so far, Phillip updated, “It’s going well. We’re just going to a new city almost every day. It’s really cool to see the different cities, for me anyway, because I’ve never been to this many places. It’s just really cool to see the different types of crowds that we play for. We’re having fun and we’re just enjoying the ride while we’re on it.”
