We hope things don’t start getting awkward backstage on American Idol. During last night’s show it was revealed that Ryan Seacrest’s lady love, Julianne Hough, is sweet on Idol fan favorite Phillip Phillips.

After Phillip rocked Dave Matthews Band’s “The Stone,” Ryan told the 21-year-old singer, “We were backstage and you ran past my girlfriend and she sighed and blushed. I think I heard her say ‘yummy’.”

In response to the flattering observation, Phillip told Us Weekly, “I ain’t complaining! She’s a gorgeous woman and Ryan’s an awesome guy so they’re an awesome match.” He added, “I think she got all giddy or something but I don't know. It was funny.”

He may not have bowled over the judges with his performances last night, but a blushing Julianne Hough is a pretty solid consolation prize!
