So who else thought Alex Kinsey of X Factor’s darling duet Alex & Sierra was totally going to pop the big question during the December 18 Live Show? That whole part where he turned to girlfriend Sierra Deaton at the end of their final song and said he had something to tell her? Yeah, that had proposal written all over it.

But Sierra knew best. “We’re on the same page with that, so I knew he wasn’t [going to propose,” the 22-year-old tells Hollywood Life before admitting she was still nervous to hear what he might have to discuss on national television. “I was just freaking out because I was like, ‘What are you going to say to me right now?’”

Of course, we now know Alex, also 22, just wanted to sing the praises of his beloved gal pal and duet partner, telling her “Thank you for enjoying this with me ... I wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you for doing this with me.” Yep, so they’re the cutest.

As the two prepared for the December 19 grand finale, Alex admits he’s been under pressure to get down on one knee.

“We went into the first audition with people [saying], ‘If you guys make it to the finale, you gotta propose,’” he says. “That’s what I read on Twitter, but that was never part of our game plan. That would also look like we’re trying to get votes.”

Well, not if you do it after you’ve claimed the Season 3 title...which they did end up winning but, unfortunately for the true romantics in the audience, Alex didn’t make the night any more memorable by adding a proposal to the mix. Ah well! There’s plenty of time for that.
