Remember when X Factor contestant / Creed enthusiast Vino Alan first met Khloe Kardashian, and was all, "Lamar who? Let's make lingering eye contact."

So do we, you guys. At first, Khloe seemed completely horrified by Vino's lingering touch and sprouting chintee, but it looks like times are a changin'. After three weeks of X Factor Live Shows, Vino has managed to make Khloe fall for his misunderstood charm — presumably by singing "With Arms Wide Open" at her for hours on end.

In fact, Khloe even posed for an adorable picture with Vino backstage on the set of X Factor, in which Vino looks extremely pleased with himself. Get it, buddy.

In other news, talking about Vino makes us crave Franzia.
