American Idol: Is Diana DeGarmo Dating Ace Young?

Random news of the day- former American Idol contestants Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo are dating. Oh and they have been for over a year.

The season three runner-up didn’t meet Young via American Idol, in fact the pair met on set long after both of their times on American Idol. The pair met while starring in the Broadway classic “Hair” in 2010. The pair almost immediately began dating.

“I was already interested in her as a person before I got to see her without clothe on,” he jokingly told PEOPLE. “But that sealed the deal.”

The pair reside together and have been spotted at a number of events together. No one ever questioned the romance because they always assume they are just friends from American Idol (even though they appeared on different seasons).

Not only do they live together, but they write songs together, too. DeGarmo, Young and a few friends write songs as All Access. They even received a Grammy nomination for co-writing Daughtry’s “It’s Not Over.”
