paul-mcdonald-idolWhat is the plan for American Idol castoff Paul McDonald?

Even though one of my faves was eliminated last week, Paul McDonald is not letting it get him down.  This guy knows things should be easier for him here on out.  First, let’s just say he has a beautiful shoulder to listen to his woes (if there are any).  McDonald confirmed on Friday that he and Nikki Reed are dating.  Reed plays alongside Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the Twilight Saga movies.

Paul McDonald made the “official” announcement Friday morning after being eliminated the night before on American Idol.  Paul says that she is so smart and a really cool girl.  Nikki Reed, who is 22, plays a gorgeous vampire in the craze hit Twilight saga.  Paul, who is 26, hails from Nashville.  Paul appeared on Live With Regis and Kelly this morning and said that he will probably be moving out to Los Angeles and not stay in Nashville.  He had been touring on his own, trying to make a name for himself before he auditioned for American Idol.

Live’s co-host Kelly Ripa asked Paul McDonald why he always seemed so cool, calm and collected while performing on American Idol.  Paul said it was because he has been doing this a long time; however, he did manage to keep what nerves he had at bay. Paul also said that he didn’t expect to get as far as he did in the competition.  He was doing it to showcase his originality.  I would say he succeeded and got a pretty new girlfriend to boot! Not a bad deal.
