It appears that love has bloomed over the summer on the American Idol concert tour.

American Idol finalists, Jessica Sanchez and DeAndre Brackensick are now an item. During a UStream video chat earlier this week, 16-year old Jessica Sanchez teased fans saying, “I got a secret and I want you guys to guess. I’ll nod if it’s no or yes.”

After a round of questions, someone finally realized that the secret was regarding Sanchez’s love-life and asked about DeAndre. “He’s my boyfriend. Love you guys. Byeeee!” Jessica joked.

DeAndre tweeted the good news saying, “Me and jessica are officially dating:) Yes jessica is my girlfriend:).”
