Caleb Johnson & Jena Irene Go To Prom Together
During the season of American Idol, Jena Irene asked Caleb Johnson to prom, and the big night is finally here!
Caleb, 23, and Jena, 17, stopped by HollywoodLife.com‘s NYC offices on May 27, 2014 to tell us all about it, just one day before the actual prom. They hadn’t picked out their outfits yet, but Jena said they’ll put on their “nice tuxedos and prom dress, and then we’re just gonna walk in and have a good night.”
But should Caleb be worried that Jena will ditch him for another date? He just might because she’s crushing on One Direction‘s Harry Styles!
“Harry, come to my prom,” Jena asked into our cameras (watch above). “I’m just kidding. I have the American Idol as my date!”
Caleb & Jena Reveal Their Celebrity Crushes
Just because Jena was joking about taking Harry to prom, doesn’t mean he’s not on her radar! Jena joked around, telling Harry, “You’re beautiful. Don’t ever forget it.” We love her sense of humor!
Caleb also revealed his celebrity crush — Demi Lovato! So did he get to flirt with her when she performed on the finale? WATCH the hilarious interview (above) to find out, but we know that he definitely thinks highly of her!
“I actually was really attracted to Demi when she came on the show,” Caleb said. “She’s really beautiful and she’s got an incredible voice — it’s a powerful voice.”
We would have to agree, and we also love the powerful voices on the American Idol duo and are crossing our fingers for a collaboration. Nothing is set in stone yet, but would they want to? “Absolutely.”
HollywoodLifers, WATCH Caleb and Jena’s interview about and let us know if you think that Caleb and Demi would make a cute couple! What about Jena and Harry? Are you looking forward to their new music coming out soon?
