Paul and Casey also made an announcement during last night's show about the highly anticipated Idol tour!

When Paul visited the OK! offices last month after his elimination, he opened up about his budding relationship with the Twilight beauty.

“I didn’t realize who she was, so I felt bad,” he told OK! of their first meeting at the Red Riding Hood Hollywood premiere. “I sent her a message saying, ‘I didn’t realize you were a big-time actress. I’m so sorry. It was great to hang out with you.’ And then we started to hang out after that. She’s supercool.”

But as of last month, Paul had not yet read any of the Twilight books!

“I have not read any of the books or watched any of the movies,” the hunky Nashville crooner shared of the hit franchise, in which his girlfriend stars. “But I guess I am a Twilight fan because I’m dating Nikki. I told her I’d watch whenever she wants me to watch them.”

Nikki is very supportive of Paul's career and hooked him up for a collaboration with her co-star Peter Facinelli!

The Nurse Jackie star has enlisted Paul to do the soundtrack for the film!

“I’m super pumped about working with @peterfacinelli on his new movie ‘Loosies’ ” Paul Tweeted recently.

“I was telling Nikki I was looking for music for my movie,” Peter told MTV News, "and she said, ‘You should look though Paul’s stuff.’ She was a big fan of his, I heard, and I thought it really worked for my movie, so I played some tracks over it, where we had temp tracks, and it just all worked. So I reached out to Paul, I sent him the movie, and he enjoyed it a lot, and he said he wanted to be a part of it, so I was stoked.”
