When Casey Abrams sang the final line, "you're mine," from Jay Hawkins's tune "I Put a Spell On You" to fellow contestant Haley Reinhart after being voted off of American Idol Thursday, many wondered if they were really dating.
"The touch and the look we had was just perfect," says Abrams. But their connection does not go beyond friendship, according to the booted singer.
"The friend thing works and when we sing together it just feels good," he says. "It's like a nice fitting glove."
Detailing his bond with Reinhart, the status of his health and what Jennifer Lopez said she's going to miss about him, Abrams, 20, speaks to PEOPLE.

After a night dedicated to the music of singer-songwriter Carole King, the top six contestants remaining on American Idol spoke to reporters about the pressing issues of the night.
Who's that guy? And how was Miley Cyrus?
Did Lauren Alaina know Brett, the boy she pulled up on stage to sit next to her during her rendition of "Where You Lead"? "I wanted a cute guy up there and he's an intern for American Idol," Alaina said, "They said if he looked like he enjoyed it, he can't get fired because he's not getting paid, so it just worked out. I don't even really know him!"
As for meeting her idol Miley Cyrus (producer Jimmy Iovine more-than favorably compared her to the superstar when she sang "The Climb"), Alaina said, "I love her! She's got a lot of the same, what do you call it, sense of humor? We have the same sense of humor."
