26 of 31: While he was eliminated in the top eigth during the 10th season of 'American Idol,' Paul McDonald made quite an impression on the judges, and also a 'Twilight' starlet.

While a contestant on the show, McDonald and the rest of the 'Idol' hopefuls attended the premiere of the film 'Red Riding Hood' where he met 'Twilight' actress Nikki Reed, a moment that was featured on the show. After dating for a few months, the couple announced their engagement and was married in October 2011.

In November 2012, the couple released a joint five-track EP through their independent label, Enzo and Ira Records, titled 'The Best Part.'
