"[I would step in his place] any day of the week," Ace told reporters on a conference call after his elimination. "Chris and I, we have a lot in common and he’s a very good man. He’s what you want in a marriage as far as very direct and loyal guy. And [his wife] Dianna is very lucky to have him and she knows that and she’s adorable.
"And he and I really clicked," Ace continued. "We clicked from the beginning just because we kind of have the same upbringing. We’re big on family; we’re big on people. And he, just like me, can’t wait to get to the fan base. I mean, I can’t wait to shake hands with my fans and give them hugs and say thank you for getting me to number seven. But any day of the week I’d step in front of a moving train for that guy."
Wow, that's deep. I guess this Idol friendship was meant to be.
