Paul McDonald and Nikki Reed – Honey – Late Late Show (VIDEO)


American Idol season 10 alum, Paul McDonald and Twilight actress, Nikki Reed may be divorced, but it doesn’t mean they still can’t be friends!

Paul has moved back to Nashville since splitting with Nikki, but he’s returned to Los Angeles for some gigs–he performed at Bootsy Bellows on Friday night to celebrate his 30th birthday.  Hours earlier, he and Nikki hit up the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson to perform “Honey” from their joint album, I’m Not Falling, released in July.

The tune has a sunny, folksy vibe and the duo sure looked happy singing it! It’s always nice when couples split and can remain friends.

In the meantime, Paul is about to embark on the recording of his first solo album, and he is funding it through…what else…a Kickstarter project! Crowdfunding has become the go to method for reality show alums, who have amassed a bit of recognition, to release music. Check out Paul’s Kickstarter campaign at this link.  The singer/songwriter’s goal is $20,000, with nearly a month left.

  1. the first verses were so low I couldn’t understand Paul but I really liked the song once it kicked in, .

    In his case, is he just using Kickstarter to gauge and generate fan support ? Cause with Nikki’s involvement, surely there’s likely no real funding issue.

    And btw, I so am happy the site’s back up !! It must have been a nightmare.

  2. Terrific performance! Their voices complement each other well. I bought the album when it first came out. It’s really, really good. And I was surprised at just how much I like Nikki’s voice. She takes the lead on a couple of the songs.

  3. Is Nikki involved with his solo project? Wasn’t the song they sang here on their pre-split release?

  4. Great song! I’ve always liked Paul’s music and voice. Didn’t know they had an album out together. Will definitely check it out!

  5. Lol I wonder if they just married for publicity? Anyways this was great. Hope to see more of them together!
