Lindsay said in a Hollywood Reporter interview that she was not surprised she didn't win but when "[Ryan] told Alex he didn't win and that was a big shock for me."
Lindsay wrote in her Theatricality blog that "I was a little disappointed that I didn't win the homework assignment, but honestly I had a feeling Alex was going to win. He is larger than life in the best way, and though I feel that I, and many of the other contenders are very theatrical, Alex takes the cake. His voice is incredible, his presence is shining, and I couldn't honestly think of a better match for Idina."
They have a duet on the Glee Christmas album together (singing "Do You Hear What I Hear").
Lindsay said in an interview that her biggest competition was "Alex. I said it from day one, Alex. Come on! That voice. I can't even hit the notes that that kid can hit. I know we sat down in the rec room once, and I was like, “You want to know something funny. I think you’re my biggest competition.” And he was like, “Really? I think you're mine.” And we're like, “Aw.” That's kind of how we became friends. We kind of openly admitted that we were very terrified of each other."
Alex tweeted "I would like to take the time to say Happy Birthday to Ms. @lindsayhpearce love you girly" and Lindsay tweeted back "Love you so much. Werq."
Lindsay tweeted "@ANew92 is the biggest, best diva of all time. Can we talk about his Nikki Minaj cover and HIS SPLITS IN THE AIR?! WERQ."
Lindsay responded to @TheGleeProject's tweet about Alex being on Glee with "@TheGleeProject @ANew92 I am proud beyond words <3"

Lindsay tweeted "Happy birthday to my best friend and reigning diva, @ANew92 !! Happy birthday boobooface. I love you to death. Strut in dem heels, mama!" and he replied "@lindsayhpearce I love you sooo much!!!! Thank you hunnie" and she tweeted back "I love you more baby face! <3"
