There's no set formula for post-'American Idol' success, but there are winners who go on to superstardom, and then there are those who fade into obscurity. It's safe to say that Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips is on the right side of that equation, having achieved double platinum status with his coronation single 'Home,' which also struck a chord during the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Phillip Phillips performed his amazing new song 'Gone, Gone, Gone' on the TODAY show last week. He also chatted with the anchors, and spoke about being proud of writing his music and lyrics on 'The World From the Side of the Moon' on a rainy morning in New York City (Nov. 27.)
After winning 'American Idol,' you'd imagine some stars may get a bit of an ego. After all, that's a pretty weighty title.
Phillip Phillips is not one of those stars. In fact, if anything, his victory has terrified him -- but motivated him to do his own thing with his debut, 'The World From the Side of the Moon,' at the same time.
Phillip Phillips, Gym Class Heroes and many more celebrities joined forces on Nov. 15 for MTV's live Restore the Shore benefit to raise money for the coastal towns of New Jersey, which were ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
'American Idol' winner Phillip Phillips' 'Home' was the soundtrack for a lot of our summer -- from its prevalence in the Olympics to its simple down home charm, it was a cozy, breezy listen and radio staple. And based on the preview snippets of Phillips' debut, 'The World From the Side of the Moon,' he's really got a knack for that.
Phillip Phillips' debut single 'Home' was one of the most successful 'American Idol' coronation songs ever. Now, the 21-year-old 'Idol' champ has unveiled a new original rock song called 'Take Me Away,' which he debuted this week during an intimate live performance.
This week, PopCrush's Top 20 Songs list has some newcomers, while others continue to hold down their usual spots with a steadfast grip.
