Phillip Phillips is the hottest thing in pop music right now, having won the 'American Idol' Season 11 crown on Wednesday night (May 23). The first thing he did when he broke down and stopped singing his coronation song 'Home?' He walked into the crowd to hug his family.
Turns out the Phillips family is making a bigger change to their dynamic by selling the family business, which is a pawn shop.
Phillip Phillips' first single 'Home' is No. 1 on iTunes and he earned a standing "O" from the judges when he performed it on 'American Idol.' It also helped him win the Season 11 crown. But turns out Phillips isn't in love with the song, simply because he'd prefer to perform songs he wrote. So no, he's not dissing his first hit. As if.
Who will win 'American Idol' this season? It's down to the wire now, with only Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez left in the competition for Season 11. The youngsters -- Phillips will turn 22 on Sept. 20 while Sanchez won't even be 17 until August 2012 -- have very differing styles when it comes to vocal performances, making America's decision that much more difficult. So, will rockin' guitarist Phillip Phillips win the title of 'American Idol' this year, or will pint-sized diva Jessica Sanchez be crowned the victor of Season 11?
On tonight's (May 22) pentultimate episode of Season 11 of 'American Idol,' Phillip Phillips won the coin toss, so he chose to perform after the lovely diva Jessica Sanchez. Phillips had to perform three songs: one selected by producer Simon Fuller, a repeat of a song from earlier in the season and his own single.
Phillip Phillips got great news on last night's (May 17) 'American Idol.' He is a finalist, going up against Jessica Sanchez next week for the title from Season 11. However, the artsy and uber talented singer / guitarist, beloved by the ladies, is also faced with some bad news, too. His doctor is urging him to get emergency surgery. But Phillips is bravely (and riskily) putting it off until after the finale.
Round three of 'American Idol' tonight (May 16) was definitely the redemption round for Phillip Phillips. Mentor Jimmy Iovine chose Bob Seger’s 'We’ve Got Tonight' as way of appeasing Phillips' female and male fans, and as a way of getting him to sing a melody that shouldn’t be messed with. It turns out, Iovine made a great choice.
