Phillip Phillips: Very Early American Idol Favorite!

by at . Comments

Granted, it's early. It's very, very, very early.

There's probably a better chance that American Idol viewers never hear from Phillip Phillips again than there is that this southern pawn shop worker goes on to win season 11. But that doesn't mean the aspiring crooner doesn't deserve a shout-out today, as she stood above all others in Savannah on last night's premiere audition episode.

Watch below as Phillips wows the panel with two songs, first a unique take on "Superstition" and then a version of "Thriller." Anyone else reminded here of Casey Abrams?

My 17 month old daughter made me rewind his audition song thriller 20 times and asks to watch it every morning. I think he will win this year based upon being able to connect even with a baby!!

I don't see anything in common with Crazy Casey Abrams but his unique renditions did remind me of David Cook. He was very talented!

MY BAD. THE POST WAS FOR THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE, ABOUT KATHERINE HEIGL. PERTAINING TO "AMERICAN IDOL," I WISH IT WOULD BE CANCELLED, ALONG WITH ALL THE OTHER TALENT SHOWS AND REALITY NONSENSE. SCRIPTED SHOWS, ARE MUCH BETTER.

ANOTHER EGOTISTICAL ACTRESS WHO HAD THE WORLD ON A STRING, BUT WANTED THE UNIVERSE ON A CHAIN. I HOPE SHE IS NOT ALLOWED BACK ON THE SERIES.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
