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?

He is a natural. He was born with a tremendous gift, it emanates from him. I agree with Phillip's father when he said his talent deserves to be shared with the world. In my opinion a more accurate comparision would be John Mayer and it's going to take someone on that level to be better than this young man.

I believe you have it wrong here. Phillip is very talented and we will be hearing more from him. He has a heart of gold and his music comes from within.

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.
