Phillip Phillips Reacts to American Idol Victory

by at . Comments

He is the champion, our friends.

It took months of performing and over 132 million votes, but Phillip Phillips was finally crowned the American Idol winner last night. And while the outcome may have been clear to many fans for a long time now, try telling that to the 11th title-holder in show history.

American Idol Champion

"I don't really feel anything," Phillip told reporters after the show. "Its crazy I'm still a little numb from the whole situation, it's just so unreal. Did I think I was gonna win? Heck no. It's so unreal. It hasn't sunk in yet.

"It's such a blessing to have, I'm kinda ready to try and comprehend it all. After I won, I wasn't thinking about anything. I wasn't thinking about the song, I wasn't wanting to sing or anything. I just started thinking about the journey and how far all of us have come and how far we made it, it's so overwhelming. Jessica has a huge future ahead of her and we're both supportive of each other. I love playing music and I'm just a lucky guy."

phillip has a special talent that todays singers lack. He loves to play, and you can see it, hes contagious.I could listen to anything he sings over and over again.he makes amazing music, he may not have been the best singer on the show, but he was the best artist. Jessica could sing, but there are thousands of girls like her. She needs real life experience. Phillip touches my soul.

You know all of the 12 did not loose they will be hunted for signing contracts out here in California ...Phillip had something that none of the rest showed a true heart ...he never thought he would win he never acted over whelmed he just put himself out there as just Phillip ..I hate to say this but Joshua at the end let it go to his head a little that he was the best and that was fine but it showed and Jessica has a beautiful voice but so does a hundred million different woman singers out there .......Phillip did not try to be anyone special but just him self and he shined because you could see originality and a true artist ...and the main this was his heart and he shined with it ..I can no wait cause we have a brand new style in Phillip and its going to be exciting
