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."

Fantastic :)Australia loves you Phillip Phillips!!!!


I think Jessica is technically the better singer, but I feel something authentic when Phillips sings. His style touches the soul. I don't think we are voting for technical singing ability, we are voting for a total personality. His renditions of Home and Volcano were very special. He brings something unique and heartfelt to the music scene.
