If you are asking who is Phillip Phillips, join the club, as this 21 year old sensation stormed on the American Idol audition stage and set the standard in Savannah, Georgia. Though he was the absolute last contestant to audition, he had the judges' full attention, especially Jennifer Lopez. She fell in love with him, and who wouldn't. Phillip Phillips is adorable, seems like a sweet guy, and sings like a star. Rumor had it from the start that Phillip Phillips was in the top 42 contestants for American Idol's 11th season and he's definitely one to keep an eye on through the finish.
So who is Phillip Phillips then? Well, he grew up in Sasser and Leesburg, Georgia, working in his father's pawn shop. He described it on the show as being exciting and sometimes scary working there. Yet, the boy seems seasoned for the stage, and that's probably because he's been performing since he was 14 years old. The boy is talented too, playing the guitar, base guitar, piano and the drums. Hey, working in a pawn shop means you have access to all kinds of stuff, especially musical instruments. Phillip has been playing gigs in Albany, Georgia with his sister and a band called G&S.
Phillip's favorite bands are Dave Matthews, Tool, Johnny Lang and Mumford & Sons. You can see how Dave Matthews has rubbed off on him in his performance style, which is just so pleasing to the eye and soothing to the ear. He's a teen dream of no compare, and is going to give Justin Beiber a challenge in the hearts of teenage girls across the country before the 2012 season is through. What do you think of Phillip?
