Phillip Phillips in Seattle: Sexy Tunes and Sing-Alongs

While this is true in most cases, this argument is difficult to apply to someone like Phillip Phillips. While he was the winner of the eleventh edition of American Idol at just 21 years old, Phillip has talent as a singer and guitarist, and has avoided the obvious clichés one would expect from an assembly line designed for making money. Or, judging by what we saw on his show in Niceto, he stays away from the stereotype imposed by this type of competition. And that says a lot.Continue Reading →
