Before I started watching American idol 3/4 of the way through the season I thought Phillip Phillips was a men's Wilson Phillips tribute band. So, call me shocked when I didn't hear Hold On when I heard Phillip sing. Apparently Phillip is desperately sick. His doctor told him he needs surgery immediately and he is lucky he has made it this far without having surgery. The type of surgery that Phillip needs requires a 6 week recovery period which he obviously can't do because of the show and finale. As soon as it is over though and before the tour, Phillip is going under the knife.
