These acts are all pretty awesome. I think I’d want to see most of them. Playing in New York City must be a dream come true for any musician. I imagine a few of these acts will bust out some sancho panza and champagne to celebrate the occasion. Will any of you be attending? Let us know below who you are most excited to see perform!
Oh no! We hate reading about the pain Phillip Phillips has been in during his run on American Idol. According to TMZ, his problems may have gotten worse as his doctor has urged him to undergo surgery as soon as the show is over. The recovery time would have his missing tour rehearsals and possibly some shows. I can see him missing some rehearsals but hopefully he’s feeling better by the time the tour kicks off this Summer.
Phillip Phillips — one of the finalists on “American Idol” — has been URGED by his personal doctor to get surgery immediately … but Phillip wants to work through the pain and the risk so he can win next week.
Multiple “Idol” sources tell us … when Phillip went back home to Georgia last Saturday … his family doctor spent almost the entire stay by his side and was alarmed by what he saw — Phillip wasn’t eating and looked horrible.
Phillip suffers from severe kidney problems and at the beginning of the competition it got so bad he had a stent put in as a temporary fix until he could have surgery. But the condition has worsened and Phillip’s doc told him he needed surgery now. Phillip said he was not going to drop out of the show so the doctor told him he ABSOLUTELY had to go under the knife immediately after the finale.
We’re told the recovery time for the surgery is at least 6 weeks.
Phillip’s condition is taking its toll — we’re told the medication causes dry mouth, and it’s had some impact on his singing.
Phillip has also missed some of the field productions that are shot for the show — including the Ford commercials. Our “Idol” sources tell us they felt that making him go on location for these shoots were just too taxing.
It’s homecoming weekend for the top 3 on Season 11 of American Idol! Phillip Phillips was not only greeted by fans at the airport when he arrived, but also gave his first interview with FOX 31 there. The celebration was a big one today and included a parade, a trip to his father’s pawn shop, and a free concert where Phillip performed Superstition, Still Rainin’, Nice and Slow, Thriller, Volcano, and Along The Watchtower. Is this a sneak peek at this setlist for the Idols Live Tour?
American Idol fans are amazing and scary during homecoming weekends. I remember when Scotty McCreery went home to Raleigh for his and it was insane. He almost needed some raleigh nc attorneys.
We just had to post this one! Last night, American Idol contestants performed two songs during a Now and Then themed Top 7. Our favorite performance of the night is definitely Phillip Phillips re-imagining himself some Usher. He took on U Got It Bad and Jennifer Lopez was right. It wasn’t just fantastic. It was sexy!
