Phillip Phillips seems like he’s the most confident contestant this season on ‘American Idol,’ but he says it’s still stressful at the top!
“There was a lot of pressure,” Phillip told reporters after performances May 16. “I didn’t want to mess it up and I was so scared of messing up [the song I sang tonight] because I know so many Bob Seger songs except that one.”
In fact, he even asked producers if he could switch to one of the songs he actually knew!
“I was like, ‘Can I do this one or that one?’ and it was like, ‘Nope you gotta do this one’ and I was like, ‘Argh!'” Phillip remembered, adding, “It was a very beautiful song and it was very different from what I do so I think it came out well.”
Do you think Phillip sang his songs well enough last night to make it to the finale? Sound off below!
