Phillip Phillips Wins American Idol — Cries Like a Baby

I love Phillip Phillips, and he deserved the crown tonight. He’s humble, and he’s talented. He’s also adorably close to his family, who he chose to hug instead of finishing his song, which he couldn’t sing because he was crying. Watch below.

Phillip Phillips Sings “Fat Bottomed Girls” — Wins the Night

They should just hand the title to Phillip Phillips. He’s not just the best singer in the competition, he’s the best performer. To be fair, “Fat Bottomed Girls” is one of my favorite songs in history. In fact, every time I feel bad about my gigantic ass, I sing it to myself as a pep-talk. But this isn’t about me — it’s about Phillip. He’s authentic, and that’s most important. Watch below.

Colton Dixon Sings “Everything” — Awesome

I started watching this season of American Idol very late in the game, and it became immediately clear that Colton Dixon and Phillip Phillips are the front-runners. On tonight’s show, Colton Sang “Everything” by Lifehouse — and he was incredible. It’s also worth pointing out that Randy Jackson gave his first valuable comment since the show began, saying, “One of the most important things an artist can have is believability.” He’s right. It doesn’t matter what note you can hit, it matters if you’re authentic. And Colton Dixon is authentic.

Phillip Phillips Throws Away Steven Tyler’s Scarf — NO!!!!!

Here at The Dishmaster, I try to abide by the long-standing principle, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.” But today I will make an exception for Mr. Phillip Phillips, who quite possibly made the worst move in American Idol history. Allow me to explain. After Phillip Phillips’ performance, the judges commented on his grey-on-grey attire. Steven Tyler attempted to help him out by generously giving him his own scarf. So what did Phillips do with this valued possession? He threw it back into the audience to a group of screaming chicks! Excuse me!??? Doesn’t your father own a pawn shop!!!! The scarf belonged to Steven Tyler! He’s only one of the biggest legends in the history of music. He should have sold it and pocketed the money!! Who knows how long this American Idol fame will last?
