A white guy with a guitar won for the fifth year in a row, but I’m totally OK with this. Phillip Phillips is the dreamiest contestant they’ve had on the show since, um, Tim Turban. (OMG REMEMBER TIM TURBAN?). Or Stefano Langone. Now THERE was a contestant worthy of being idolized. Whatever happened to HIM? Anyway. Here’s Phillip singing the swoonworthy song that won him his crown. And while I don’t think that American Idol actually creates superstars along the lines of Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood anymore, it will be nice to catch up with him at county fairs and mall openings in the years to come.
