I just read on People that American Idol champ, Phillip Phillips underwent eight surgeries during his run on Idol. Poor guy! His dad told People, “He’s been doing [well], but it’s just grueling hours and it’s just amazing what he’s done through the journey. Eight operations since we started American Idol … He’s hitting 50 percent, but he’s still up there swinging away.”
What a brave little man! Unbelievable! Past Idol competitors should take note! They’d tell America their sob story about how hard life is, and how everything has changed…”My porridge is too hot, my porridge is too cold…” Boo hoo! Get over it! Imagine being Phillip? That dude went through hell during competition and still came out on top. I’m really happy he won, he’s a true champ.
