American Idol likes to say they help make dreams come true, but according to Phillip Phillips, winning the show can be a real nightmare. But his suit could lead to real change for reality competitions.
Phillips filed a complaint with the California Labor Commissioner claiming 19 Entertainment, the producers behind American Idol, violated the state’s Talent Agencies Act.
Phillips’ return to the Fresh studio this week comes with more good news; the release of his sophomore album “Behind The Light,” on May 19th.
“I’m scared to death, it’s very nerve-racking, you don’t want to screw it up. It’s all kinds of terrifying but I’m so proud of the album already after hearing all the songs and how they got mixed and whatnot. I’m so proud of them but it’s not just me who it matters to,” said Phillips.
Radio.com hopped on the phone with him to talk about shedding his folk sound in favor or rock, vocal lilting and what all this touring has taught him about putting on a live show.
The clip features live footage of his performance from the Alaska State Fair, with not only shots of his devoted crowd, who came out even in the rain, but the snow covered tops of the Chugach Mountains and the green, green grass of its valley below.
Phillip Phillips is headed “Home” mid-tour due to ongoing health problems. Following doctor’s orders, the American Idol announced Monday (May 6) that he is cancelling the remaining nine dates of his current college tour.
Phillip Phillips only released his debut album, The World From the Side of the Moon, four months ago, but he’s already thinking about its follow-up.
