American Idol finalist Phillip Phillips says his kidney ailments won’t prevent him from taking part in this summer’s American Idol tour. The 21-year-old will find out tonight if he’ll be crowned American Idol.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Phillips and Jessica Sanchez have come down to the proverbial wire, and tonight (Wednesday, May 23rd) one of them will reign supreme. Phillip has a history of kidney ailments, however, that have caused some to worry whether he’s up for touring this summer–whether he wins tonight or not.
Phillips needs surgery for his kidney ailments, but already postponed that surgery until after American Idol ends. When he was asked very recently if even that surgery might prevent him from appearing on all the American Idol summer tour dates, he was adamant that it wouldn’t.
“No, no, no. I am excited for the tour,” Phillip Phillips said.
Hopefully he knows what he’s talking about because win or lose, Phillip will be a huge part of the tour this summer. Fans around the country will no doubt clamor to buy tour tickets just to see him perform.
Do you think Phillip Phillips is experiencing a giant case of wishful thinking or do you think he’ll be able to bounce back from his needed kidney surgery to join the American Idol tour?
