Will Jessica Sanchez win by default? Her opponent for the "American Idol" Season 11 title, Phil Phillips, has a kidney condition that has slowing him down since March. Doctors said that he needs to go under the knife to stop the pain he's been experiencing recently.
According to TMZ
, a doctor was on standby during his entire homecoming in Georgia because the singer was not eating and looked weak.
He's been suffering from the pain but he still chose to continue competing so he had a stent, or a tube inserted in a blockage from a vessel, to keep him going temporarily. Since things aren't doing better, he had to undergo surgery ASAP.
But being the trooper that he is, Phil will go through his condition, sing and compete (and hopefully win), and get to the hospital immediately. Recovery will take him up to 6 weeks. His sickness is actually affecting his singing because his medications cause dry mouth.
Oh no! What can happen to the epic finale? What do you think Jessica has to say about this issue? Do you think Phil can hold on until the finals? Comment below!
