Phillip Phillips Speaks Publicly About His Girlfriend

Last night, America got its first look at look at Phillip Phillips’ girlfriend when the American Idol cameras panned over to the brunette cutie sitting in the audience.

Although Phillip’s relationship status isn’t news to the most ardent Idol fans, it was surprising to finally see her in the flesh! The yet-to-be-named girlfriend is reportedly uber-supportive of Phillip’s musical ambitions.

“She’s really proud of me getting out there and pursuing my dream and everything, she supports me all the way,” Phillip told Hollywood Life. Well, we wouldn’t expect any less!

While some wondered if the girlfriend reveal would affect the way the female demographic voted this week, Phil fans can breathe easy. Idol’s resident heartthrob was declared safe in tonight’s vote, so he’s sailing through to the Top 4.
