He said he does intend to continue through this week’s finale and give it his all, despite the complication. Season 11 co-contestant Colton Dixonpreviously stated that while P2 is “definitely hurting,” he “never lets you know about it.”
Phillip also addressed certain rumors that his family doctor observed his condition and said that he did not want him to finish the show. “No, no, no,” said the 20-year-old singer. “You can’t believe everything.”
What a relief! Phillip is still expected to undergo surgery soon after the Idol finale.
