When asked by the Orlando Sentinel about whether he’s heard “Home” on the Olympics coverage yet, Phillip said, “I’ve heard a lot about it, but I’ve hardly watched any of the Olympics. It’s an honor for them to use that song, and I’m so proud of it and how well it has done.”
To be fair, Phillip is in the middle of the whirlwind American Idols Live! summer tour, so it’s understandable why he might not get to see the girls in action. But he did take some time out of his busy schedule to tweet his congratulations to the team.
“Congrats to the US Female Olympic team for the Gold Medal victory last night!!” hewrote yesterday beforeaddressing the ladies directly, saying, “Congrats on all your success guys! OHH YEAHH!”
