Phillip Phillips’ long-awaited return to the stage happened as planned yesterday, with P2 rockin’ his anthem “Home” for PBS’ Independence Day celebration special, A Capitol 4th.

With two days until the American Idol Season 11 crew embark on the summer tour, Phillip proved he’s ready for action now that his kidney problems are officially a thing of the past.

At last check-in, Phillip was just beginning to pick up his guitar again after recovering from a serious kidney operation. But during his Fourth of July performance, he showed us he can still jam out on his trusty instrument.

Phillip was all smiles as he performed “Home” for the first time since winning Idol back in May, assuring us that he’ll be just fine when he hits the road on Friday!

Watch his performance below.
