American Idol Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips is truly a trooper, is he not?

Amping up for his upcoming return to the stage after an intense kidney operation, Phillip’s been recovering slowly but surely.

In his newest interview with E! Online, he gave an update on his health, saying “I'm doing good, just been recovering and just taking it easy but also pushing myself to get my strength back and just get some energy back in my system. Even the doctors are surprised how well it's coming along. They've been helping me — I just need to keep pushing myself.”

We just hope P2’s not pushing him too terribly hard! On another note, how great does he look in this video?
