Last week, it was reported that American Idol winner Phillip Phillips would be postponing his kidney surgery. Now, E! Online is reporting that Phillip won’t have to undergo surgery after all!

A source close to the 21-year-old singer told E! that Phillip instead went through some effective alternative treatments and has gotten the okay from doctors to proceed with the 45-date American Idols Live! summer tour. Surgery is still on the table if things worsen, said the insider.

The tour representative commented on Phillip’s expected participation, saying, “He will still be attending all the tour dates and is really looking forward to the launch on July 6.”

Meanwhile, Phillip “is being treated and doing well,” according to the source.

Let’s hope that he stays healthy through the two-month tour!
