We get that Phillip Phillips loves Stevie Wonder. In fact, “Superstition” is one of the American Idol winner’s favorite songs to perform live.

So when radio host Brian Douglas of Ohio station Q102 asked Phillip who he thinks should judge Idol, the singer named the soul legend as his top pick.

“I said Stevie Wonder, because it wouldn’t be about looks or anything,” explained Phillip. “It’s about the music, and he’s a genius.”

And what about confirmed judge Mariah Carey? “She’s an amazing singer,” Phillip said. “I’m curious to see how she’s gonna judge though, to see if she’s gonna be mean or very nice.”

We’re curious to find out too!
