Phillip Phillips of 'American Idol'
Hometown: Leesburg, GA
Notable For: I IDed Phillip Phillips as the season's favorite after the premiere episode, because he's a white dude who plays the guitar, plus his family works in the pawn shop biz and America is gaga about pawn shops. Of course, Phil-Phil has a little problem: Without his guitar, he's cringe-worthy. He has a hard time holding a melody or figuring out what to do with his arms, legs and head. With the guitar, he's like a rawer Dave Matthews. As long as he plays the guitar, Phil-Phil sticks around. The minute he can't? He could be gone.
