Phillip Phillips, American Idol winner, talks about how he felt when Ryan Seacrest announced he was the winner of the season.
In an interview on Jay Leno, when asked about what his thoughts were when he was singing, “Home,” his signature song. Phillip said he was not really thinking about the song, but seeing the rest of the American Idol finalists made him realize what he went through.

In a separate interview with Ryan Seacreast, Ryan asked what his parents said to him when he went down to them crying. Phillip replied that his parents and family hugged him and said:
“We love you and we’re so proud of you.”
Phillip revealed that his parents said they knew it would happen, but Phillip said, he didn’t.
One can notice from Phillip Phillips’ expression, after the announcement, that he was totally shocked, which he freely admits whenever being interviewed.
He was humble in victory, heaping praises too on his co-competitor American Idol runner-up, Jessica Sanchez. How could anyone not love this young boy from Georgia?
When Ryan asked if his girlfriend ever got jealous, he said, she was used to it, and that “she was very supportive.” Lots of young girls out there would surely feel sad that Phillip is already taken.
