Meet the newest “American Idol!”
Phillip Phillips was declared the music competition’s season 11 winner on Wednesday’s finale.
Phillips’ win continues the trend of men coming in first on the series, which has happened every year since season 7 in 2008.
He also managed to come out on top despite nearly being sidelined from the competition due to ongoing health problems.
After the announcement Phillip, a fan-favorite from his very first audition on the season premiere, began singing his first single “Home,” but soon became overcome with emotion and was unable to continue.
