American Idol Auditioneer Kinda Looks Like Dave MatthewsPosted by Jake Vigliotti in Random Appearances at 7:16am on Thursday, Jan 19th, 2012
If you missed American Idol last night, there was a guy with a unique name who reminded a lot of people of a certain performer in the Dave Matthews Band.
Here is Phillip Phillips (yep, that's his name) audition: Judge for yourself here. The footwork - which shows that clearly Jennifer Lopez has never heard of Dave Matthews - certainly had some "Dave-like" moments. And his guitar playing did look like Dave. Not surprisingly, Phillips lists Dave Matthews as an influence according to an Idol gossip site
It is pretty clear that he sounded a lot better with a guitar than he did sans 6-string. We'll see if he can survive the Hollywood week of the show.
And a special note to Phillip, since I know you're out there (IP lookups FTW!), shoot me an email and I'll send you an Ants shirt you can wear during the Hollywood Week :)
