American Idol 2012 Phillip Phillips called brilliant after ignoring mentor advice, video below. Surprise, surprise- Phillip Phillips blew away the crowd and the judges on American Idol tonight. He did so by ignoring advice from the show’s celebrity mentors.

The singer was advised by Interscope head-honcho Jimmy Iovine and guest mentor, rapper Diddy to hang up his guitar, while fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger told the former pawn star worker to stop wearing gray. So what did he do? He did both things he was told not to!

Phillips’ threw the warnings out of the window and sang his heart out on Billy Joel‘s “Movin Out,” and was called brilliant by all of the judges for doing so. Like us on Facebook by clicking here. Follow us on Twitter by clicking here.
