Stevie Nicks: Idol Hopeful Phil Phillips Is "Gorgeous"
Women across the country are crushing on American Idol hopeful Phil Phillips, and Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks is no exception.
Mentoring the top 9 contestants on Wednesday's Idol performance show, Nicks, 63, took a special liking to the 21-year-old crooner from Leesburg, Ga. during their one-on-one rehearsal session.
"Had it been you, me and [fellow Fleetwood Mac singer Lindsey Buckingham] in 1975, Mick Fleetwood would have asked all three of us to be part of Fleetwood Mac. You're that good," Nicks told Phillips, who belted out Jonny Lang's "Still Rainin,'" and earned a standing ovation from Idol judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson.
Nicks wasn't just enamored by his vocal talents. "I think he's going to be very famous, and I think because he has a certain magic, you cannot deny it," she said of Phillips. "Last but not least, he's gorgeous."
Wednesday's performance round was one for the Idol record books, as the trio of judges gave four other standing ovations to contestants Heejun Han, Elise Testone, Joshua Ledet and DeAndre Brackensick.
"[Tonight] was a magical mystery tour of over-the-top talent and emotion," Aerosmith's Tyler noted.
