Phillip Phillips on American Idol 2012

Easy come, easy go. FOX has announced that Phillip Phillips is now off the roster for their New Year’s special program as previously planned and will not be performing due to a schedule conflict. No word on just what that conflict was but it was big enough to keep Phillips off a huge stage in front of a lot of viewers as his single “Home” continues to sell incredibly well.

Filling in for Phillips will be X Factor USA winner Tate Stevens. Stevens will take Phillips’ place and perform on December 31st alongside Lifehouse and Carmen Electra. I’m tempted in part to watch just to find out what Carmen Electra will be performing.

Now that Phillip is off the schedule for FOX will you be sticking with them or heading over to watch Ryan Seacrest’s hosting duties elsewhere?
