It’s the most successful American Idol winner’s first single since Kelly Clarkson and now American Idol 2012 champ Phillip Phillips’ “Home” has a video.
And it’s actually a real video. I don’t remember seeing videos for past winners, but then again, they weren’t as popular as this song has been. “Home” had shot up the charts after Phillip captured the American Idol crown in May and the song’s popularity resurfaced when it was used during the Olympics. So the release of the video is both timely and genius of producers.
The video is set up like a documentary that combines performance footage of Phillip and general everyday life footage. I’m pretty impressed. Phillip may just be poised to break the Idol curse that has plagued several of the past winners.
Here’s the video for you to enjoy:
