American Idol Contestant Phillip Phillips Will Compete Despite Kidney Problems

| Filed under: HealthSurgeryReality TV

Phillip Phillips

Phillip Phillips not only has a strong voice, he has a strong tolerance for pain!

The American Idol stand out was rushed to the hospital last week because of intense abdominal pain, which was caused by a blockage from kidney stones. The singer underwent surgery to have a "stent" installed in his body to alleviate the issue, but sources say it's still incredibly painful.

Phillip isn't letting that ruin his chances of becoming a music superstar and will continue to compete in the reality competition until he gets the boot OR, better yet, is crowned this year's American Idol!

This issue definitely could not have come at a worse time for the guy, but we admire his determination and wish him the best of luck in future weeks!
