    Phil Stacey is commonly known as getting 6th place on American Idol Season 6. He has a great voice. He wasn't my favorite during Season 6, but I knew he would go far. My favorite performance from him was called Where The Blacktop Ends by Keith Urban. He sung that on country night. That was one amazing performance. I also liked his performance of Blaze og Glory by Bon Jovi on Bon Jovi night. I didn't like how in the beginning he was in the bottom 3 many times. So overall, Phil has a great voice and he is talented.moreless
