All throughout American Idol, Phillip Phillips put off kidney surgery to be able to compete - but last week he finally got the much-needed procedure.

Fox 31 spoke to Phillip's father, Donnie Phillips, who is with Phillip in Los Angeles, who said although they needed to do a little more because of how long they postponed the surgery, Phillip is doing just fine.

"He's exercising real good and he's going to be jammed up. He's been waiting a while for this right here to happen and he's real excited to get back into his music and give you what he's got. It's going to be a different Phillip when you see him," said Donnie.

Donnie also thanks everyone for their kind words and prayers during Phillip's road to recovery.
