Биллборд опубликовал очередной "смотр" Топ-100 песен от выходцев с АИ. Филлип засветился дважды с двумя первыми синглами.

6 "Home" - Phillip Phillips
Hot 100 Peak: No. 6 (2013)
Drew Pearson and Greg Holden had never met when their publishers arranged a one-day songwriting session. Pearson recalls, "He walked in my studio and we shook hands, talked for a few minutes and then sat down and wrote 'Home.’ I don't know if I ever told him, but after he sang the demo I secretly wanted Greg to take the song. He said in the session that he felt like the song was something he could sing. Then a few months later he sent me a video of him performing the song live, but that was as far as it got." Pearson’s publisher, Pulse Recording, sent "Home" to Jimmy Iovine at Interscope and that’s how it became Phillips’ finale song. To date, "Home" has topped 10 different Billboard charts, including Hot Digital Songs, Adult Contemporary, Adult Top 40 and Rock Digital Songs. It is the highest-ranked coronation song on the Idol 100. "Having a song in Billboard has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, so I had to keep pinching myself over the last year," says Pearson. "It’s been really exciting to see the song connect with so many people."

39 "Gone, Gone, Gone" – Phillip Phillips
Hot 100 Peak: No. 24 (2013)
A wise choice for the follow-up to "Home," the second single from Phillips’ album "The World from the Side of the Moon" topped eight Billboard charts, including Adult Contemporary and Triple A. The track was used on season 12 of "American Idol" as the goodbye song for departing contestants and is included in two film soundtracks: "Delivery Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
