Seacrest interviews Jackson during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about American Idol’s season 11 winner.
I noticed during the middle of the season, no matter how harsh we judge Phillip, no matter what we say to him, no matter what Tommy Hilfiger would say to him, the drabbest color you can wear on stage is gray, he wore gray. The guy just was you couldn’t kill him, dude. He was that one, he was stealth, he stayed in there. We got it right. America always gets it right in the end. Listen all of those people will be fine. Jessica [Sanchez], Phillip, Joshua [Ledet], they’ll all have huge careers. I mean, they got giant careers ahead of them.
