Phillip Phillips upstaged by Ryan Seacrest's girlfriend Julianne Hough on 'American Idol'

Phillip Phillips singing the Dave Matthews Band's "The Stone" as the "American Idol" finalists pick what they want for their second song tonight.

He sounds a bit off-key to me and it's just seems odd; not a big fan of the song or him, but I am sure he did exactly what he wanted to.

"Very entertaining, very off the wall," says Steven Tyler, "typical Phillip Phillips."

Jennifer Lopez thought it was "too artsy," tells him to pick better songs if he wants to win.

Randy Jackson says "you showed your true colors once again," loved his artistic take on it.

Whoa -- Ryan Seacrest talks about his girlfriend, Julianne Hough, says she saw Phillips and "I thought I heard her say 'yummy!'" They then show her off-stage, looking surprised and laughing.

Hmmm, that's a first on the show; in 11 seasons of watching I don't remember him ever talking about anyone he was dating, that I can remember, let alone shown someone....
