'Idol' Champ Phillip Phillips Celebrates His Win with a $25k SURPRISE!
"American Idol" champ Phillip Phillips is celebrating his win by PARTYING LIKE A ROCK STAR IN VEGAS ... at least that's what he should be doing, but instead he's hanging out with his parents and giving them his brand new car!
Sources tell TMZ ... the brand new 2013 Ford Fusion (valued at $25,000) Phillip was given for winning the competition will actually be a gift to his parents ... because he's perfectly happy driving his 2001 Ford Ranger truck (see below) and refuses to give it up.
In fact, we're told Phillip wasn't even tempted to use the new car for himself.
Best. Son. Ever.
I like him even more now, if that's even possible.

Seriously, that is such a sweet and Philliip Phillips type of thing to do.
As I have said a bunch of times ... this young man is just nice. He seems surprisingly unspoiled.
BTW ... I believe the other car went to his brother-in-law ... he had a choice of whom to give it to ... someone who helped him.
Both Final 2 contestants got to choose their giveaway designee and then got cars of their own.
There was another article linked under the one Critical posted and Phillips surgery is Tuesday, day after tomorrow. One of the AI bigwigs has offered his mansion to Phillip and his family during his period of recovery and recuperation. Let's all add some extra prayers for him, his family and the docs and nurses.
That duet of Bad Moon Rising with Fogerty was great!
