Psy suggested that the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards crowd take pictures of Phillip Phillips, and we don't blame him. What a beautiful, rugged Southern charmer he is!

The 'American Idol' winner rocked a plaid shirt and an acoustic guitar for his full-band performance of 'Home.' The crowd pretty much sang half the song for him because they knew and loved every word -- and you better believe he ate it up. Singing with a permagrin, Phillips strummed and hummed away.

Phillips' rendition of 'Home' was an extended one, featuring longer interludes of "whoa-oh-oh" than we're used to hearing on radio.

The crooner clearly felt at home onstage, and the show -- and his warm reception -- was likely a good precursor to the type of love he'll receive when he tours with John Mayer this summer.
