"I met him a couple times. He seems like a nice guy, but we didn't really talk much," Phil Phillips told Us Weekly backstage after Wednesday's show of Lopez's boyfriend of five months. Still, Smart has already earned bonus points from Phillips, who sang "Give a Little More" by Maroon 5. "[Casper recently told me] 'Oh man you did really good.'"
