(TMZ) "American Idol" contestant Phillip Phillips was taken to a medical facility yesterday morning for emergency treatment ... TMZ has learned -- and his future on the show is now in question.

Sources tell TMZ, Phillip -- the guy who always performs with a guitar on the show -- was complaining of intense pain in his abdomen ... and it seemed serious enough to sound the alarm.

Phillip's dad tells TMZ ... his son has had 5 kidney stone procedures to remove kidney stones. He says it's been a problem since October. As for performing, we're told Phillip is determined to continue on A.I. and will postpone any type of procedure ... at least until he knows the results tonight. But it's still really painful. more on this story
