About American Idol 5 Contestant Katharine McPhee

   (Age 21) From Sherman Oaks, CA (Auditioned in San Francisco) Katharine was born and raised in Los Angeles. She was exposed at an early age to the joy of singing by her mother, a vocal coach. After high school, Katharine attended the prestigious Boston Conservatory for one semester and majored in musical theater.

Katharine's songs
By Fred Shuster, Music Writer

Here are the songs Katharine McPhee has sung in competition on the current season of "American Idol."
Feb. 21 "Since I Fell for You": Judge Simon Cowell said Kat's rendition of the Buddy Johnson classic, made famous by Lenny Welch in 1963, was the best of the night.

Feb. 28 "All in Love Is Fair": Judges felt the Stevie Wonder song was wrong for her, but judge Paula Abdul said Kat was "still a star."

March 7 "Think": Judges said they loved her performance of the Aretha Franklin number because Kat "had fun with it."

March 14 "Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)": Judges loved the performance on this Stevie Wonder song. Cowell compared Kat's increasing momentum to Kelly Clarkson's during "Idol's" first season.

March 21 "Come Rain, Come Shine": Judges were impressed with the singer's take of the Harold Arlen-Johnny Mercer classic from the '40s. Cowell said it was the performance that made Kat a star.

March 28 "The Voice Within": Judge Randy Jackson said Kat was too faithful to the original. Cowell said it was almost as good as Christina Aguilera's. But in the results, Kat placed in the bottom three, and Cowell said he now thought the performance wasn't as good as he'd originally thought.

April 4 "Bringing Out the Elvis": Jackson "Good job, dawg, good job" on the song Faith Hill recorded. Abdul "That is your style;  that's your niche. You look sexy, hot. You're cool." Cowell: "I don't know what to say anymore; I really don't. That song was just so peculiar."

April 11 "Who Wants to Live Forever": Abdul said Kat "made the right decision to just stand there and be glorious, with your glorious voice. I mean, it's a song that big singers like Celine (Dion) and Barbra Streisand take on; and you, Katharine McPhee, can handle it."

April 18 "Someone to Watch Over Me": Cowell said Kat made the others look like "good amateurs" on the George and Ira Gershwin standard, adding that she was the best performer of the night. Rod Stewart, the week's vocal coach, told Kat he believed she was "born to sing."

April 25 "I Have Nothing": Cowell said that by coming out and singing the song, Kat was saying she's as good as Whitney Houston. The next night, he took it back, saying that when he watched the replay, it was a good performance. McPhee was among the top two vote-getters that week.

Sorry Kat...that no one posted any replies for ya!!  So here's mine, short n' sweet.
Love ya and hope you aren't the one to leave tonite!!  Elvis week was a bad week for you b/c of the Elvis male image! I think this may've been your worst week b/c it was tough competition & you had to work harder to sing Elvis's songs.
Good Luck!  :hearts:  You'll do LOTS better next week I bet!

Kat really is a beauty & if she doesn't win Idol, maybe she'll be offered acting parts.  I think I read somewhere that she WILL have a part in some movie, but can't remember the name or details.  Will try to locate it.

I think Kat will make out fine, regardless if she wins or comes in 2nd or 3rd.
In fact, I predict that she may very well be Tommy Matola's next
wife!!!  :lol:
Remember I said that.  You may want to laminate this post  :jam:

So, if Kat wins - will it be because of her voice or her looks?

I am watching Access Hollywood and Kat stated that she had to get a shot for her allergies before she sang "My Destiny."  I hope she is feeling better tonight.  Do you any of you think Kat and Taylor have a "thing"?

I don't think so.  I recall Kat mentioning a b/f, and on one of Taylor's sites......... http://taylorhicksfan.com/index.php   ........
there are pics of him and a gal "Susi".  (but I have no idea what his relationship is with Susi)

Puddin, I don't think it's a matter of better voice.  Their voices are very DIFFERENT.  They BOTH have great voices.  Kat's connection with the audience just isn't as good as Taylor's.  I love Kat, but I believe Taylor has more to offer.
Kat will have many opportunities & I'm very happy she made it to F2 so she'll have chances...like Chris and no doubt Elliott and other finalists!

LOL.....I think the Susi thing is just someone who is a fan who made an animated gif of themselves with Taylor.  LOL.

Well maybe, Nuala.  But I found the pic in the GALLERY of photos, not in a forum. 

Today, on Extra (or Access Hollywood? not sure which..)... Taylor talked like there is someone, but he declined to say whom.  He made it clear it wasn't Kat!  However, they really ARE a cute couple!  Cool is they would strike up a "thing", huh?  :xxx

Susi belongs to www.taylorhicksfan.com.  She is one of the main people there, but I do not think she and Taylor have a thing.  It would be great to learn more about Taylor since he is the AI.  Here is a cute pic of Taylor and Kat.
