Katharine McPhee Makes a Deal

kat.jpgNo wonder Katharine McPhee didn't look too disappointed when Taylor Hicks was named the next "American Idol." Reality TV World says that the 22-year-old runner-up has signed a deal with Clive Davis and RCA Records.

The deal is part of a partnership with 19 Recordings Limited, "Idol" creator Simon Fuller's label. Looks like everyone's got McPheever.

The single, "My Destiny," which she performed on the last performance show, will be released on June 27. It will be paired with her much-lauded version of "Over the Rainbow."

McPhee recently told TV Guide that she is also interested in a movie career. One step at a time please! In the meantime, she has plenty to do. The American Idols Live tour kicks off on July 5. She was also recently invited to join Andrea Bocelli onstage for a series of concerts this week. -- Rachel Cericola

Katherine McPhee sang with Andrea Bocelli in LA concert and she did not do the her host justice. She sucked!!! first song was awful. but hte second one was better. she can sing, but not as good as she thinks she is.

Katherine McPhee is not only talented, beautiful, and wonderful to listen to, I strongly belileve that she should of won the A.I. contest... The young man who was named winner lends an injustice to your program. He is a clown, has not talent, and such a shame that intelligent people like Simon has to deal with accepting this... Maybe you should reconstruct your format, and do what "so you think you can dance" so smartly runs their show.... Sorry Taylor, I predict a quick fall.....

I'm glad she didn't win..Her voice hurts my ears and too pictchy..She is no Celine which she thinks she is..Her voice is not that strong which she thinks it is..She be better on Broadway or in the shower singing.....

-- 11. Posted by: Rose at June 23, 2006 5:08 PM

I think Kat Rules!!!!!!I know she should have won idol. I sware.

-- 12. Posted by: alli at June 23, 2006 5:31 PM

I think Katherine McPhee should have won 2..........she's beautiful, talented, and easy on the eyes. somewhere over the rainbow reminded me of that. shes going to do gr8 with clive and RCA. I got the McPheever!!!

What people don't realize is that most people sing pop music have voice overs. Broadway is much more difficult to sing since you have to be able to sing clearly and nicely. There aren't any voic overs in broadway. Katherine McPhee had a voice good enough for broadway while Taylor was only voted the American Idol because he spazzed out on the stage and americans felt a connection with him because he couldn't dance. He focused his energy on the dance rather than on hitting the right notes. Almost every song he sang he went flat during the biggest parts of the song. Kat sang her best when she stayed still which proves that she truly CAN sing.

Sure katherine is beautiful and has a beautiful voice,however,I find her very boring. Taylor is unique and very entertaining. But do I hope she does well.

-- 15. Posted by: Doug at June 26, 2006 3:21 PM

I am sure Kat has plenty of fans out there and I am glad for her. I am not one of them but I do not have to diss them. But I notice there are many of them who simply *hate* Taylor. I guess Kat's fans, most of them perhaps, are more emotional. I, on the other hand, love Taylor, easy going and down to earth, which is what I want to be too. Look folks, if AI were strictly a singing contest, neither Taylor nor Kat should have won, Elliot would have taken the crown. AI is a popularity contest, folks. Taylor is simply more accepted and more popular than Kat, credit goes to Kat for being more popular than 10 other finalists. There is no point in arguing who is BETTER. One thing for sure, Taylor won the popular contest. I voted for him. Now let's see the record sales. I bought his CD and will keep buying anything he puts out. I simply -like- his music, whether it is regarded by the public good or bad. Peace!

Kat's an awesome singer , Taylor's an awesome performer- they both got a record deal- I'm happy with the outcome. :)

KATHERINE ES LA MEJOR CANTANTE QUE HA SALIDO DE TODOS LOS CONCURSOS DE ESTE TIPO, DE NUEVOS TALENTOS Y SEGURAMENTE LOGRARA EL EXITO, SI LA GENTE SABE RECONOCER SU TALENTO
KATHERINE IS THE BEST SINGER EVER APPEARED IN ALL THESE KIND OF SINGING CONTESTS
VIVA KATHERINE QUE ADEMAS ES SUPERGUAPISISIMA!!!!1
LONG LIVE KATHY, BESIDES, SHE IS STRONGLY PRETTY LIKE NO ONE ELSE IN THESE KIND OF CONTESTS

Hey Katharine if you read this I really am i HUGE fan of you and Kellie Pickler and Taylor Hicks. In the beggining of American Idol I really didnt like it but when you started to sing I loved it. And what i love about you is that you made American Idol a better place thats so true. I really wish you won!!! Love truely Carlie

-- 21. Posted by: Carlie at July 16, 2006 8:40 AM

Kat should of won AI- hands down- this contest was not based on talent it was a joke contest and vote for the worst.com. That is the only reason Taylor won. Kat & Chris should of been the final 2[ with Kat winning of course ]Kat is a star! She is stunning & sweet & talented! I will buy any album she puts out! I wish her all the best because she deserves it!!

-- 22. Posted by: kittykat at July 18, 2006 11:45 AM

your all wacked, mcphee is a spoiled daddys little girl. she was a real snott on an interview she did on today show. she can't sing that good either. looks may get you so far then talent has to take over, her looks only get her to first base, then she opens her little spoiled mouth and shows her lack of talent, she blows, american idol is a fixed show anyway, why else would they let you vote as many times as you can for 2 hours, real contest huh! yeah right, nothing but more garbage on a mindless tv.

-- 23. Posted by: josephuss at July 21, 2006 4:02 PM

Kathrine,
Wanted to say your the best and you can sing and dont let people say anything diffrent. Cant wait to get your full cd soon. Good luck and your very beutiful and talented. Love your friend always,
jason

Everyone keeps going on about Kats version of Somewhere over the Rainbow, until you have heard Eva Cassidy sing this song you have not heard it done correctly...in my humble opinion.

-- 25. Posted by: Dot at August 2, 2006 6:16 PM

Okay, people keep spelling her name wrong, It's Katharine McPhee not Katherine McPhee. And she did a beautiful duet with Andrea both on tour and on the JC Penny Jam. They sing amazingly together. Kat is just so gifted and talented, she has the whole package. She has so much ahead of her!

-- 26. Posted by: Megan at August 30, 2006 11:23 PM

Katharine is enormously talented and has a killer body and is drop dead gorgeous. What more could you ask for?

-- 27. Posted by: JOrdan at December 27, 2006 12:33 AM

Katharine McPhee is a great singer. She didn't win American Idol...so what, she can still sing, got a record deal, so fans like most of the people posting can buy her CD. Yes she came across a little cocky at times, but I might be too if I could sing like that. Those of you who say she can't sing...I believe most of you are tone-deaf. You may not like her style of singing, but you can't seriously believe she can't sing. Taylor was okay. He had a nice bluegrass voice and I liked the harmonica, but his pitch wasn't always on. He was fun to watch and people liked him for his image and may like him in concert. As a singer, I unfortunately think that he won't do all that well in the real world (post AI). His die-hard fans will buy his CD, but he won't have much more support. It all comes down to taste. Elliot probably had the most flawless voice of the season and he was very likeable, but his image wasn't complete. Katharine had a great voice, but she was from California (no die-hard state support from the state where everyone wants to be famous). And Taylor had a great image, support from home, and a good voice (not great, but definately above average). I think season 6 had some of the best talent compared to the other seasons...including Katharine, Taylor, Chris, Elliot, etc...so I am not trying to bash or worship anyone from the show.
I am done ranting now...I just don't see how anyone who enjoys music and isn't tone-deaf can say Katharine McPhee can't sing. That is absurd...I urge you to listen to her duet with Andrea Bocelli (Under the Desert Sky: I Can't Help Falling In Love). She may go a little overboard with the runs, but her voice was flawless. You may not like the style; but pitch, key, tone...it was perfect.
