Katharine McPhee Talks 'Smash' on "Today" + Rocks Adele's 'Rumor Has It'
Katharine McPhee continues making the promo rounds in support of her newly-premiered NBC musical drama 'Smash' by visiting every possible television show in America - She's been to 'LIVE! with Kelly', 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon', and today (February 13th), one my favourites American Idol contestants EVER stopped by 'The Today Show' - There, Ms Mcphee - who looked all classy and stunning in black slacks paired with a pale pink top - had a little chat with Matt Lauer. Of course, Kat only had nice things to say about 'Smash'; "It’s so many things for me. Since I’ve come off ‘Idol’ and before ‘Idol’ I’ve been pounding away as an actress and you try to get people to see you in a different light. For me, it’s an amazing opportunity to be able to do what I love. I never would’ve imagined that I would be being able to act, which is really what I wanted to achieve at some point, but be able to do everything. I get to sing and I get to dance and I get to act". So happy she got this opportunity.
NBC's 'Smash' is actually a smash too. The musical drama premiered last Monday night with 11.5 million viewers tuning in and a 3.8 rating, making it the third highest rated new show debut of the [US] season. Below you can check out a sneak peak at Katharine McPhee singing, and dancing to Adele's catchy tune "Rumor Has It" from an upcoming episode of 'Smash'. LOVE IT! The last vocals = smokin' hot. She so has to put this cover on iTunes! And, I'm also gonna need the full version of 'Touch Me'.
