New ‘SMASH’ promo featuring original song “TOUCH ME”
A brand new ‘SMASH’ promo aired earlier tonight featuring a hot, new Katharine musical number! The song in the featured scene is entitled “Touch Me” and was written by Ryan Tedder, Bonnie McKee, and Brett Kutzle. Looks and sounds incredible! It’s a SMASH!
P.S. It’s the final countdown: We are now only one week away from the series premiere of ‘SMASH’ on NBC!
Two new Katharine interviews!
Entertainment Weekly and blogger Rodney Ho have published two fantastic, new Katharine interviews. Click here for the EW interview and here for Rodney’s. Kat covers a lot of interesting topics in these so they are definitely worth reading!
“The medium is very tough on people who come off shows like “Idol,” and there are expectations for you to have immediate massive success. But careers aren’t always like that. Sometimes, it takes several years. In retrospect, I’m gratified it happened the way it’s happened. It grounded me. It humbled me. It makes this process more rewarding.”
- Excerpt from Rodney Ho interview with Katharine.

Interview: Katharine & company talk season one of ‘SMASH’
Click here to check out a fantastic interview from The Daily Beast regarding the first season of ‘SMASH’. Involved in this write-up is Katharine as well as behind-the-scenes forces such as NBC president Robert Greenblatt, writer and executive producer Teresa Rebeck, and more! A lot of interesting topics are covered so it’s definitely a good read!
“[Karen Cartwright, Kat's character] definitely didn’t come out of nowhere, and I can relate with that,” said McPhee in an interview. “I have gone through a lot of agents in the last five years because of various reasons: just build my résumé, just get me a fricking job. I understand that we have these challenges. Some people are not a big enough star or too big of a star or they don’t want somebody coming from a reality show … Even if I didn’t have Idol, I’d have some other thing that someone would want to pigeonhole me into.”
