'Idol' tour: Yay! Shiny Kat McPhee is back!

115823__kat_l_1I hate to rain on the parade of American Idol conspiracy theorists — mostly because, I, too, love an Idol conspiracy theory — but it looks like Katharine McPhee isn’t bagging on the season 5 tour after all. (Not that the idea of Kat blowing off a victory lap in front of her core fans made much sense to begin with.) Anyhow, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kat’s mother announced to katharinefans.com forum that her baby girl has received clearance from her doctor, and will be joining the Idol top 10 in Pittsburgh Thursday night, after a three-week illness kept her on the bench. Kat’s also gonna bring the McPheever to a Thursday taping of The View. Let’s just hope for her sake she’s not funnier than Joy Behar, mmkay?

    Three-week illness? Laughable! What a diva who hasn’t even earned it yet!

  • Faith

    WHO CARES?? Who is this ho?

  • Chris Evans

    YES. So glad. I’m seeing the tour tomorrow and was freaking out she wouldn’t be there.

  • Heather

    Dang it! I was honestly hoping she’d be magically gone until after the Greensboro showing, just so I wouldn’t have to see her.

  • Scott

    I’m glad she is back, but, I wouldn’t blame her for wanting to skip the tour. AI fans all seem to blame her for Chris being eliminated from the show early as if it was her fault (it is all the Chris fans who thought he was untouchable and didn’t feel the need to vote for him that are to blame!). All the negativity that is thrown at her, from this website alone, would be enough for anyone to want to just move on.

    Yaaay, Kat’s back on the tour! She was the best thing about Idol this year and I am very exicted to see her when the tour comes to town. Kat is all about her fans and wouldn’t miss shows on purpose–so there is no conspiracy people!
    Can’t wait for her debut album in the fall, it’s gonna be incredible!

    I find Katherine very very annoying, and she’s chubby in the face. haha.

  • Nikki

    She wasn’t sick at all, she was with her new boyfriend or should I say sugar daddy having a good time.

  • Melina

    I heard that he’s 40 something, and she had the right to call Tyler old

  • Anne

    Since she has trouble remembering words to songs…you think they will supply her with cue cards???

  • Rosie

    UGH. No need to worry that Katharine would be funnier than Joy. She wasn’t funny at all. Neither was she interesting or even seemingly awake. I too hate she will be at the show I’ve got tickets for.

  • jason

    don’t worry haters, kat never made it. i’m a fan, and even i’m ticked off. and she was sort of “vacant” during “the view” also

    Saw the show last night… Kat was there and sung Rainbow. She was only allowed to do two songs. Her voice was good, but not as strong as during the show. Paris screamed everything, and did a bad impression of Janet Jackson. Lisa Tucker was excellent! She played the piano and did Elton John songs…very well. Taylors harmonica was outstanding. Chris was defintely worth the price of admission, as was Elliott. Their duet would have sold out if there were CD’s of it available last night!! Great show…. for thos easking about an opening act…there was none. Mandisa starts the show…there is an intermission at Pickler for about 10-15 minutes… show lasted with intermission about 2 hours.

    Only 15 responses–and most of them negative. . . VERY interesting.
