The thing that irks me most about American Idol is that nobody seems to want to acknowledge the fact that like 3 winners in the show’s 10-year history have actually managed to maintain a substantial level of music fame. So if winners can’t keep it going, what kind of hope can runner-ups have? Depends, because Katharine McPhee isn’t going down without a fight. We haven’t seen Katharine since The House Bunny (2008), but she’s the star of NBC’s brand new show “Smash” and in this GQ photo shoot, she sheds a little clothing and makes us wonder why we ever forgot her name. Just ask Lindsay Lohan, because nothing semi-revives a career like a raunchy photo shoot. Especially with legs like those. You’re welcome.
