Katharine McPhee is a busy woman. In addition to starring on NBC's 'Smash,' the singer and actress is still working hard on her career as a solo artist. The former 'American Idol' contestant, who recently chopped off her hair into a shaggy lob which looks fab on her, is currently recording her Columbia Records debut.
In this week’s episode of ‘Smash’, Tom (Christian Borle) and his new boyfriend Sam sing a song about opening night as the cast prepares for ‘Tech’ week, also known as hell week in the theatre world. Our New Yorkers travel to Boston where three weeks of preview shows will be performed. Ivy (Megan Hilty) helps Derek (Jack Davenport) figure out a set problem and he replies (seemingly) sincerely “And that’s why I love you,” leaving her speechless. Let the show begin!
In this week’s episode of ‘Smash,’ titled ‘Publicity,’ Uma Thurman’s guest character Rebecca Duvall returns to cause more drama. The Hollywood actress continues to ask that musical numbers are removed in order to avoid the fact that she simply cannot sing. Julia (Debra Messing) and Tom (Christian Borle) write a new song, which would be performed by other member of the ensemble. In another twist of events, Rebecca asks Karen (Katharine McPhee) to hang out with her at a club, to which naïve Karen hastily agrees.

Episode six of NBC’s ‘Smash,’ titled 'Chemistry,' skyrocketed off with Ivy (Megan Hilty) having problems with her voice. Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Eileen (Anjelica Houston) are having money issues, while Tom (Christian Borle), Derek (Jack Davenport) and Julia (Debra Messing) are at each others’ throats due to the incomplete script. During rehearsal Ivy has a hard time hitting the high notes, croaking through them painfully just in time for Eileen to walk in. Welcome to show business!
