NBC Doesn't Want You To Know That Katharine McPhee Was An Idol

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolKatharine McPheeBusiness BlitzThe Voice


NBC is treating Katharine McPhee's Idol days like a Cinderella-esque unwanted stepchild.

The network refuses to acknowledge McPhee former days on American Idol, which has caused them a lot of flack.

On her bio for the Smash site, it doesn't mention anything before her debut album in 2007, which was released almost immediately after Idol.

NBC even goes as far as "Introducing" her in their ads as if no one has ever heard of her.

Then again, we can't blame them. They've got a pretty penny invested in The Voice.

Why give Fox any free publicity, right?

    She's a star, leave that past alone. It does seem like it's been ages since she was there though why mention if she wasn't the winner, it's up to her at this point. (Taylor Hicks was, where is he?).

    well I can see why they wouldn't want you to know about her album… its terrible and it sold horribly.

    Surely you're not suggesting smoke and mirrors coming from a mainstream station.

    So? You don't want us to know your family was an illegal. Get over it.

    I think it's a bit odd not to mention it considering that's how she first came on the scene. But it's perfectly fine not to.

    LOL do they think the audiences are stupid or have amnesia?
    How else does anyone know her? It's like trying to make Kelly Clarkson look like she came out of nowhere when everyone knows that that's how Kelly Clarkson got noticed in the first place. Everyone knows where katherine mcphee came from. She may not be really famous, but they know where she's from. It's not like she's new to the media scene. wtf?
    NBC must be smoking some serious crystal meth…
