Smash Preview: Katharine McPhee As Marilyn Monroe

| Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesKatharine McPhee

Love. This. Show.

LOVE this audition!

In case you're in a cave and not watching, we'll fill you in on NBC's new drama, Smash.

Among other things, it's about Katharine McPhee is a young Broadway newbie looking to score the lead roll in a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, but she's up against an AMAZZZING Broadway vet, Megan Hilty.

In the scene (above) McPhee belts out a song from the Marilyn musical for her (like zillionth) audition.

It's fierce as hell! Our money's on her.

    they are both amazing but i feel like megan hilty has more of the look and the persona of marilyn its such a hard choice tho! they are both so talented!

    I am Team Karen all the way! She really is fierce.
    I just think Karen portrays the innocent sweet side of Marylin so well. And I think the director is favoring her too. I hope.
    Kat Mcphee and Jack Davenport have such an amazing chemistry by the way.
    LOVE this show.

    Katharine McPhee is so much better than I expected her to be from my limited viewing (American Idol.) Looks to be a great show!
