Good Reviews for Katharine McPhee

Katharine McPhee and other Season Five contestants

Kat was good, but a little dull

Katharine did indeed have a very good voice. After all, she has a mother who is a voice teacher. However, part of the reason I gave her less than perfect score in the vocal category was mainly because that when she sings the high notes, she sometimes pushes them too much and when she sings them in chest voice, she does not sound so good. If she sings the high notes in head voice, she sounds fine. She never really had a truly powerful voice like Kelly, Tamyra, Carrie, Mandisa, etc., but she did have some great performances like 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and 'Someone to Watch Over Me'. She also did not have a lot of personality or stage prescence and was a little dull, which is probably the main reason she didn't win and Taylor did. On the other hand, she is an absolutely beautiful girl and could defintitely be on Broadway some day.

I found Katharine to be my second favorite of the season... She had the most memorable performances and i can still probably list every one throughout the entire competition.. She was in such a way better then taylor. But overall she was not nearly as good as some past season contestants.

I thought kathryn was great. the only thing is that sometimes she screams, and looses control of her range, or over does it.

While she is an attractive girl, Katharine McPhee grated on my nerves. She gave several mediocre performances, and remained in the competition because of the few good ones she gave. While she does have a good voice, she screeches when she goes to a higher octave, which she attempts too often. Overall, her voice did not appeal to me, and I felt she tried too hard to gain attention.

I really do think that eventhough Katharine gave some very good to some not-so-good performances, it is so because she is just beginning her career. Maybe in the future she can do well with her performances especially that she is out of Idol.

Beautiful but an erratic vocal performer

Though not a bad singer at all, she's one of the most inconsistent vocal performer this season. When she's good, she's quite good but when she's bad, she's really bad. She has a reasonably pleasant sounding low register but she tends to screech on her upper register.

Katharine McPhee Objective Checklist
May 26, 2006 10:02 AM ET
Reviewed by: CheckList
'Voice Clarity:' She definitely has a cleaner voice than Taylor. And more so than Chris & Elliot. 'Voice Range:' She has decent range. She tries to sing higher but can't - she starts cracking but for the most part, she has decent range. 'Voice Power:' She has just as much power as Chris at a higher octave. Slightly more power than Taylor. Definitely more power than Elliott. 'Voice Control:' Elliott, Taylor, and Chris have Katharine totally beat in this category because she tries to do too much and goes out of control. 'Emotes Feeling:' Sometimes she does but for the most part she doesn't. She gets so wrapped up in belting out a tune, not realizing what the song is about, and not putting the emotional feeling into the song. Instead, she comes out with a big voice where inappropriate. 'Pizzazz, flair, & energy:' Not really. 'Own style and originality:' Sort of but not really. I've never seen any of these guys take a song and do it really in their very own unique style. 'Stage presence:' Sort of. 'Appeal, charm, or charisma:' Yes pretty good. 'Physically attractive:' She's good-looking. 'Most outstanding performances:' I only remember "Somewhere over the Rainbow." The rest were forgettable, so she gets an 8.

If she sticks to what she does well, Katherine is a good singer

Kat has the best vocal quality and control I've ever seen on American Idol. I really don't understand why the judges put her down. She has vocal training and can really deliver a song well. She has a great personality and appearance that would go far in the music industry. yes, I may have over compensated in my ratings, but it's because others have over compensated for other contestants.

Katharine's voice is clear, strong and easy on the ears. The best image of an idol in the group. She's pretty and anything physcical that is not perfect can be corrected. It's clear that she could be another Celine (only less expensive to listen to - at least in the beginning). Katharine does not seem to have a hidden genre and should appeal to a wide audience. Needs to be stronger emotionally in order to survive.

I think that Katherine is very sexy. When I say that, I'm not necesarily refering to her looks(although she is a looker). When she sings, I think she has a very sexy quality to her performance(particularly her voice). I haven't decided yet if she is the best, but she is my pick.

Kat has a powerful clear voice and commands the stage with her sultry performanes. Unfortunately, she seems to be lacking the "it" factor, and I find that most I've spoken to just haven't been able to "connect" with her....as a matter of fact....our initial love of Katherine seems to be wanning for no explicable reason.

I like Katherine. I think she has a beautiful voice. She is a natural and will end up in the final four, but not because she is a better singer than some of the other younger contestants. She has a stage presence that maturity brings (Like Mandisa has) I don't want to guess any further than that.

Katharine has been a little inconsistent so far on AI, I think. Some really solid performances (like this week's "Think") but others that were not so good (like last week's). However, she is very pretty and certainly talented - I think she just needs to really find her vocal niche and work on her voice control, because sometimes she tends to oversing things. I think she may grow on me throughout the season.

Katherine is the Real Deal!
