After weeks of hype, Smash premiered on NBC last night.

And the Broadway musical-based drama received raves from critics for its performances, music and originality. But, let's face it, many men tuned in just to stare at Katharine McPhee.

Katharine McPhee in GQ

The former American Idol finalist is featured in the latest issue of GQ, sizzling in a pictorial and understanding exactly how to sell her series.

"What if I tell your readers that in episode five I take off all my clothes?" McPhee jokes with the magazine. "I mean... no. But can't we just say that?"

Very funny, Kat. But let's get serious for a moment: How about half your clothes? A quarter of them?

Back in the day, Katharine McPhee finished second on American Idol (believe it or not, Chris Daughtry lost to both her and Taylor Hicks) and was known for her gorgeous looks as well as her musical talent. Term used semi-loosely.

Who knows what she's up to nowadays ... besides dying her hair! The singer debuted a new blond bob last night at the Ann Taylor runway show in NYC.

Despite pretty much falling off the planet since losing to Taylor Hicks on American Idol a few seasons ago, Katharine McPhee was overwhelmed by a pack of ravenous paparazzi while out and about in Los Angeles earlier this month.

Fortunately, the 25-year-old wife of Nick Cokas was rescued by a random homeless woman, Quween. It was apparently quite the spectacle.

As a result, FunnyOrDie.com has paired the celebrity with her unlikely savior in a faux infomercial promoting Quween's versatile services.

Celebrities from A-to-Z-list should not hesitate to consult this lunatic when it comes to all their pressing, paparazzi protection needs.

Would you want to mess with Quween?

With 10 American Idol hopefuls ready to throw down tonight, it's only appropriate that fifth season finalist Katharine McPhee celebrates her 24th birthday today!

That, or it's just a coincidence.

Either way, we wish Katharine McPhee the happiest of birthdays on this 25th of March. At the very least, it gives us an excuse to run this hot photo!

She may be having trouble staying with a record label these days, but you can see why Nick Cokas signed Katharine to a lifetime contract, right?

When does your favorite star celebrate the anniversary of his or her birth? Who is up next? Confer with our celebrity birthdays calendar now and see!

Whether it's a stay in the hospital where you actually receive care (Britney Spears), an 8:30 a.m. drunken joyride (Barron Hilton) or a week in Hawaii filled with a nude Katharine McPhee (Nick Cokas), all good things must come to an end.

Here, the former American Idol runner-up and her husband return from their week in paradise. Katharine may have just been released by her record label, and dissed by Simon Cowell, but we trust she's in good hands with Nick Cokas...

Days until Nick Cokas gets Katharine McPhee pregnant? We have no idea, but start the countdown now. The girl has babies on the brain. It won't take that long!

Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas married on Saturday, February 2 at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church before heading to a wedding reception at St. Viviana's in Los Angeles. The couple - and 300+ guests - had a blast!

Putting aside the speculation of a pregnant Katharine McPhee for now, take a look at some of these sweet wedding photos. We have to say, former American Idol star Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas make a very cute couple.

We've posted a few cute pictures below. People has some more here.

She's certainly a beautiful bride. Can you spot Katharine's fellow American Idol Season Four finalist Kellie Pickler among her many bridesmaids?

Katharine McPhee may be happy with her marriage to Nick Cokas.

But the former American Idol runner-up can't be thrilled with the performance of her self-titled debut album, which sold roughly 366,000 since it was released last February. Meanwhile, Simon Cowell simply isn't thrilled with McPhee herself.

"Didn't care much about Katharine McPhee," Cowell told Extra Thursday. "I don't think she was a credible recording artist. Katharine will end up on Broadway!"

Simon went on to to reject the notion that American Idol has given seventh-season Hollywood tickets to several contestants who previously had recording contracts - such as Kristy Lee Cook and Carly Smithson - as part of a conspiracy to insure that the show's next winner is a chart-topping success.

"Oh, give me a break!" Cowell sad. "Regardless of whether or not you got a recording contract, they've all failed, which is why they turn up on American Idol."

One day after their Beverly Hills wedding, Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas jetted off to Hawaii for a romantic honeymoon... and possibly more!

The American Idol star, 23, and her husband, 42, arrived in Maui Sunday. They've been seen hanging out on the beach and shopping.

But they may have other plans entirely.

Katharine, who's said she's "always wanted to be pregnant," may have gotten an early star. Check out this loose-fitting top she's wearing ...

Is Katharine McPhee pregnant? Hmm. This picture may be deceiving, as it may just be the cover-up she's wearing over her swimsuit that makes it look like it.

If Nick Cokas did get Katharine McPhee pregnant, though, consider this the first evidence! And count us among the first to congratulate them!

What do you think? Is Katharine with child?
