The two hit it off, and McPhee has apparently been asked to perform at their wedding.

According to, after McPhee lost out to Taylor Hicks on the Idol finale, Cruise and Holmes asked her right away to perform.

Either way, Cruise and his bride-to-be are big McPhans, and it’s hard to blame them (although McPhee’s purported association with Scientology is a tad worrisome). The singer is also reportedly meeting with director Steven Spielberg to discuss possible film projects. Wow. Between McPhee and Chris Daughtry, it’s beginning to look like coming just short of being named American Idol is the way to go.
