Katharine McPhee - I Have Nothing

    This girl (now a woman) sings so well and she’s so much talented (as a singer and as a front-woman) that It’s not surprise that a Master (I would say a king) of pop music like David Foster fell in love with and married her. She’s not only gorgeous: she’s a very good artist.

    It's always risky to sing Whitney. If you can't hold a candle to her, don't do it. That's the rule.

    that was just horrible what they said to her. She does not need to be compared to Whitney but simply the other contestants. And she did an amazing job

    I love her but her vocals at the start of the performance where karaoke. She brought it at the end though...

    She did good. Not better than whitney for sure but she did alright. She doesn't deserve the criticisms. Simon admitted she overly criticized this performance the next day.

    Randy's criticism is shit. When she sang The Voice Within he says 'you sound too much like the record', but then when she sings I Have Nothing he says shit like 'you need to sound more like the record'! What does that even mean? The whole point of being an artist and singing live is that you sound as good, if not better than on recordings. If he's trying to say she's not original enough or that she's too unique and needs to sound more like someone else he needs to shut the fuck up what the hell would he know about singing or oringinality anyway? If I were up there and he pulled that shit I'd be like listen dude, first off don't call me yo or dog, call me by my name and you being the professional better talk like a proper gentleman and act like you're a professional if you think you're going to criticize me, and sorry but the only person I'm here to sound like and outdo and outperform is myself, because in a contest where singing original songs isn't allowed you best believe if I'm going to sing covers of songs someone else put their mouth all over each goddamn night you best believe I'm going to be as original as I can be as if the song were my own!

    So, no one should ever sing q song jyst because Whitney Houston sang it? Bulll! Katherine sang her take on an old song. She wasnt trying to be Whitney. The judges are full of it.

    While not being quite as good a singer as Whitney Houston....Catherine has been waaaaaaaay more successful in life.....other than her singing...Whitney's life was a trainwreck..and that's just what the media let us see...I'm sure it was much worse..probably a literal hell on earth..it was so bad it even permeated down to her kid...

    Katharine did a great job with this song that Whitney Houston nailed and was so famous for. I really loved Whitney Houston but Katharine did do the song justice!

    Catherine sang well! These idiots so assumed pride of judges do not judge but criticise! None of the judges can sing as well as Chatherine in fact. I predict she will be a super star soon!

    The judges were wrong. 1. Kat sang this LIVE with an orchestra and audience NOT like Whitney recording it in a controlled recording studio. 2. I listened to Whitney's and Kat's version both with my eyes closed. Kat had more grit and passion in her singing. 3. Both singers have different voices, tone, range and sound, and both have great chops (singing ability) If Kat were black and Whitney were white, I wonder if the judges would have said.."well Whitney, you are certainly no Katherine Mc Phee" ???

    Now I remember why I stopped watching Americal Idle. I can understand what they were saying, however, I felt Katharine sang very well and I was touched by her performance. When a singer performs a Beatles or Elton John number they are doing it their own style like it or not and I feel when choosing a Whitney Houston song as well. Katherine has a beautiful voice.

    Hey Randy. Stick your head where the sun don't shine. Paula, join Randy. Simon, join them. Katharine can sing circles around all 3 of these judges and this competition. A song is a song. Just because it was huge for Whitney, does not mean it cannot be covered.
    And finally, who took the bribe to rig the vote that cast Taylor Hicks as a winner. This is why I've stopped watching "talent" and award shows.

    I was under the impression that they were amateurs, so why would they even compare her to a pro? 2) i was also under the impression that they liked it when they put there own spin on a song.? I think the judges are wrong these contestants are NOT PROS!!! STOP JUDGING THEM LIKE A SEASONED SINGER!!!!

    I've read the comments on this video and must agree that the judges were way out of line with their criticism. She may not be Whitney so what? She sang this song very well. I did not watch this season of American Idol and the first time I saw Katharine McPhee was on the TV show SMASH and thought to myself where has she been hiding. This girl has talent way beyond the judges ability to comprehend. I have appreciated Simon's frankness and honesty with his criticisms from the first time he arrived on seen but here he completely missed the mark. I have not heard all covers of this song but I don't think anyone could improve on Whitney's stupendous original but Katharine certainly did it justice.

    Oh wow the judges were so brutal!
    I dont totally disagree with them, though. It was great at the beginning, then it got to be too much for her toward the end.

    Her mother was right, she needs to focus on singing more clearly. Her notes could be better. She depends too much on "pop singing" tricks.

    The season would've been much better if it were ordered as follows: Paris Bennett (Top 6), Kellie Pickler (Top 5), Elliot Yamin (Top 4), Taylor Hicks (Top 3), Katherine McPhee (Runner-Up), and Chris Daughtry (Winner).

  • Eli Allen

    I don't think the performance was as bad as the judges' claimed. With that said, she was very entertaining as a performer/singer but never had huge potential as a recording artist. Fortunately, she nailed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in the finales and the finales wouldn't have been as entertaining without her singing it in the finales.

    The only good thing about this performance is the dress & hair. I think she looks fabulous! The vocals though are everywhere. she can’t hit the high notes & there are some parts where she was screeching. I agree with Randy. This song was way too big for her. And I also agree with Paula. Comparing her previous week’s performance - Someone To Watch Over Me where she sang intimately. LOL.. but Ryan’s comment was the most harsh when he said she would get plenty of votes from those who don’t have their volumes on!
