All of which pales in comparison to the precision and range of Megan Hilty. If they had cast someone with a weaker persona and voice to be her rival, maybe it would come off, but no she is far too weak for the storyline she's expected to carry.

Why is this a thread? Isn't there a Smash thread already?

It is my opinion, but it's shared by many critics. A near consensus by any critic worth reading about.

Re: Katherine McPhee is AWESOME in SMASH

This show is about on it's way out. I'm not sure it will last the full season 2. They fired 4 cast mates, the producer and some of the writing staff? Not a good sign.

Gurl please. Megan Hilty is plenty talented and a superior actress, but vocally I much, MUCH prefer Katharine. Not even that close for me. Her acting may not be exactly Emmy worthy, but she has the silkiest, smoothest tone to her voice and that makes up for her slightly more limited range. For me, Megan has pretty much a typical Broadway style voice with a lack of distinctive quality.

Anyway, as many holes and flaws as this show had throughout it's first season, I still managed to enjoy it. Probably a result of the fact that I used to stan for Kat, and I want to sleep with a handful of the cast. I hope things improve and work out for the upcoming season, but as Nate said, there are definitely some big underlying question marks that aren't very encouraging.

Re: Katherine McPhee is AWESOME in SMASH

Hope the show makes it through the second season, it became one of my favorite new shows this year. I have loved Katharine McPhee since her Idol days and she's fantastic on Smash.

Frankly I'm glad the assistant guy got cut off from the show. I love villains but he's really a character the audience hates to hate.

Re: Katherine McPhee is AWESOME in SMASH

This song still slays my life, I really think she could have had a big hit with this if she released it as a solo lead album single.

Hey, I was a huge Kat fan during her season of American Idol. I even enjoyed her JoJo rip-off single Over It.

I just thought she took a pretty simple character to begin with and took it down a step, and while I don't disagree that she has a pretty pop voice that I thought worked well especially in the out of place 'Touch Me', in the few episodes I've seen I've gotten queasy by the sugary saccharine she brings to every scene.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind the performance of Kat nearly as much if she wasn't pitted against Megan who as you said has a powerful Broadway voice. In a plot line that involves finding a lead in a Broadway show, I can't help but question why the she show insists upon Kat's character being the underdog star. Which leads to another fundamental issue I had with the sudden realization that Ivy's mother is a famous Broadway vet played by the incomparable Bernadette Peters. If she's really supposed to be the unknown veteran, there's no way she could've had a mother that famous within broadway, not with the natural voice Hilty possesses. If she was in fact a talentless hack, it would've been more believable

If they wanted this to be Kat's star making vehicle casting Hilty as Ivy was simply dead wrong. Throwing in someone comparable to Ke$ha would've at least given Katharine a fighting chance.

Based almost entirely on having The Voice (one of the highest rated shows on NBC which has terrible ratings across the board) as a lead-in. It still lost around 10 million viewers every week and 3-4 points in the key demos.

I'm not saying any of the other drivel NBC has on the air could've retained more viewers, but it's higher numbers are clearly skewed by the success of The Voice.

Re: Katherine McPhee is AWESOME in SMASH

This show blows. Loved Kat on American Idol and some of her solo songs. Had It All and Terrified in particular.
