Despite Setbacks, McPhee in Good Spirits

by at . Comments

Katharine McPhee may have just fought severe laryngitis for three weeks, then fractured her foot on stage upon joining the American Idols Live tour, but you wouldn't know it to look at her. Well, except for the cast.

Point being, the starlet is still in great spirits. McPhee, 22, who tripped and broke her foot backstage at an August 1 concert while sprinting to see Kellie Pickler's performance, is shown below in Sunrise, Fla., having a good laugh with Pickler and their fellow Idol finalist, Mandisa.

"I’m a hobbler on the stage!" she joked to Us Weekly.

McPhee also made herself available to young fans at the Marriott hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., before boarding the Idols' tour bus.

"You just don’t realize the number of people you reach on that show until you go into smaller towns," she said.
