Katharine McPhee Holiday Special Announced

at . Comments

American Idol Worship has learned that this season's runner-up, Katharine McPhee, will be appearing in a CBS Primetime Special called "A Home for the Holidays." Sounds like a great way to spend the holidays to us!

The show will air on December 22 and has been confirmed by McPhee's label, RCA Records. November has three notable dates of its own involving McPhee:

Katharine McPhee: Home For the Holidays
  • Tuesday, November 7: Bocelli album will be released, featuring a duet with Katharine
  • Tuesday, November 28: Katharine's debut album is scheduled to be released by RCA and 19 Recordings Limited.
  • Thursday, November 30: McPhee will appear on the Today show to promote the record.

Katharine is also featured in the November issue of Cosmopolitan with her friend Rachel Bilson on the cover. The article is about Bilson, but in it, there is a section titled "Five Things You Don't Know About Rachel," one of them being that she is a high school friend of Katharine's.

We already knew that, of course, but it's still cool. The magazine also has a picture of the two from American Idol Top 7 night. We'll have it as soon as we can get our hands on it!
