Katharine Hope McPhee (born March 25, 1984) is an American pop singer, actress, and model who was the runner-up on the fifth season of American Idol in 2006. McPhee was persuaded by Nick Cokas and her parents to try out for American Idol. At the end of the final, the final votes revealed that McPhee did not receive a majority of the votes, thus crowning Taylor Hicks the new American Idol.

In mid-2007, McPhee was named one of the year's 100 Most Beautiful People by People Magazine.
