Katharine McPhee pulled out that old Idol chestnut, “Over The Rainbow”, to help ring in 2011 on last night’s FOX News special, All American New Year.

I haven’t heard Kat sing that one in awhile! Watch her performance after the jump.

    I was going to write something sarcastic like why didn’t Katharine sing one of her hits..wait a second she has no hits..then I listened to that perfornmance and I gotta say that was a brilliantly restrained rendition..Katherine’s most mature rendering of OTR yet.

    Kat did sing something from her Christmas album, What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve earlier in the show SOTR was exquiste.

    Um… she was lip-syncing :)

    You mean it’s a clue someone is lip-syching when their lips are glued to the microphone. LOL! If she’s going to pretend to sing live, the least she can do is make it look real.

    That might be it!!
    Also, I listened to that studio recording a lot a few years ago, so no way she was pulling a fast one on me.

    If that was a lip synch, she did a heck of a job. I kept replaying to see if I could notice anything and it looked live to me, even up to the vibrations in her mouth and throat area. She must be a good actress.

    Lip synching doesn’t necessarily mean miming. She may have been singing along into a dead mic. That way you get authentic connection between singer and song, as well as realistic muscle movement.

    I remember this song from Idol for her. It was a melt your heart moment. Still love her for that performance. I like her version so much. This lovely woman does not need to lip synch, imo.

    Pull out the Old Chestnut, ha ha! :) You are a gem! MJ! :)

    This is Kat’s voice, so what the heck does it matter. What a beautiful rendition. :)

    Kat looks kind of angelic there. It sounds like the Foster produced Rainbow.
