American Idol season five runner-up Katharine McPhee is about to have a spectacular year. She’s starring in NBC’s highly anticipated show SMASH, which is receiving rave reviews. 

On the show, Katharine plays Karen Cartwright, an aspiring actress who wants the lead role in a Broadway show based off the life of Marilyn Monroe.  

In the March issue of GQ magazine, due out later this month, Katharine dishes on her new role while looking as sexy as ever. She expalins the 3 reasons why guys should watch the muscial drama: 

Reason #1: Your lady does it for you. Now do it for her. “Listen,” McPhee says, “I go see all the guy movies, so now I know I love them. But you have to be open to it. I would say to the girlfriends out there: Just nail him down, make him watch an episode with you.”

Reason #2: It’s not like they’re singing constantly. “I can understand why guys wouldn’t be into Glee. You know, that’s a pretty heavy musical show. That show does, like, six songs in an episode. We’ll do, at most, three.”

Reason #3: “Okay, how about this: What if I tell your readers that in episode five I take off all my clothes?” Sold! But hold on—would it be true? “I mean…no.” McPhee laughs mischievously. “But can’t we just say that?”

SMASH premieres tonight, Feb. 6 at 10 on NBC. Will you be watching? Tell us in the comments below.
