‘Smash’ Star Katharine McPhee Heats Up GQ Magazine (PHOTO)

‘Smash”s Katharine McPhee looking FOINE in GQ.

As if you actually needed any more incentive to watch NBC’s new show “Smash” (musical numbers, dancing and celebrities aren’t enough?), the show’s star Katharine McPhee also happens to look all kinds of gorgeous in her recent GQ spread. Posing seductively in an empty tub, Katharine rocks some perfect “I just made out with a hottie woke up from a nap” hair along with a killer cat eye and flirtatious pink lingerie. ‘Cause really, why shouldn’t you look like you’re ready to hit the club when you’re in the tub?

Aside from Katharine’s obvious star quality, rumor has it that the show, which premiered Monday, Feb. 6, at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, is completely amazing. Sure, “Smash” gets the inevitable comparisons to its musical cousin “Glee,” but according to McPhee, the shows are different: “You know, ['Glee' is] a pretty heavy musical show. That show does, like, six songs in an episode. We’ll do, at most, three.” McPhee also urges all the dudes out there to give this seemingly chick-oriented program a shot: “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.” Or just show him a pic of how hot Katharine looks in GQ, and we have a feeling he’ll be toootally open to adding “Smash” to the DVR.

“Smash” premieres Monday, Feb. 6, at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
