Subscribe to American Idol alerts

American Idol runner-up Katharine Mcphee has a movie career to look forward to after finding a fan in director Steven Spielberg. The California girl lost out to Taylor Hicks on Wednesday night(24MAY06) but she might become a winner after movie mogul Spielberg requested a private audience with the stunning brunette. Backstage after the Idol final, MCPhee told news show Extra, "Steven Spielberg would like to have a meeting with me. That, for me I think, was the thing that really made this last week calming for me. "I just was like, 'Wow, Steven Spielberg would like to have a meeting with me.' That's incredible! I think that was the moment where I turned to a couple of my close friends, who have been through this competition and I was like, 'I don't know if winning is the best thing for me.'"
