Katharine McPhee Sings Florence And The Machine's 'Shake It Out' On Smash


Katharine McPhee will cover Florence And The Machine's "Shake It Out" on the March 12 episode of Smash.

The American Idol star, who plays Karen, a struggling Broadway actress, decides to sing the song at a bar mitzvah performance she has scheduled to earn some extra cash. In the episode, Karen contemplates her career, with the song helping her reach a revelation.

McPhee explained how she and the show's producers arrived at the choice of song, telling AOL Music:

"We went through a bunch of songs and when I heard this last year, I knew we had to do it . . . we had heard the song and thought this would be amazing especially in this setting."

"When I was told I was going to sing with a bar mitzvah band, I thought, 'What could we do?' Of course everyone thought it should be an old standard but the label and I put our heads together to think what might be very cool and also fun," she added.
