As fans know, Katharine ultimately came in second place during her season on American Idol. Taylor Hicks won the top spot.
Katharine went on to star in the TV show Smash. She also appeared in the musical Waitress in London’s West End.
In 2019, Katharine turned heads by marrying music icon David Foster, who is 35 years older than she is. David was previously married to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid.

In between Instagram performances, Katharine took her fans back to 2006 by donning the same yellow dress. In the caption she wrote, “It’s day 26 of quarantine and we’re breaking out dresses from 14 years ago.”
She also shared a throwback photo of her wearing the dress back in 2006.
Fans were stunned that it still fit. One fan commented that Katharine is aging like a “fine wine.”
Katharine later sang the song on IGTV, Yahoo Style reports.
