She was angered when fellow group member Crystal Stark did not make the top 24.

Mc Phee's run on American Idol led to the use of the term "Mc Pheever".

She gained fame in May 2006 as the runner-up on the fifth season of American Idol.

Her self-titled debut album was released on RCA Records on January 30, 2007, and debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, selling 381,000 copies (as of December 2010).

MTV never aired the pilot and did not pick up the series.

Mc Phee filmed the role in early 2005, before she auditioned for American Idol. She told People that at age 13, she began starving herself and exercising compulsively, and at age 17, became bulimic.

He said: 'Unfortunately there’s an aspect of that that’s like one of those fights you see on You Tube where one of them falls down and then a bunch of people who were standing around come over and kick the person.

Many will no doubt be shocked that the A-lister compared his situation to that of Peterson, who was convicted of first degree murder for the death of his wife Laci and second degree murder for the death of his unborn son Conner.

Mc Phee claimed she was known as the "pretty but stupid" girl in school because she had trouble reading.

In 2005, Mc Phee was persuaded by eventual husband Nick Cokas and her parents to try out for the television series competition American Idol.

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and "My Destiny" peaked at number 60.
