The American Idols Live starts their U.S. tour yesterday without runner-up Katharine McPhee, due to her suffering from severe bronchitis and laryngitis. McPhee will also be sideline today, with McPhee’s doctor ordering a “total voice rest.”
McPhee wrote in a statement about her disappointment in missing the two shows:
I need to follow my doctor’s orders to recuperate and reunite with the rest of the idols. That’s the most difficult part, not talking!
