Tuesday night (June 28), the network tried to build a little buzz for that still-distant pairing by having one of the show’s stars, former “American Idol” runner-up Katharine McPhee, plug “Smash” on “The Voice.”
So did it work for you? The McPhee-centric teaser, which features her singing “Voice” judge Christina Aguilera‘s song “Beautiful,” is pretty effective — even if it relegates other series stars like Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston and Jack Davenport to the background. But we get it: On a music show, you’re going to push the music in “Smash.” (That’s Broadway actress Megan Hilty, by the way, as McPhee’s rival.)
“Smash” will likely premiere in February after “The Voice” launches. The new teaser is below — let us know what you think.
