Katherine McPhee stepped out looking effortlessly smashing on her dinner date with her husband Nick Cokas and friends at BOA Steakhouse on Monday night.
The former Idol star will display her singing chops in the new Stephen Spielberg-produced musical drama alongside Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston as part of NBC's mid-season schedule in 2012.
It's also good to see the singer still going strong with her hubby of three years -- who is also 19 years her senior!
Cokas also is partially responsible for McPhee's career launch ... the singer was coaxed by Cokas and her parents to try out for the fifth season of American Idol.
