The 36-year-old dazzled in a yellow button-down halter gown, featuring a plunging neckline and a thigh-high leg slit.

She captioned the photo: ‘It’s day 26 of quarantine and we’re breaking out dresses from 14 years ago. Might have to resurrect this moment, on a red carpet, once we are out of this.’ 

It was accompanied with a photo of her performing Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing on the season’s Top 6 episode in the same dress when she was 21.

That happened to be the episode where she met now husband David Foster, 70, who appeared as a guest mentor.

McPhee later came in second place to Taylor Hicks during the season finale on May 24, 2006.

Before revisiting the stunning yellow dress, she recreated her audition intro with a funny clip.

She sported a similar look to what she wore in her 2006 audition, paired with an American Idol number tag.

Spliced with footage from the episode, she responded to Simon Cowell asking her age: ‘I’m thirty-si… 21.’

McPhee auditioned for the show in San Francisco, singing Billie Holiday’s God Bless the Child.
