Seventeen-year-old Jordin Sparks beat out beat-boxer Blake Lewis to win season six of American Idol.
I had never seen a season of Idol before this year and I didn’t miss but one or two episodes in the process.Â Jordin deserved to win this competition.Â Jordin was the best overall package on the show this year.Â She will only be more and more packaged in the next few months as she works on her debut album.
Performers on last nights show included Gwen Stefani (via feed from her live concert), Kelly Clarkson, Smokey Robinson, top six male finalists, Doug E. Fresh (beat-boxing with Blake), top six female finalists, Gladys Knight, Tony Bennett, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Carrie Underwood, Sanjaya Malakar with Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Green Day, Taylor Hicks, Ruben Studdard, Bette Middler (what the heck was that about….horrific), Kelly Clarkson (again…please, once was enough), Taylor Hicks (again….better than the first time), Carrie Underwood (again), and Ruben (again).
What a bunch of show filler at the end. So much that it ran over the alloted TIVO time schedule.Â I had to get on the phone to find out.
Congratulations to Miss Jordin Sparks. You have a huge career ahead of you……and a birthday coming up where you will then be able to see R-rated movies.
