Jordin Sparks Wins "American Idol"
Jordin Sparks has become the youngest "American Idol" in the 6-cycle run of the FOX talent competition as the viewers gave the 17-tear old the majority of the record 74 million votes because of a cheesy custom-made song.
Sparks, the daughter of retired NFL player Phillippi Sparks, was the most improved contestant on the show, who hardly seemed like the winner in the early stages of the season.
Melinda Doolittle, who was sent home last week however, sparked since day one giving superior and consistent performances throughout the season.
Sparks, who has had her share of rocky performances (the Bon Jovi rockout fiasco comes to mind,) may have appealed more to the younger crowd, a demo more willing to keep dialing those Idol numbers.
Blake Lewis never really got his chance to prevail having been forced to sing: "My fears behind me/Gone are the shadows and doubt/That was then/This is my now," combined with an ultrasweet melody.
Luckily, there is no doubt that all three singers will go on to launch successful careers in the music business.
