Jordin Sparks “Pleasantly Surprised” by New American Idol Panel; Says New Single Will “Blow People Away”
Count JORDIN SPARKS among the past American Idol winners who are enjoying the show’s new judging panel. Jordin, who’s probably the biggest actual fan of the show out of all the past champs, says she’s “pleasantly surprised” by how well the chemistry between new judges STEVEN TYLER, JENNIFER LOPEZ and original judge RANDY JACKSON is working. She adds, “Steven Tyler is hilarious. Like [when he said] ‘Did you eat paint chips as a kid?’…What? Where does that come from? But it’s so amazing!”
There is one thing that has been disappointing for Jordin about this season of American Idol, though — the lack of really terrible auditions. She says, “They’re not showing as many [bad ones] this year, so I kind of miss that, and I didn’t think I would.” Jordin says she’s really looking forward to the field being narrowed down to top 12 or top 10, because she wants to see record executive JIMMY IOVINE — a new addition to the crew this year — come in and “do more of an artist-development thing.” She says, “I’m excited to see that change.”
Meanwhile, Jordin’s focusing on her career. She’s currently working on her third album and is very excited about her new single. She says, “I don’t wanna say to much, because it’s gonna blow people away! I don’t think people are really gonna expect [a song like this] from me.” She describes it as “an upbeat, dance-ier type with a driving beat.” No word on exactly when it’ll be coming out, though.

Jordin Sparks American Idol Alum Jordin Sparks is a little worried she may lose her crown as the youngest winner of the Foxx reality show. Sparks, who says she hasn’t been watching the show regularly due to her busy schedule, has her eye on some “amazing” young talents.
“I’ve seen a couple of episodes. I’ve been pretty busy, everything’s been insane. But I’ve watched a couple,” Sparks tells Singersroom. “I actually might lose my crown this year of [being] the youngest winner ever because they lowered the age and there have been some great 15, 16, 17 year olds that I’ve seen and they’re so amazing. So I wish them the best of luck and I hope that they do well.”
Sparks also tells Singersroom she has started work on her third studio album, the follow-up to ‘Battlefield.’
“I just started working on it. I was recording something today that might potentially be for a movie – the theme song of a new movie coming out, so I’m excited about that,” she says. “I’m working on new stuff. I saw Ryan Tedder and he gave me an amazing song that I’m really, really excited about. So we’ll see how it goes.”
