Will she be the first one-name teenager?
Say it soft and it's almost like saying it louder.
Randy said it last night, but I said it a lot earlier only nobody could hear me – she's the best singin' seventeen-year-old ever! Amazing poise, great range… and an Amazon-in-training. What more could you want?
By the way, does anyone know if she won?
I'm kidding. The program's only half over here, but rumor has it Jordin's Teen Queen. OK, OK, it's more than a rumor, I looked it up, but I mean I knew she'd win after I heard Blake ask last night, "They want me to sing THAT?"
So Jordin gets this year's generic chart topper, and she deserves it, because she's gonna be around the rest of your lives – unless she does a Brittany Spears, and forty years from now they'll be complaining about her ticket prices.
Ms. Sparks has already been a front page news constant for a week, and tonight should assure she's a permanent fixture above the fold in the Arizona Republic for yeas to come. And I'm not kidding. If you don't believe me, you don't know Phoenix – the biggest hick town in the world. They'll probably rename Squaw Peak again. It was renamed once for the first woman killed in Iraq, but that's nothing compared being American Idol.
Now that's not to take anything away from Jordin. Phoenix has a right to be proud this time. The kid should really be bronzed.
