American Idol 2007
Main article: American Idol (season 6) In the summer of 2006, Sparks auditioned twice for American Idol once in Phoenix (only auditioned for producers)and again in Seattle after winning KSAZ Fox 10'sArizona Idol. The Seattle audition is the one seen in the January 27, 2007 broadcast of American Idolwhere she earned a "gold ticket" and the right to appear in the Hollywood Round. American Idol judge Randy Jackson made the offhand prediction that, "Curly hair will win this year," which he admitted wasn't Sparks. During the top eleven finalists' performance on the March 25, 2007 Idol episode, Sparks sang a rendition of the Shirley Bassey version "I (Who Have Nothing)"and judges Simon Cowell and Jackson said it was the best vocal performance by anyone since the show started. While on the show, Sparks gained a loyal fan base known as "Sparkplugs" (even having their own official fan site). On May 26, 2007, Sparks was crowned the winner of the sixth season of American Idol having never been in the bottom three. Sparks was the fourth winner never to have been voted in the bottom three (after Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks); Cowell said "Jordin was the most improved over the whole season -- didn't start the best, but midway through this was the girl who suddenly got momentum," he included that "Young girl, likeable, and the singer won over the entertainer [Lewis]." Sparks twice performed on seventh season, once on the Idol Gives Back results show singing her duet with Chris Brown, "No Air" and again with "One Step at a Time" on May 21, 2008, for the finale of American Idol.

Sparks is the fourth contestant to have won without ever being in the bottom 2 or 3, along with Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, and, most recently, David Cook. (Season 2 winner Ruben Studdard was in the bottom 2 once, and season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino landed there twice). After Idol Sparks' songs from the American Idol have been on sale at the iTunes Store and the American Idol official website as Jordin Sparks (EP) (called a "bundle" on Idol official website) shortly after the finale of Idol, along with other songs that did not make the EP's cut that are being sold as individual singles.
According to SoundScan figures posted in USA Today, Blake Lewis sold more digital singles than Sparks, but her mini album sold more than Lewis'. After the finale of Idol, Sparks has made several appearances on television shows. She performed the finale song, "This Is My Now"on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, The Early Show and The View. Sparks had also appeared on Total Request Live, The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet with the runner-up of Idol, Blake Lewis, Larry King Live with contestants who made into the top ten of American Idol. and 106 & Park.

She revealed in an AOL interview that the concert will be more group collaborations and duets as well as bringing along her acoustic guitar.
 Post-Idol Career 2007-present: Jordin Sparks Main article: Jordin Sparks (album) President George W. Bush congratulates singer Jordin Sparks after she sang the U.S. National Anthem Wednesday, February 20, 2008, during the welcome for President Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush to the U.S. Ambassador's Residence in Accra, Ghana, by Ambassador Pamela Bridgewater.On August 17, 2007, it was announced Sparks had signed to 19 Recordings/Jive Records/Zomba Label Group, becoming the first Idol winner to join the label group. David Archuleta (Season 7, runner up) also joined the label group last May 2008, making them the only two Idol contestants who signed a contract with them. All past Idol winners and runner-ups have signed with the RCA Label Group’s J (Fantasia, Ruben Studdard), Arista (Taylor Hicks) or RCA (Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, Clay Aiken, Katharine McPhee, and successor David Cook) labels, with the exception of Carrie Underwood who signed to Arista Nashville. Sparks has stated that she recorded some songs with Heath Thurman on drums for the album but the bulk of the recording would be done in Los Angeles after the tour is over. She said the album would be "Top 40, radio-friendly, uplifting stuff" hopefully mixing "the pop rock sound of inaugural Idol Kelly Clarkson with the R&B edge of Beyonce".
 Her debut album came out on November 20 and November 27, 2007. The album came out to generally favorable reviews. Some critics felt Sparks' vocals were not suited for modern pop music while others thought the album's atypical American Idol material helped Sparks to find a secure future. Along with the label announcement, the first single was revealed to be "Tattoo", which was released to U.S. radio on August 27, 2007. The song became the album's first top ten single. Later, on March 11, 2008, "Tattoo" was released on 'Now That's What I Call Music Vol. 27' as the sixth track on the album, along with 19 other chart-topping hits of early 2008. After the release of "Tattoo", Sparks' official website ran a poll asking fans to vote for what her next single should be, the choices being "No Air", "Freeze", "One Step at a Time," or "Shy Boy". On February 3, 2008, it was announced that "No Air" had won the vote, and was being added to radio stations.
The song became a hit before it was officially released as a single, and peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained for four consecutive weeks. On June 3, 2008, "No Air" was released on 'Now That's What I Call Music Vol. 28' as the ninth track on the album, along with 19 other hits from 2008. She performed "No Air" with Chris Brown on the April 10, 2008 results show as part of Idol Gives Back.Sparks is the only Idol from outside Australia to top the ARIA Singles Chart with "No Air". "One Step at a Time" is the third single from the album and was officially released in the U.S. on June 10, 2008. Sparks performed "One Step at a Time" at Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular for the second year in a row. The song has so far reached the top 20 on the Hot 100 and the top ten on the Pop 100 charts. In 2007, Sparks was asked by a relative who works for SOS Children's Villages - USA in Florida to design a Swarovski Crystal jean jacket to support orphans.  She performed on New Years Eve Live on FOX alongside Blake Lewis. In February 2008, Sparks sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLII (the song was then made available on iTunes the next day) as well as performed for Diana Ross for the 30th Annual Kennedy Center Honors.
She also performed "Tattoo" at the NBA Rookie game during NBA All-Star Weekend. Sparks was the opening act for Alicia Keys on the U.S. leg of her As I Am tour. Before going on tour, she was to appear on the GMA Dove Awards as part of a tribute to Michael W. Smith as well as it was announced Sparks would team up with cosmetics company, Avon, to become a spokesperson for the teen-focused line Mark. Before the tour even started, a potentially career-threatening throat injury forced Sparks to cancel a few weeks of shows. Officials said that she was suffering an acute vocal cord hemorrhage, and was ordered to strict vocal rest until the condition improved. If it had not improved, it may have required laser microsurgery. Her first concert originally was scheduled as an opener for Alicia Keys on Saturday, April 19, 2008. She was back on the road with Alicia Keys by April 30. She remained on the tour until the last show on June 18. In an interview with Perez Hilton, it was mentioned that Sparks will co-headline tour along with Jesse McCartney in August 2008 while she recently joined with the website DoSomething.org and Staples Inc. to resolve the problem with a national back-to-school supply drive.
 In addition, Sparks was a presenter at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards. She presented the male "Hottie" award. She was on Good Morning America promoting "One Step At A Time" on August 20, 2008, performing on their concert series. This is the beginning of her second promotion stretch for "One Step At A Time" as she mentioned she would be doing in her radio interview on the radio show Johnjay & Rich. Future Sparks appeared on The Tyra Banks Show in early 2008, with Banks saying she wanted Sparks for the main role in a scripted television project she was working on. Later in 2008 on the radio show Johnjay & Rich, Sparks mentioned that she recieved an email from Tyra, which she expected to be news about the show, but was just a hello. She added that Tyra said she would contact her when the show came up.
 Timbaland said in an interview that Jordin will be one of the collabrations on his forthcoming album Shock Value 2, which is due out later this year. Jordin mentioned in a recent article with Access Atalnta that both "Permanent Monday" and "Freeze" are in the running for being the fourth single after "One Step at a Time". Jordin is rumored to re-release her first single "Tattoo" in the UK instead of her current single in the US, "One Step at a Time"  Jordin was appointed on August 12, 2008 by President George W. Bush to be a member of the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation for a two year term along with other stars such as Corinne Bailey Rae and Michael W. Smith, whom she has previously worked with. She is scheduled to appear and possibly perform on the 'America United: In Support Of Our Troops' special, scheduled to air on September 7, 2008 on ABC. Sparks is appearing at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards where she has 2 VMA nominations for Best Female Video and Best New Artist. Jordin is the only American Idol winner to have 2 nominations after the release of just one album. The show is scheduled to air September 7, 2008 on MTV. Jordin will join Alicia Keys for a second time on an Australian leg of her As I Am Tour, after she finishes her co-headlining tour with Jesse McCartney.
Sparks has not commented much on her second album. The anticipated album is expected to start production in late 2008 and be released in the middle of 2009. Sparks' second album is expected to have a higher profile and better production due to the great success of the album itself and its four singles. Sparks has confirmed though that her second album is in the works.
