Jennifer Lopez reportedly recently renewed her American Idol contract, and she has the support of one of the franchise’s most successful winners! In Touch caught up exclusively with Jordin Sparks, 21, at her phenomenal surprise performance in Times Square with Energizer to benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
The supremely talented (and now, considerably more svelte) singer has been so busy promoting her record, it wasn’t too surprising when she told us she hadn’t heard the news that J. Lo had reportedly signed on for another season. “Oh, she is? Good! I didn’t know! I’ve been so busy, I haven’t been able to keep up!” Jordin confessed, but added, “I think she does a really good job. She’s really sweet, but she’s firm at the same time, which is good!”
Jordan is also loyal to the American Idol judges that put her on top and admitted that she’ll also be tuning in to see The X Factor this fall. “Simon and Paula? Of course I’m going to watch them! Thank God for being able to record your TV shows!”
