Jordin Sparks Shines on Slow Night of American Idol

by at . Comments

There weren't too many shocks on American Idol last night.

Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell exchanged their typical, inappropriate - albeit fairly quick-witted - accusatory banter over who was actually gay.

First Live Performance

Melinda Doolittle and Lakisha Jones sang very well.

And somehow, for some reason, the Halle Berry lookalike, Sanjaya Malakar, continued to draw applause from the crowd. We hope they were just being polite - and come to their senses tonight when it comes time to vote.

One pleasant surprise, however, was the emergence of Jordin Sparks as a contender. The 17-year old handled her Diana Ross song well, impressing the judges and perhaps proving that this won't be just the Melinda and Lakisha show all season long.

As for the guys, well, they weren't particularly noteworthy. With the exception of Chris Sligh - but that's just because we've got a piece of advice for this crooner: put your glasses back on. They help with your image.

And how else will you see Antonella Barba photos clearly?
