Jordin Sparks Talks About Winning American Idol

by at . Comments

Millions of American Idol fans made the right decision last night:

Jordin Sparks was named the winner of this reality show's sixth season. As she joins the ranks of Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and more, Jordin talked about the experience:

I Won
What was going through your mind right before Ryan announced that you won?
I was standing up there and Blake Lewis was holding my hand and he was like, "I love you, sweetheart." I was like, "I love you too." He squeezed my hand and I knew whatever happened I'd be okay and everything would be fine. He's such a great supporter and so encouraging of me. I'm one of his biggest fans and he's one of mine. It turned out pretty cool, I guess!

You became very emotional during your last song, 'This Is My Now.' What were you feeling then?
It was a mix of a lot of things. I can't believe that it's over. It seems like years ago that I auditioned in Seattle, but at the same time it's gone by so fast. It was a mix of everything was ending and I don't know â€" the song is just so amazing. I looked up at all the people and I saw my parents sitting there and I realized that what I said I wanted to do a long time ago, I was doing it. And it just totally overcame me.

Did you know you had such fan support going into the finals?

I've been in a bubble, so I didn't. When I went home I got so much support there, but that was my home state. I had no idea what everybody else was thinking. I love the love, what can I say?

* The Hollywood Gossip note: You can say for sure if Antonella Barba is dating Blake or not.

Are you ready to record your first album?
I might be getting some material during the [Idols Live] tour and then I guess right after I'll start working on that.

Will you write your own songs?

I would love to write. I've written a couple of songs but I don't know if they'll go on the album. But I've written and I hope I can write a little bit on my album.

Do you have a favorite performance?
I have no idea. I loved each and every performance that I did. There were some that I liked more than others. I think that I tried to top myself every performance. I liked them all. I don't regret anything.

* The Hollywood Gossip note: We think her rendition of A Broken Wing was the best.

Did you speak with Simon after tonight's show?
He was like, "Congratulations, Jordin. You deserved it." And I was like, "Thank you." And he gave me a hug and it was like, "Oh my God! Simon Cowell is hugging me!"

Jordin Sparks Quotes

Sleep as much as you can because you don't get any sleep. It's a year later and I still haven't gotten a whole eight hours of sleep yet ... I'm still reeling from winning last year. But, I guess I would say just try and enjoy every moment you have.

Jordin Sparks [to David Cook]

It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody - guy or girl - wants to be a slut.
