Like an endorsement for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton from Al Gore, the support of Jordin Sparks should mean a lot to this year's American Idol finalists.
With that in mind, the two heavy favorites - David Cook and David Archuleta - should rest easy tonight.
"I really like Jason Castro," Sparks told MTV News from the orange carpet at last weekend's Kids' Choice Awards. "I like his look, and I love his vulnerability. He goes out there, and if he messes up, he's just like, 'Oops.'
But I like David Cook too. I think the guys are where it's at this year. I love you, girls ï¿½" please don't get me wrong ï¿½" and I could be totally wrong, because the show is so unpredictable."
Jordin Sparks won American Idol last season. Who will win this season?
Come on now, Jordin, pick a winner.
"It's going to be either David Archuleta or David Cook," she said, before sating that she ultimately believes David Cook will be America's next Idol.
We hope she's right!
