Ashley Tisdale and Nick Lachey hosted this year's Jingle Ball concert in New York City last night.

While these stars smiled for the camera backstage, they certainly weren't the only celebrities on hand.

Sorry, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. You don't have a friend in Jordin Sparks.

At last night's MTV Music Awards, the former American Idol champion stood proudly for virgins everywhere.

She took exception to host Russel Brand's joke that The Jonas Brothers ought to ditch their purity rings in exchange for some serious action between the sheets. Prior to introducing T.I. for a performance, Sparks said to the crowd:

"I just have one thing to say about promise rings. It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody – guy or girl – wants to be a slut."

Bold, admirable words from the teenager. Do you agree with them?

No one on the planet can relate more to David Cook that last year's American Idol champion, Jordin Sparks.

After being in attendance at the show's finale and seeing Cook knock off David Archuleta for the title, Sparks offered the rocker one piece of important advice:

Boston Hopefuls

"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.

David Cook and Jordin Sparks have a lot in common.

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 �" please don't get me wrong �" and I could be totally wrong, because the show is so unpredictable."

I Won

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!

Wow. And we thought President Bush was being phony this afternoon when he pretended to approve of John McCain as the Republican nominee for president.

Take a look at what Bush was thinking when last year's American Idol champion, Jordin Sparks, performed at the White House earlier this year...

Do you agree? Do you think Blake Lewis should have won?

We wonder how Bush will feel about David Archuleta ... we mean, whoever ends up being crowed this year's American Idol champion.

She came in first on American Idol this season.

But the first man that will ever see Jordin Sparks nude will be her husband.

Nothing But Sparks

That's because the 17-year old won't be havig sex until marriage. And while Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears shake their heads in confusion and disgust over this stance, we applaud the singer for it.

Back when she was 13, Sparks said she promised her parents she'd keep her virginity until her wedding night.

"My parents gave me a purity ring and talked to me about waiting until I'm married to have sex," Jordin said. "It wasn't forced; it just made perfect sense."

Hear that, Shannon Funk? Jamie Kennedy just isn't worth it.

"It's going to be awesome to say to my husband that I waited my whole life for him," Sparks added.

We admire the American Idol winner's parents for instilling such virtues in her. Way to be, Phillippi Sparks.

Call us crazy, but we believe Jordin's virginal claims more than we ever did those of Jessica Simpson.

Jordin Sparks has a new song out, Tattoo.

She also has a message for anyone that thinks her and Blake Lewis are an item: They are not.

"It makes me laugh. We went through this whole experience and it's like I can't even look at him that way," she recently said.

But it's all part of being in the celebrity gossip spotlight. Sparks now has to put up with dating rumors... and difficulty at the mall.

"I can't really go to the mall anymore," Sparks said. Even though she's tried everything to be able to go out in public and not get recognized â€" including wearing hats and hoods â€" she sticks out "like a sore thumb."

That's typically due to the hair, which may as least give Britney Spears some excuse for shaving all hers off. But not really.

"Everything is coming so fast. My life is just turned upside down. But I love it and I want to do it for as long as I can," Jordin said.

As far as "Tattoo" goes, Sparks fell in love upon first listen. The track describes the scar left when a relationship ends and was one of the first songs she considered for her debut album after winning American Idol in May.

"I didn't even get through the first chorus before I was like, 'I need to have this song!'"

That's how we felt the first time we saw Jessica Alba nude photos.

The differences between Jordin Sparks and Britney Spears are almost too numerous to list.

  • One is saving herself for marriage; one has welcomed men into her bed that range from Kevin Federline to Matt Encinias to Criss Angel.
  • One has a full head of curls; one is still growing back her hair after an impulsive, late-night shave.
  • One is close with her parents and draws inspiration from them; the other has gotten into a slap fight with her mother and told her to stay away from grandsons Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Nevertheless, Jordin and Britney do have one thing in common: a new song.

Britney Spears, Twister

As reported earlier on The Hollywood Gossip, Britney's awful, ear drum-shattering ballad has been released online. It makes Heidi Montag sound like Celine Dion.

Listen to it NOW.

The first-ever single from this year's American Idol winner is also now available for your enjoyment. It's called "Tattoo" and is a fine initial effort from this cute 17-year old.

Listen to that tune NOW.

And then let us know: Whose song do you prefer: Jordin Sparks or Britney Spears?

Wanna become the next Carrie Underwood? The latest Kelly Clarkson?

The chance to do so begins this Monday, as auditions for American Idol Season Seven kick off in San Diego. Before the latest batch of hopeful give their pipes a run-through, USA Today asked seven of last year's finalists to offer a few tips...

Jordin Sparks: Know that they're watching to see if you'll crack under pressure. Sing something nobody else is doing, because by the 10th time they've heard it, they're going to cut you off early, and you need all the time they give you. Smile. Dress nice, but not so nice. Maybe smart casual.

Blake Lewis: People have to realize it's a show, and producers want what's best for television. You're trying to get a job. You've got to be yourself and be confident. I didn't view it as television, so it was easy. You're not even singing a whole song. Just be true to yourself. There will always be other auditions.

Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and other American Idols have advice for newcomers.

Melinda Doolittle: One of my friends did the whole audition with her eyes closed. She can sing beautifully, but she didn't connect with the judges. Even if you're nervous, look them in the eye. Sing a song you believe in, one that you can really sell. Capture their attention. They're looking for more than singing.

Phil Stacey: You've got to be real. The truth is, I would have left a better impression if I had done the music I wanted to do from the start rather than wait until I was comfortable. Blake went a long way because he was crystal clear about who he is.

Gina Glocksen: Don't get overwhelmed. It's going to be a long day. Don't sing Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston or Etta James. Make yourself be noticed without overdoing it. I remember this girl at the L.A. auditions who looked as if she didn't have a care in the world. She made it through.

Chris Sligh: Be comfortable. Have fun with it, and show some personality. Maybe tell a joke. I mean, three jokes got me to the top 10. Be original, be funny.

Haley Scarnato: Stay true to who you are, which is hard to do when you're on a TV show. Focus on the song and get caught up in that moment so you won't let everything else overwhelm you.

What, nothing from Antonella Barba? She must be too busy planning a major photo shoot with Amy Polumbo or something.
