We hear a lot these days about Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and the season eight finalists on American Idol. For good reason, they rule!

But let's take a moment and recognize the talented season six champion, Jordin Sparks, who has enjoyed a solid career in the spotlight since her victory in 2007.

Jordin's most impressive accomplishment? Dueting with Chris Brown on "No Air" and coming out of it without a black eye! That's not as easy as it sounds.

Over the summer, Sparks has sported a pair of contrasting hairstyles. She looks cute in both, but we're asking readers to choose their favorite. Study the photos below and then vote in our poll...

The circus just got a lot more talented.

Jordin Sparks announced last week that she's joining Britney Spears for the second leg of the latter's North American Circus Tour. Said the American Idol champion:

"Britney's show is incredible and for me to be a part of it is a great opportunity,"

Sparks will perform on the U.S. portion of the tour, which includes concerts in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Philly, Miami, Detroit, Chicago and Las Vegas.

We wonder if Britney is afraid of being overshadowed by Sparks. Or if she even knows who Sparks is. Or has a clue what time zone she's currently in.

Paula Abdul's manager says his client has not been offered a contract to return to American Idol.

Simon Cowell says he definitely wants his fellow judge and occasional flirt to come back next season.

What do past Idol contestants say about the possibility of Abdul's absence from the show?

We couldn't get a hold of Adam Lambert because he's on the road touring, but Jordin Sparks was fully on Paula's side in an interview with Extra this week:

“Oh my gosh, they need to keep Paula,” the season six champion said. “It would be so different without her on the show... She was the one who usually came back and was like, ‘Are you guys doing okay? Are you fine?’ And I definitely think they need her. She’s amazing and deserves it.”

Despite Jordin's kind words, Abdul might still be replaced on the show.

If that happens, who do you think should take her spot?

Are Jordin Sparks and Steph Jones, a singer-songwriter and ex-model to whom she has been romantically linked, ready to take it to the next level?

"We don't know whether or not to go further or to just keep the friendship," the singer, 19, told People at the 57th Annual BMI Pop Awards. "It's crazy. We've got the feelings, but we don't know whether or not to say it out loud."

One thing is for sure: Steph Jones keeps her feeling bubbly inside: "He's a really good guy," the sixth American Idol champ says. "A lot of fun."

So how did the two initially link up? Jordin Sparks proudly admits it was she who made the first move: "I met him two years ago," she says.

"He was writing for Blake Lewis, who got second place [on Season 6 of American Idol]. I was like, 'Can I get your contact information because you are a songwriter?' I was still working on my album and he was the only person I knew in L.A."

"Every time I would come I would say, 'Hey, you want to hang out?' "

They did just that.

The pair have been seen cheering at L.A.'s Lakers-Rockets playoff game at L.A.'s Staples Center and slow dancin' to Michael Buble's live rendition of (the appropriately titled) "Me and Mrs. Jones" during the Gamble and Huff icon tribute.

"We've gotten really close," Jordin confirms, although the question of whether the two will start dating officially is still up in the air. For now.

"We'll see what happens," says Sparks.

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and Steph Jones, her model/singer beau, took in the sights at the Los Angeles Lakers-Houston Rockets game last night in L.A.

They look like a very happy couple ...

Sparks, Jordin

Houston-born Steph, 24, was pulling for the visitors, Tweeting “Cali is mad quiet [right] now… I can here a pen drop n this bad boy… LETS GO ROCKETS!!!!!”

Hope Steph's other traits make up for his lack of spelling acumen.

The American Idol winner, 19, offered her own post-game reactions via Twitter: “What an amazing game to go to! So much drama! Whooooooo! 1-1 this is gonna be an awesome series! (still not rooting for LA) LOL!”

The Lakers ultimately shut down the Rockets, 111-98, evening the series 1-1 and leaving Steph Jones disappointed. Oh well. At least he has Jordin Sparks.

Today's two biggest celebrity birthdays have next to nothing in common.

Jordin Sparks won the sixth season of American Idol, and almost more significantly, is an idol American girls can actually look up to. Her down-to-earth nature, self-confidence and family-first values make this 19-year-old a rare star in this era.

Ali Lohan, who turns 37 15 today? She's a train wreck in training.

Not entirely of her own volition, of course. With mom Dina Lohan pimping her hard, Ali has no choice but to become a raging crack whore for the entertainment industry and follow in the twisted, drug-addled footsteps of big sis Lindsay.

Emancipate yourself, Ali. Do it soon. New York courts are so liberal, they might actually go for it. Then move in with Jordin. There's still time!!

Anyway. Here's a photo tribute to the birthday girls. Click to enlarge ...

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!
