Jordin Sparks. There were over 74 million votes cast after the final performance episode of American Idol Season 6. According to Ryan Seacrest it was the most votes ever and these werenâ€™t even worth a dime a pop to charity. So, for what many seem to consider the weakest season so far, contestant wise. Especially, the two that ended up in the final face off. This was actually a pretty big year in both viewers and voters.
Of the final two, Blake Lewis was the most entertaining, but Jordin was the better singer. As she easily demonstrated when they both had to sing the same song. I still think that Melinda Doolittle should have been the winner, as shown in her performance with BeBe & CeCe Winans. She definitely had the best voice of all the finalists.
The results finale show was pretty good, with four of the past five American Idol winners taking the stage to sing for us. Kelly Clarkson sang her latest single, â€œNever Again.â€ Carrie Underwood sang â€œIâ€™ll Stand By You,â€ which they played a video of during â€œIdol Gives Back.â€ Taylor Hicks and Ruben Studdard also took the stage. At the end of the show they were all back one more time singing Beatles tunes.
Do you think Jordin was deserving of the win? Who do you think the best American Idol winner is so far?
