Are original new Yuletide tracks from Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis or Ariana Grande not doing the trick? Perhaps, this holiday anthem by Jordin Sparks will get you in the Christmas spirit.

Inspired by the best feelings of the holidays, “This is My Wish” is a simple, joyful reminder that peace is the greatest gift of all. The American Idol Season 6 winner is joined by The Young People’s Chorus of New York City on the track. To honor the occasion, Glade is donating $150,000 to Toys for Tots. If you like the joyous single, you can download it for free.

Holy sexpot Jordin Sparks. Not only has the American Idol Season 6 winner grown up to become a very beautiful woman physically, but musically as well. Based on these two new tracks, her days pining over some crush on some peppy little beat are long gone. Girlfriend is giving me slinky soulful bedroom music. Weeeerk. Must be all that time she’s spending in the bedroom with Jason Derulo.

Both the following gems are produced by Salaam Remi. “Chocolate Brown Eyes” surfaced several weeks ago and is lifted of his One: In The Chamber album which features collaborations from Ne-Yo, Stephen Marley, Akon and more. I’m not sure what “11:11 (Wish)” is for, but thankful it debuted yesterday. I’m definitely feeling this creative direction Jordin’s taking. It sounds fantastic on the 23-year-old. Give both tracks a listen below.

Jordin Sparks & Jason Derulo Have Vertigo On New Duet

In: Donovan, Music

Both Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo feature duets with each other on their upcoming albums. While the American Idol Season 6 winner teased “Before It Breaks” weeks ago, it’s Derulo’s Tattoos duet that’s surfaced in full first. It’s clear Jason is smitten with Jordin. His current official single “Marry Me” is about how he imagines proposing to his girlfriend in the future. Now, he’s making beautiful music with her. The two definitely have chemistry in and out of the recording studio.

Vertigo” isn’t what you’d expect from Jason’s typical dance-oriented fare. Instead, it’s on the simpler side with very minimal production. Even though I’m sometimes dead inside, I’m a sucker for slow-tempo duets. So this one is right up my alley. Give it a listen below.

How romantic would it be to have someone write a song about you? And not in a Taylor Swift bitter ex-girlfriend kind of way, because that would suck. Rather, have one telling the world just how fantastic you are. Jordin Sparks is lucky to have not only have someone so in love with her, but also have a guy who’s a talented songwriter.

Even though Jason Derulo and Sparks aren’t engaged (yet), the R&B singer debuted a new track where he declares his love to the woman he loves and how he imagines his wedding proposal will be with the American Idol Season 6 winner. “We’ll forever be in love, so there ain’t no need to rush,” Derulo tells his lady. “But one day I wont be able to ask you loud enough. I’ll say, ‘Will you marry me?’” “Marry Me” is the second cut from his upcoming effort, Tattoos. Give the romantic track a listen below.

American Idol alums Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks, along with Anthony Mackie headline The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, but the gritty film is all about its young two newcomers. Skylan Brooks (Mister) and Ethan Dizon (Pete) are left to fend for themselves when their prostitute drug-addicted mom heads to the slammer. The boys received the strongest praise and response when the George Tillman, Jr-directed flick premiered at Sundance earlier this year.

The film also features new music by Alicia Keys. It will be in theaters in limited release starting October 11. Seeing Hudson all tatted up is definitely a far cry from her Dreamgirls days. Check out the trailer below.

Is there anything Kerry Washington can’t do? The woman is not only a talented actress, but has impeccable fashion sense and gorgeous to boot. Now we find out she has a pretty decent singing voice as well.

The 36-year-old Scandal star rose up to a karaoke challenge brought forth by Jordin Sparks. The Season 6 American Idol winner suggested they duet on “A Whole New World” from Aladdin since Washington is a hardcore Disney fan. These two need to head to a recording studio together immediately. Check out their impromptu sing-a-long-below. Side note: Is anyone else super excited for Scandal to return? I need my Gladiator fix.

Jordin Sparks Returns With A Breezy New Track

In: Donovan, Music

Jordin Sparks you’ve been missed. The 23-year-old American Idol winner is back and with a slammin’ new track. If you like Ariana Grande’s “The Way,” you’ll love “Skipping A Beat.” It’s a bit more urban yet still has the same great pop sensibility. The infectious mid-tempo track is the perfect vehicle to reintroduce Sparks back to mainstream radio.

As an aside, did you know Sparks co-wrote Grande’s Top 10 hit, but label issues prevented her from releasing it. Everything happens for a reason as they say. “The Way” introduced us to Mariah Carey’s heir apparent and allowed Jordin to improve on that track.

I was hoping Jordin would release “Before It Breaks” first. She duets with boyfriend Jason Derulo on that track. While we wait for that potential gem, check out “Skipping A Beat” below. You’ll find yourself humming the hook instantly.

American Idol 12: Top 5 Elimination Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

If there was a theme to the American Idol results show it was all about random cameos. Season 3 winner Fantasia and Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken were on the docket, but how random was it seeing Jordin Sparks with boyfriend Jason Derulo and Season 3′s LaToya London. It didn’t end there, Fall Out Boy was also sitting in the audience and Glee‘s Matthew Morrison popped up in the sponsored by Ford Focus segment. But the mother of all random appearances was Paula Abdul. She was on hand to praise Candice’s cover of “Straight Up.” Loved the moment when Abdul sat on the panel with Nicki and Mariah. Nigel, make this trio happen and get rid of Randy and Keith.

It was kinda hilarious how Clay got an entire segment about his philanthropic work and post-Idol career, while Fantasia’s package was all about updating us on London’s career. That said, Fantasia tore the house down with a performance of her killer new song, “Lose To Win.” Nicki Minaj was black girl snapping all over the place after her performance. Aiken did usual thing with “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

The five divas kicked off the night with a Donna Summer medley. Seems a year late and random, but I appreciated it. The girls were accompanied by backup dancers as they belted out “Last Dance”, “Dim All the Lights”, “Heaven Knows” and “She Works Hard for the Money.” Now onto the results.

Oops my bad. I wanted to talk about Jimmy Iovine first. He’s mentioned that he doesn’t want to be on the panel, but given all the airtime the show gives him, he might as well just suck it up and become an official judge. Not only did he comment on the performances during last night’s show, but once again he shared his thoughts during the results show. What gives? Now I’m done. Onto the results.
