Jordin Sparks

Jordin Sparks was only 17 when she broke out onto the music scene in 2007, after winning American Idol during season 6. Not only did the Phoenix-bred star win fans over with her golden pipes, but she charmed the world with her enormous smile. While the Grammy-nominated songstress has achieved success on the airwaves with a handful of top-10 singles, such as "No Air" and "Battlefield", she's also belted out lyrics on the Great White Way -- in 2010 she made her Broadway debut in the musical In the Heights. Sparks made her feature film debut in Sparkle as a teenage Motown sensation, sharing the big screen with Whitney Houston
