"American Idol" alum [artist id="2807016"]Jordin Sparks[/artist] hasn't forgotten where she comes from. In fact, the [article id="1560364"]season-six champ[/article] is so dedicated to the show that she still tunes in and votes to her favorite contestants. But she swears she isn't voting for anyone in particular, because it's just too hard to pick.
"It's really hard to say, 'cause there's a lot of really good people," she told MTV News. "I am voting — you guy should too! I am voting for 'Idol.' I actually vote for seven people each night, which is really sad, but I can't help myself."
And Sparks has good reason for dedicating so much phone time, "They're all so good," she said, adding that once she thinks she has it all figured out, the show goes and throws her a curveball and she has a new favorite contestant. "You think the guys are really strong, and then [article id="1606058"]Allison [Iraheta][/article] comes out, and it's like, 'OK, maybe not,' " she said about the singer's performance of the Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" during [article id="1607780"]Motown week[/article]. "She was amazing."
So far this season, past "Idol" winners [article id="1606844"]Kelly Clarkson[/article], [article id="1607235"]Carrie Underwood[/article] and [article id="1607852"]Ruben Studdard[/article] have come back to the show to perform. Sparks is hoping she, too, can return to the stage where she became a star.
"I hope so!" she said about trying to fit an "Idol" appearance into her pre-[article id="1606734"]JoBros tour[/article] schedule. "We're hoping maybe sometime in April, but we're not sure yet."
