JORDIN SPARKS (Season 6)
While Simon was dead-on in his assessment that spiky-haired beat-boxer Blake Lewis may have brought a little too much confidence to his audition, the guy’s rendition of ”Crazy” was skillful enough that he’d probably have a hit with it if he released it to radio tomorrow. I’m not sure I can say the same for precocious Jordin Sparks (who maybe should’ve waited a few years for her emotional maturity to catch up with her outsize voice), but [she] ought to be fun to watch during Hollywood week. —Michael Slezak, Jan. 18, 2007
