While many once-great R&B groups has come ill fated, Tyrese Gibson keeps his spirit high by forming a group with buddies Ginuwine and Tank. Not taking too much trouble naming the group the trio simply employ TGT, an abbreviation of Tyrese-Ginuwine-Tank.

"Imagine us putting all three of our worlds together for the ultimate R&B fan experience," Tyrese said during a phone interview. "Me, Tank and Ginuwine been talking about this forever. The reason why this makes sense is that besides all of us being R&B singers, we're all good friends. In this industry, you can't have a real conversation with a lot of people. It almost feels like you're having a conversation with somebody famous, instead of having a real conversation. Every time I see Tank, every time I see Ginuwine, we all had good energy regardless."

Finally after a shocking departure of Melinda Doolittle, American Idol announced the contestant who is worthy taking the 'supposed' place of Doolitle.

Through this winning, Jordin therefore, is recorded as the youngest American Idol winner by far.

Three songs-finale, it was by all means an obvious choice since Jordin has displayed a blast of performance last night with Blake only preceding her by beat-boxing in the song "You Give Love a Bad Name". Jordin meanwhile put all her vocal skill in the rendition of "Broken Wing" and has the first two rounds under her belt. For this cycle's theme song "This is My Now", Jordin certainly had a better idea of the song rather than Blake who was slightly all over the place with his rendition.
