"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."

Jordin Sparks Pocketing 6th American Idol's Crown


May 24, 2007 02:52:46 GMT


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

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.
