Seventeen-year-old Jordin Sparks became the clear favorite to take the latest American Idol contest when results are announced tonight (Wednesday) after she nailed a ballad, "This Is My Now," written for the show's online songwriting contest, while competitor Blake Lewis performed the same song unimpressively. "You just wiped the floor with Blake," Idol judge Simon Cowell told Sparks. The show drew a huge 16.3 rating and a 25 share. Nevertheless those numbers were 15.1 percent below those from the comparable Idol performance finale a year ago.
