Admittedly, even though we voted for her it sometimes slips our mind that Jordin Sparks won “American Idol.” Seriously, we remember Taylor Hicks before her.

But win Season 6 she did. She beat beatbox boy Blake Lewis! And on Thursday (Sept. 8) she followed up a weekend performance at the MDA Labor Day telethon by singing the National Anthem at the 2011 NFL Kickoff Game: Saints at Packers.

Love the ombre hair, Jordin.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
