Inside Idol's Finale: Blake and Doug, "Crying Girl" and More
In the end, the only person who didn't know that Jordin Sparks was going to be crowned the newest American Idol was... Jordin Sparks.
After host Ryan Seacrest (finally!) got around to announcing Sparks as the winner, the 17-year-old high-school junior from Arizona said that she had no idea she was the odds-on favorite to join Kelly, Reuben, Fantasia, Carrie and Taylor as America's favorite singer. "I've been in a bubble," Sparks told TVGuide.com after being crowned the youngest Idol to date. "When I went home [after making the finals] there was so much support, but that was from my home state. I had no idea what everyone was thinking."
Sparks needed to go no further than the red carpet outside the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood and Highland Wednes
