Is there something in the water? A severe throat ailment forced American Idol alum Jordin Sparks to cancel an appearance with Alicia Keys this week. Now, swollen vocal cords have forced Keys to cancel her own appearances.

She was scheduled to perform tonight in Cleveland. She also cancelled an apearance in Pittsburgh earlier this week as a result of the ailment. - J.R. Whalen
