And the winner of the American Idol Songwriter Competition is... Jordin Sparks.

OK, not technically, but....

After over 25,000 submissions and almost 500,000 votes, "This Is My Now" was selected by Idol fans for Blake and Jordin to perform on Tuesday night, and for the winner to record as his/her first single. For penning the tune, Seattle's Scott Krippayne and Jeff Peabody earn a publishing deal with 19 Entertainment.

"This song clearly resonated with the American Idol fans," says Idol e.p. Simon Fuller. "[It] speaks to why American Idol is so popular - the pursuit and achievement of dreams and taking advantage of the moment." If not taking advantage of the beat-boxing.

OK, it needs be asked: Who is your pick to win Idol ? Vote here.
