Jordin Sparks - "This is My Now" Lyrics

Jordin Sparks -

It’s just a matter of time before they crown Jordin Sparks the season 6 winner of American Idol! Wednesday night, to be exact.

On the American Idol 6 finale, Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks battled it out over the song “This Is My Now.” The song was selected among the 25,000 submissions and almost 50,0000 votes as voted by Idol fans.

Blake‘s rendition of it was pretty gawd awful. Jordin did a much better job but still far from perfect. It’s a hard song to sing! All of the judges agreed that Jordin was the clear winner of the night. Even Paula. Sorta. “Everyone’s a winner!!!”

SPEAK UP: What did you think of the Idol finale?

JORDIN SPARKS“THIS IS MY NOW” LYRICS

There was a time I packed my dreams away
Living in a shell, hiding from myself

There was a time when I was so afraid
Thought I’d reached the end
Baby that was then
I am made of more than my yesterday’s

[Chorus]
This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment
But I look around
I can’t believe the love I see
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubts
That was then, this is my now.

And I have the courage like never before, yeah
I’ve settled forless now I’m ready for more
Ready for more

[Chorus x2]

This is my now

    woow, Blake really sucks! He can’t sing at all, he is ugly as hell (what’s wrong with his lips), and too top all that he has this cockines. I think it’s clear Jordin will win. She is not perfect, but at least she sings beautifully and she has such a pretty face

  • angelah

    it’s only 6:27 P.M. over here in the west co.

  • [eclec-tic]

    Jordin will win: Better vocals – plus the whole crying thing, that’s cheating how can you vote against a cute girl who cries? Lol

    Blake’s a better performer, but that last song [which fcuking sucked] did him dirty, he looked uncomfortable and awkward, and sounded like ish.

    That last song they sung was SANITATION! god-awful-garbage.

  • Jon

    Way to be kinda harsh Jared, lol. Yeh Blake doesn’t have the best voice, but you can tell he wasn’t comfortable with the song and he tried his best. It’s clear that Jordin did better then him in that song though.

    We all know that Jordin’s gonna win, so I see no reason for us having to bash on Blake. He’s had a good run on the show, and probably one of the most entertaining. Jordin will win, but I see that Both are gonna have great careers.

  • paula’s nose

    eh they both suck.

  • LIRA

    Jordin will win because she has the package, the face, vocal, charisma and very talented plus she is the youngest contestant that reach the finale of american idol. she sings better than anybody in american idol season..

  • Chloe

    That song was AWFUL! I think it was Blake sabatoge for them to have him singing that….totally awkward.

    Jordin will win – but I’d rather see Blake in concert. That guy is a damn good performer…

  • Me!

    Jordin did that song beautifully!

  • Colbert ROCKS!

    That is a song meant for Jordin and I guess that means that she will be the American Idol. Blake is not meant to sing those kind of songs that is why it is better that he doesnt win .. he can do his own thing and not be suck in what the record company wants … look at Chris tonite he rocked it (love him). Not a great fan of Jordin but glad Blake wont win so he can be himself, a performer.

  • Harrison

    You’d think they would pick a song that both the contestants could sing within their “style” without sounding completely subpar.

    I’ve liked Blake for awhile but his almost attitude over the song (“he’s not saying anything!”) might have left too sour a taste in people’s mouths.

    Oh, and Jordin can really stop singing “A Broken Wing,” which she’s been performing since she was on America’s Most Talented Kid… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq1QoedBC18

    MELINDA FOREVER

  • Strepsi

    RE: Jordin will win because she has the package

    I think if you looked more closely at Blake sitting in his tight home-made pants you’ll see that HE has the package! ;)

    She is a better singer, but who would I actually pay to download a song? Blake. Who would I pay to see perform live? Blake.

    Blake FTW

  • b

    i like both…jordin will probably win…however blake will probably be the most sucessful. jordin cud be successful if she makes like a whitney houston 80s/90s album something like that.

  • Chris

    Blake sucked go Jordin…..

  • Leanne

    Blake all the way…Jordin fits the idol profile but ever, Blake is a much better performer and the one to watch definitely! Love Blake :) plus the results r fixed anyway…if anyone wants to talk about good voice –> MELINDA is ur answer NOT JORDIN…jordin is far from melinda n despite the song choice or whatever in the finale…definitely BLAKE over jordin!!

  • ks

    Jordin has the better voice, but Blake is more fun to watch! I hope Blake wins, but if he doesn’t he’ll still be a big star. Look at Chris Daughtry. By the way…love his latest song “Home”.

  • [eclec-tic]

    Number 11 – are you serious? I hope not.

  • gg

    Blake is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vote for Blake!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets have something different for a chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am tired of the same people singing the same style of songs. Lets have some people that are willing to show something new

  • xo

    VOTE for BLAKE – do you know why?

    If Jordin had a single out on the radio – you wouldn’t be able to tell who the singer is. Her voice is GENERIC. you could mistake it for katherine mcphee’s song, another GENERIC performer. Jordin takes no risks, she just stands there. Jordin reminds me of Diana from season3 with Fantasia, as well. A forgettable person.

    Blake has a unique voice and you could probably tell the distinctness on the radio. He’ll be remembered. He has so much potential to do great things in different areas of music – r&b, pop, reggae, electronica.

    SO. go vote. 1866.43657.01 or 03 or 05

  • madalice

    Blake was FUCKED IN THE ASS with that song.

  • hr

    poor blake, that last song was so NOT meant for him. anyway, i hope he doesn’t win but gets his own recording deal. i like him, but you know an AI record wouldn’t work with his style. jordin’s a better “fit” for this type of competition… easier to “mold.”

  • John

    JORDIN’S LOWER REGISTER NOTES WERE HORRIBLE!!!

  • Linda

    I can’t help but think that Melinda would have delivered a goose-bumps making fabulously flawless version of that song. Jordin’s got talent but it is as yet raw. She is still young. Melinda should have been Idol’s winner. It’s the right time. Oh well, we can’t control the votes.

  • anon

    She should win. Yes Blake is a better performer, but this is a SINGING competition.

  • tanique33

    lots of people think blake can sing, and what is the problem. as much as AI would like to profes they are JUST a singing competition, we all know differently. and in today’s music scene, it’s not just about the voice. so, we can all get over it’s a singing competition angle. jordin was not the best singer this year, so that point went out the window when the best left.

    it was so slanted last night, it was ridiculous. i didnt even care about the last song, because it was so ridiculous that they’d sing the same song. choose two songs, there is a concept. blake is who i’ve always wanted to see win, and that hasn’t changed.

  • angelah

    loved Jordan’s rendition!

  • Darcy

    Jordin should win. For all of you who say that Blake is the better performer… can we look back to last seaon of Idol? Do you remember a guy named Taylor? everyone said he was a great entetainer. He is not doing well at all with his album. I would rather hear a good voice on the radio than to go and see someone in concert once a year if I am lucky enough to have them come to a city near me.

  • geniass

    Team Blake!

  • Brittany

    JORDIN SPARKS WON WOOHOO!! I LOVE THAT GIRL AND HER VOCALS..I’LL TELL U WHAT THOUGH THE BEAT BOXING THING WITH BLAKE AND HIS UNDERCOVER SPLIT PERSONALITY WITH BILLY BLUE I THINK VERY CREATIVE AND THAT TAKES GUTS..I SURE HOPE YA’LL CAN COME TO OHIO I WOULD LOVE TO SEE BEATBOXING BLAKE LIVE!!!

    CONGRATS JORDIN SPARKS!!

  • http://jordinsparks.com NORA SAWBO

    all i have to say right now is CONGRATS to jordin she kill it…blake can not go against jordin …they need someone way better than blake to go against jordin..im sorry blake but this year adol is for JORDIN SPARKS…JORDIN U R THE BEST SINGER EVER

  • chante’

    i’m glad that jordin sparks won..and thank you to whomever wrote the lyrics to the winning song..i hope that this song is included on her first cd or a cd single..

  • chante’

    oh yes, i hope that song, “i, who have nothing” is on her first cd as well. she nailed that both times..

  • chante’

    the show..most of it could have been done without..the awards for loudest costume and the “bush baby” comment..could have done without those. of course, this is the season finale, with fox taking 3 places in the weekly and season top 10 shows, (AI 1 & 2, and House, M.D), they can do whatever they want. who would have believe 20 years ago that the Fox network would do soooo well. ABC with 2 shows, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Desparate Housewives”, and CBS with the rest, they wish they had what Fox has!!

  • darline

    i’m glad blake lost. he can’t sing. Jordin is way better singer then he can even dream of. i woild rather go to a concert and watch Jordin then blake. He needs to grow up with all the beat boxing crap.

  • bay area girl

    I my gosh I really love Jordin. She is the best and she deserve to win. Blake should have went home long time ago. Jordin can really sing and she is very talented. I really enjoyed the song she song with Ruben.

    CONGRATULATIONS JORDIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Craig

    Perfectly put Darcy.

  • r

    singing competition ? (what a joke)if it was then how do you justify Sparks over Doolittle, Jordin blowing both songs in one night and still making it through, Malakar passing up better voices than his ? it’s a popularity contest and that’s who won, anybody who really believes otherwise is just fooling themselves. this season put the final nail in the coffin for me,just give the thing to the one the show producers want in the first place and quit pulling this show along as the search for Americas’ best singer because it’s not. there were alot of better singers than Sparks but Lewis held the best for entertainer. I can recall a Lewis or Doolittle performance in my head, as well as some of the others but none for Sparks (except for the dumb kuntry song, chicken wing)I can see her doing great in that field of musick. . .

    jordin your the bomb baby i have been voting for you since you enter hollywood keep it up baby soon as you release your album i have to get it.malienda,lakesha,stephane and blake your guys are still winners i love you allllll peace………………………..?

  • Doc

    So do you think the judges really listened to ALL the songwriter submissions in such a short amount of time? Pardon me if I sound Simon-esque, but I was expecting a much more spectacular and powerful song for the finale. Where was the gospel choir? Where were the special effects? Where were the inspirational lyrics that lifted you to new heights? The song was way too subdued and “country” for a competition aiming to crown the next pop star…

  • Miranda McIsaac

    i’m glad that jordin won i think she diserved it and especially with that song i loved it way to jordin!!!

  • Patricia

    i think that its nice that jordin won. yes, but blake’s a good performer. blake is unique. now based on the last song, jordin did better, of course. that song only suited jordin’s vocals. they should’ve picked 2 songs, like last year when kat and taylor had individual songs that suit their voices well.

    jordin and blake are both very talented. so i, too, don’t see a reason for anyone to be so hard on blake.

  • Ashley

    um i say that whoever left that is crap because they did a hell of a lot better than you could ever do. it takes a lot of heart just to get up there and sing in front of people, and it was them two left. so id have to say they did pretty damn well to make it to the final two out of how many people? grow up guys. they are both great singers and sing with heart. some songs arent meant for people but he wasnt horrible. congratulations to the both of them!

  • Ashley

    and the previos comment goes to the very first person that commented..

  • catherine

    american idol?
    hhmm… i think blake should have won, jordin has a golden voice,yes. but it’s american ‘IDOL’ not american ‘SINGER’. like, would you idolize or like to be a girl/guy who is fat? i think not. even if american idol was a singing competition, the best singer already went home. melinda doolittle. but she wasn’t that pretty…that’s why she was voted off.
    but if you say ‘IDOL’, it’s really blake. no questions. think about it.
    did we make the right choice? maybe. but blake rocks! go blake!
    -B-L-A-K-E-B-L-A-K-E-B-L-A-K-E-B-L-A-K-E-B-L-A-

    and he’s not like taylor hicks….
    blake is way much better in performing, singing and uuhhmm…duh? entertaining…
    why jordin anyway? well… she’s PRETTY GOOD…. but blake is….WAY AWESOME!

  • catherine
