Jordin Sparks In ‘Idol’ Driver’s Seat

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most 17-year-olds drive a hunk of junk, but not American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.

Sparks – who won the competition last Wednesday (May 23) – was happy to take home the Idol title, but was also revved-up about the brand new Mustang she got from Ford.

Says Sparks: “I love my new car, it’s so shiny. I really wanted the red Mustang and Blake [Lewis] really wanted the blue one, so it worked out perfectly.”

Sparks scored her new wheels at the perfect time too, since the teen queen just got her driver’s license last July.

Sparks explains, “I got my driver’s license right before I started the whole Idol journey. I was happy to get it, but I was even more excited about trying out for the show!”

After things settle down a bit, Sparks plans to cruise the streets in her red ride and show off her driving skills.

She adds, “I have no tickets yet – I’m a good driver! I didn’t do too good on my permit test, but I studied, passed, and did really good on the actual driver’s test in the end.”
