Jordin’s movie event – In case you haven’t heard, Jordin Sparks’ new movie “Sparkle” is heading into theaters, and she has received all sorts of publicity for it thanks to it being the final movie Whitney Houston filmed before tragically passing away earlier this year.

The video below is a new interview the season 6 champ gave to Billboard, and in it she talks Whitney, acting, music and so much more.

Adam Lambert’s video message – While the latest Adam Lambert video is not a performance by any means, it is a reminder to some of his fans as to where they can check out some of his latest updates from his trip to Japan. The season 8 star has been in Tokyo this week promoting his new album “Trespassing,” which has included giving a TV interview and doing a few performances.
