Jordin Sparks is out in full force, promoting her upcoming film, Sparkle, set to be released on August 17. She dropped by Live! With Kelly to talk about working with the late Whitney Houston, who plays her mother in the film. Also, she dishes on her boyfriend Jason Derulo and her recent weight loss.

The season 6 Idol winner stuck around after her interview to sing “Celebrate” from the Sparkle soundtrack. Check it out below.

    Love Jordin so much,she looks and sounds great, but the music form this mivie doesn’t thrill me. It reminds me of the songs from High /School Music.

    Wish she had sung it live and not lipsynced.  Love her anyway.

    Yeah I wish she didn’t lipsync it either but she looks great though.

    She was real busy this morning unless something was pretaped..She was on Today then apparently went to Kelly live at 9a – and then was back on Today in the 10a hour with Hoda & KLG.  I think she might be poised for superstardom.  Shes stunningly beautiful, can sing, and if she can act, its a trifecta.  She’s toured, done Broadway, and now this.  Plus her weight loss has gotten her magazine covers and opened her up to a bunch of roles.  Not having seen the movie, the descriptions are reminding me a little of Dreamgirls with the 3 singers and how JHud broke out.  Jordin even said her character begins as a songwriter in the background and ends up in front of everyone.  Sound familiar?

    Not sure if she’s lipsyncing since both videos are out of sync.  Is there a way to tell?

    People don’t lipsync on live with Kelly!!!! They have to do an altered 2 min version on the song.

    Didn’t think so.  Jordin is an incredible singer.  Her performance of I Will Always Love you at the Whitney tribute was exquisite.  Girl doesn’t need autotune or lipsync.

    I really like Jordin.  Hope this is a breakout role for her.
