When Jordin was 17…she won American Idol! We knew Jordin was 17, because Randy Jackson never ever stopped reminding us. Heh.

Jordin’s 17th year was pretty exciting.  She was 16 when she auditioned for Idol in Seattle, turning 17 in December.  Her entire 17th year was DEFINED by Idol.   But you’ll have to watch the bonus clips to to learn Jordin’s thoughts on that seminal event in her young life. Go figure.

Watch the full episode and those bonus clips, after the jump…

  1. Saw this a few weeks ago.

    there was a preview a week ago but the full episode aired yesterday . the bonus clips also were posted online for the first time yesterday as well.

  2. I always liked Jordin,but she def. should have had more successes than she’s had(like Battlefield,and a couple other singles,but her album didn’t do what it should have),and def.better concert venues,and revenue.But,at least they’re trying to promote her anew-I saw her on The Suite Life On Deck last year,but that didn’t do much good.Same with another of my faves- Kellie Pickler,who I know was managed by 19M,cuz she said so on a radio interview,and she had that one hit with-Red High Heel Shoes,and then not much else.She deserved way bigger album sales,too. And she was one of the rare ones to be picked up by 19M,along with Carrie U.,Adam,Kelly C.,Alex Lambert,Chris D.and very few others.Kelly,as well as Jordin had it all- personality,plus talent-how they are not Bigger stars than they are is RIDICULOUS…
