At least there’s a silver lining to Kelly Ripa being M.I.A. (aka in the Hamptons) all week. Jordin Sparks stopped by “Live With Regis and Kelly” to promote her current Broadway run as Nina in “In the Heights.”
The Season 6 “American Idol” winner kicked off her three-month run in the musical by performing the song “Breath” on the talk show. Regis Philbin and substitute co-host Kristin Cruz seemed pretty impressed with the number — and so are we. Sparks sounds amazing and looks adorably sincere, belting out the tune.
All in all, it was a pretty big day for a show that’s typically pre-taped in late summer. Before Jordin took the stage, Jennifer Aniston stopped by to promote “The Switch” and got in trouble for a slip of the tongue.
Sparks, per usual, was on her best behavior. Have a look at her rendition of “Breath” right here — or check it out in person through November 16:
