We're already down to the TOP 13 contestants on American Idol this season -- and unfortunately, one talented hopeful will be sent home tomorrow night. 

Former Idol winner Jordin Sparks, who has put out two successful albums since taking home the title and is working on her third, sat down with Hollywire's Katie Krause to talk about this season of the hit singing show.  The 21-year-old starlet dished out some advice to this year's singers, revealed she has been watching (and voting!) and chatted about the new panel of judges! 

Check out HW's exclusive video!

Katie also chatted with Jordin about her upcoming album, a possible Glee appearance -- and had the priviledge to go behind-the-scenes of the singer's brand new music video for the upcoming Disney flick, African Cats!

That interview along with all the behind-the-scenes footage won't be up until April -- but keep checking back to Hollywire in the meantime for all the Idol news you could ever want!
