Jordin Sparks Hospitalized for Appendicitis
Former American Idol champ Jordin Sparks has been hospitalized with acute appendicitis.
On Thursday, the singer, 19, Twittered from the recovery room that she was "feeling a little better but very sore. Thank you so much for your thoughts & prayers. It means so much & it's so powerful."
She then posted a photo of herself, clutching two teddy bears, in the hospital. "Smiling, resting & takin it easy!" she Twittered, adding that she expects to be sidelined for "the next week or so."
She was slated to visit Australia, where she was set to sing a duet with Australian Idol Guy Sebastian.
