While most "American Idol" contestants wind up releasing bargain bin albums and playing the country fair circuit, every now and then they land something BIG -- whether it's through music or, in some cases, acting.
Jordin Sparks, who has had a fairly successful singing career since winning Season Six back in 2007, makes her big screen debut this weekend in "Sparkle."
The movie, about a Motown girl group, plays a lot like "Dreamgirls" -- the movie which fellow "Idol" alum Jennifer Hudson nabbed an Oscar for.
But for every Jennifer Hudson, there's a Kelly Clarkson. Remember the cheesefest that was "From Justin to Kelly"? Clearly, some singers should just stick to their day job.
