LOS ANGELES, CA - August 14, 2009 - Platinum-selling 19 Recordings/Jive Records artist Jordin Sparks will join "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" as special guest on the second North American leg of the tour.  Sparks will perform on the U.S. portion of the trek including dates in New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Detroit, Chicago and more before concluding on September 26 & 27 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.  Previously announced opening act Kristinia DeBarge will join the tour for all dates; while up-and-coming acts Girlicious and One Call will appear in select cities (see full details below). For tickets, VIP packages and detailed tour information, fans should visit www.britneyspears.com or http://aeglive.com/.

 19-year old star Jordin Sparks rose to fame in 2007 when she became the youngest contestant ever to win American Idol. She performed the national anthem to an audience of nearly 100 million viewers at Super Bowl XLII, and was named Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist at the American Music Awards. Her current sophomore album, Battlefield, is in stores now and features the title track as Sparks' latest single. Her previous release, Jordin Sparks, featured platinum-certified Top 10 single, "Tattoo," and smash hit single "No Air."

"Britney's show is incredible and for me to be a part of it is a great opportunity," said Sparks.

"The Circus Starring Britney Spears," a dazzling display of music, dance, magic and theatrics, kicked off in New Orleans on March 3 and is the highest grossing tour of 2009 in North America to date. With its cast of nearly 50 dancers, magicians, clowns and acrobats, and a traveling staff of over 200, the 50 million dollar extravaganza includes an unprecedented 60 tons of equipment in 34 trucks for what has already proven to be a sheer electrifying musical event. According to Reuters, "The pop star...pulled out all the stops before a sell-out crowd of 16,400 to launch her much anticipated world tour."

    Why don´t you put a permanent link to vote at the VMA's in the front?

    I just checked Beyonce's website and they have a permanent link to vote ( www.beyonce.com). I think must of the Britney`s fan sites, Britney.com and BritneySpears.com should do the same.
    Many fans forget to vote. This is a good way to make people to vote everyday.
    PD: Sorry for my english.

    i dont get it .. you want us to come to the circus again - but why should I pay a lot of money to
    See the same show again ?

    We need to know that we will get something new for our money !

    So the article says that Jordin Sparks will perform on the US portion of the tour, including dates in Philadelphia, and others, but the list below says that Sparks won't be at the Philly show. Is it a typo or is it official that she won't be appearing at the Philly show?
