He included that "Young girl, likeable, and the singer won over the entertainer [Lewis]."[17] Four selected songs Sparks had performed on American Idol, including the season's coronation song, "This Is My Now", were made available on her self-titled EP, released on May 22, 2007, the day before the grand finale.[18] The coronation song "This Is My Now" peaked at number fifteen on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Sparks's first top-fifteen hit on the chart.[19] The following summer, Sparks took part in the American Idols LIVE!
