  1. I had heard some bootleg versions of her singing this and didn't care for her rendition, but after seeing this I think it's one of the best I've ever heard. She acted the hell out that.

  2. I saw her premiere night. The raw emotion she brought to the stage was absolutely incredible, and she continues to sway our emotions here as well.

  3. This is straight up 4 minutes and 49 seconds of heartbreak!!!! My soul hurts this was so powerful and THE LOWER KEY!!!!!!!

  4. I've been loosely keeping up with her career since her time on Idol. It's really incredible how much poise and polish she's developed over the years. She has truly tried to improve her craft as she's matured.

  5. One of the best performances of this song! It was the first time, despite loving the song, that I actually 'Heard' it! Fantastic .

  6. Honestly, when she was first announced I didn’t think she’d be as amazing as she is in this role. Her rendition of this is stunning, and she brings something different in this performance that I haven’t seen in a Jenna before, which I think is brilliant! Well done to the casting director of this show!

  7. Wow she really comes through beginning in the second verse and just breathes her own life into this version. Just when I thought I didn’t need anymore pie…🙌

  8. Ok uhm I gotta just exit for a minute. This is screaming YOU HAVE NO TALENTTT. 💀😂 but bro beautifulllll.

  9. I love every single Jenna there’s been, and I don’t have a favorite because they’ve all been unique. Jordin is one of the very few Jenna’s who is actually a mother and I think that is definitely shown here.

  10. 22??? Come on!
    This is one of the best rendition I have heard! Crisp, clean and effortless!
    I didn't expect this of Jordin, simply because I thought Jessica is the best Jenna, but Jordin gave me the same, if not more (her low notes blew me away) level of emotion and warmth. Great acting and superb voice!

  11. Seldom ever is a song written that allows abundant room for emotional performances…SHE USED TO BE MINE is just such a song and certainly one of the most perfect ones ever conceived …thanks to Sara Bareilles. And Jordan Sparks just used that emotional room to the max…AMAZING!!

  12. I had to watch it twice. The first time, I was too distracted by how beautiful she is. The second time, I scrolled down to not see and just listen. Yeah, she's great! Might have to see this AGAIN!!!!

  13. I’ve been waiting for this and she did not disappoint. Goddam her rendition gave it another life! Well done girl ! 👊🏻

  14. I thought it was going to be different… but I really don’t care it’s a half step down, this is magical 😂💜

  15. Jordin has always had a remarkable voice. Very delicate and unique. This song was a brilliant match for her vocals.

  16. I’ve been listening to so many versions of this and my husband’s starting to ask who hurt me 😂😂😂😂

  17. HER ACTING HAS GOTTEN SO MUCH BETTER I AM SO PROUD😍😍😍🥰🥰🥰

    One thing though, thoughts on the belted last line?

  18. Had the AMAZING chance to see Sara Bareilles perform this song last night & absolutely CRUSH IT.
    So to see Jordin Sparks perform it the same day & OBLITERATE the same song in her own way is just beautiful.
