Jordin Sparks Snags The Coveted Spot Opening For NKOTBSB

Jordin Sparks is one LUCKY girl: She gets the coveted opening slot for the massive joint summer tour of New Kids On the Block and the Backstreet Boys! The American Idol alum will be joining the supergroup NKOTBSB on the road for their summer tour, which kicks off May 25th.

NKOTBSB “spokesmen” Joey McIntyre and AJ McLean premiered their single “Don’t Turn Out The Lights” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Tuesday morning, as well as gave Ryan (and listeners!) the inside scoop on their opening act.

Jordin was more than happy to share her thoughts and immediately tweeted:

While it may have come as a (BIG) surprise to NKOTBSB fans, the pairing should be a good fit. This isn’t Jordin’s first time opening for such a big-name act: in 2009, she opened up for Britney Spears. Nor is it the first time NKOTB had a female open for them: Lady Gaga was the opening act on one of their last reunion tours. Rad huh?!

What do you think of Jordin opening up for NKOTBSB? Do you think she’s a good fit? Who are your dream openers for the NKOTBSB tour?
