Johnjay and Rich of 104.7 KISS FM were backstage with ‘American Idol’ season six winner Jordin Sparks and Jesse McCartney at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona on August 8th. Rich wasn’t able to play guitar for Jesse on ‘Leavin’, but they worked something out so they could play backstage before the show. Their jam session started out with ‘Leavin’, then Jordin walked in after hearing the commotion. Jesse then performed a cover of OneRepublic’s ‘Apologize’, a song he learned after Ryan Tedder was too sick to perform at a show in Redmond, where Jesse filled in. The morning show’s producer Obi-Wan Kenobi then covered Michael Jackson’s ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ with Jesse and Jordin singing background. The session wrapped up with Jordin getting on guitar to cover Jewel’s hit ‘You Were Meant For Me’.
