Blake and JordinWhat would the Fourth of July be without hot dogs, fireworks, and Blake's beatboxing?

American Idol
finalist Blake Lewis will be joining third place finisher Melinda Doolittle, as well as this year's reigning champ Jordin Sparks for Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on NBC. The special will be hosted by Natalie Morales and Tiki Barber from NBC's Today Show. Country singer Martina McBride will also be on hand to perform "Anyway."

NBC says the fireworks display "will feature nearly 35,000 brilliant shells exploding over New York City" in the country's largest Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. The one-hour Spectacular will be televised at 9PM from New York.

I assume that's Blake Lewis in the photo, yes? When I saw that I did a double-take. I couldn't figure out why Jason Bateman was standing next to the winner from AI with a dopey grin on his face. He looks exactly like Bateman's stoner sports commentator character from Dodgeball.

Tiki Barber and Phillippi Sparks were teammates on the Giants for three years. Now Phillippi is known as "Jordin Sparks' father," Tiki is known as "the Today show's Tiki Barber," and Tiki has to kiss up to Jordin on this 4th of July show.

*Sigh* Makes a Giants fan like myself want to cry just a little bit.
