"This Is My Now" is a song written by Jeff Peabody and Scott Krippayne. The top two finalists of the sixth season of American Idol (Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks) sang it during the May 22-May 23, 2007 finale shows. It was chosen over thousands of other entries in a songwriting contest for fan-written songs to be sung on the show. However, despite the new origins its slow tempo and inspirational theme is typical of contracted American Idol "winner single" material from prior years.

Lewis sang it first during the May 22 show and received only middling reviews from the judges, because the song was not Lewis's style of music. Sparks received better feedback and Simon Cowell stated that she "wiped the floor" with Lewis's rendition. Sparks reprised "This Is My Now" after winning the competition on the May 23 show.

Charts

"This is My Now" will not be released as a CD single; contrary to past seasons, the song will be digital only. Blake Lewis's version of the song was not released at all. Since her single did not debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Jordin joins Kelly Clarkson and Ruben Studdard as the only Idol winners to not have their debut song enter the charts at the top spot. The fact that this is the first time that the winner has not had his or her single physically released could hinder the song's performance on the charts compared to previous winners' singles.
