Sparks will be busy during the week leading up to her prime-time performance on Tuesday night. She will be participating in the Celebrity Softball Game at Chase Field during the week of baseball festivities. She’ll be joined on the field for the celebrity game by the likes of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jason Aldean[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bernie Williams[/lastfm], Chord Overstreet, Nick Jonas of the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jonas Brothers[/lastfm]and others.
