The star will join the second leg of “The Circus Featuring Britney Spears” tour, Britney announced on her official Web site on Friday.

The former “American Idol” champ will be a special guest on the U.S. portion of the tour, kicking off with three nights in New York City before heading to Los Angeles, Boston and more. The second leg concludes with a pair of shows in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

“Britney’s show is incredible and for me to be a part of it is a great opportunity,” Jordin said in a statement.

The revamped “Circus” will also feature opening act Kristinia DeBarge as well as select performances by Girlicious and One Call.

Jordin is singing in support of her sophomore album, “Battlefield,” which was released on July 21. The star, 19, just finished a tour with fellow teens the Jonas Brothers.
