THIS

NEEDS

TO

STOP:



The horror. The horror.

Yikes. I don't watch, but I heard about the horror that was Sanjaya's performance.

Gwen Stefani oughta sue for libel/slander.

I've never watched AI before this season, but Sanjaya is too much. How did he even make it to the final 12? Its like somebody somewhere felt sorry for him, though it certainly could not have been his stylist.

There is a grassroots effort to keep him on the show (see link already provided) Chris wasn't much better but it's time for Sanjaya to join the William Hung Tour 'o Losers!!
Go LaKisha, go Melinda...go home Sanjaya!!

I decided right away that I like LaKisha best and want her to win. Having said that, I love -- I really do love -- Sanjaya. I think Simon is dead-on: He's in his own universe, what they say doesn't matter anymore, and people like him.

Sanjay is not a fantastic singer, but neither were many of the other top 24 (I still don't get the appeal of Scruffy or Baldy). This show wants to believe it's about merit (the "best" singer/performer "deserves" to win), but if that were the case, I don't see why they cut the Giraffe but kept Sanjaya around. I think they wanted to keep it interesting.

I don't think Sanjaya will get much further without bringing a spectacular song. The crying preteens don't have THAT much allowance to spend on texting. And I'll be sad to see him go. The boy is having fun. And I love that.
