Sanjaya’s Big Mo

posted by on April 4 at 20:48 PM

The whole world’s watching

Sanjaya Malakar, the talk of “American Idol” fan sites and blogs, advanced on Wednesday to another round…. Rocker Gina Glocksen was sent packing from the group of nine finalists on the Fox television show, while Malakar, the 17-year-old whose finalist status has defied shaky performances and criticism from the judges, was easily voted through.

Malakar wasn’t even among the bottom three vote-getters in this week’s competition.

Fucking Stranger and your fucking no respect for fucking spoiler alerts.

Anyway, I watched the show before I came here because if it's no Ari ruining my life with comic spoilers someone is inevitably going to throw around some announcement about the AI.

Onto more important matters: American Idol is getting out of hand, just as everyone is predicting. I don't understand how Sanjaya can at all still be around. I disagree with Savage's theoretical "boy fucker" analogy. I think it's Vote for the Worst behind it all, but that could just be me.

But to not even have him in the bottom three?

Jesus Christ, I want to end it FOR THEM.

"...if he is not eliminated, and soon, the show will have lost its credibility."

I didn't know there was anything on television that had credibility.

What happened to the turd that won last year? Is Clay Gaykin an example of credibility? Actually, did he even win the competition???

This show looks an awful lot like how we elect a President.

This show is stupid and so is anyone who deeply cares.

This whole Sanjaya drama, and how he's being Grand Chawheed through each round by the audience as a joke, is an indictment of this show's entire concept.

Turn off your TVs and go do something for a change.

The show is called "American Idol" and people are idolizing this guy so what is the problem.

I remember loving David Cassidy as a kid. . he wasn't that great of a singer either but all the young girls I knew loved him too. Just saying. . .

I remember loving Bob Newhart as a kid...
I'm not going to poop until Phil Stacy, the bald one, gets voted off. He's disgusting.

David Cassidy was a great singer, whaddya mean?

I look to Sanjaya to help lead pop music away from the boring "diva" style -- male or female -- of singing, that has rendered even the cheesiest pop treats into some kind of faux-Pavarotti, faux-Aretha warblefest. Then maybe they can get some decent tunes, and guys like Sanjaya can sing them, and the proper arbiters of pop taste -- teenage girls -- can be restored to their rightful throne.

And the Simon Cowells of this world can be cast back into the pits of hell whence they came. Seriously, the only reason anyone listens to him is because he's got that Brit accent. He should be selling knives or vacuum cleaners at the Puyallup Fair.

They're not idolizing the guy, B. They're voting for him en masse because he sucks, as a huge joke.

Posted by Gomez | April 5, 2007 12:57 PM

# 18... I beg to differ with you. I, for one of many, AM very much IDOLIZING that hottie Sanjaya! Sigh....

David Cassidy was a GREAT singer!!!

The Partridge Family show was awful but they made really good pop music... in fact, i'm going to put on their greatest hits cd now...

Sanjaya is probably safe for a couple more weeks, but he's toast after that...every year there's a ridiculously bad singer who gets propelled along by 'Vote for the Worst' and dimwitted grannies and tweens who like this type of 'performer' but they always end up going bye-bye around the 6th elimination....Phil and Haley Scarnato are going in the next couple weeks, then it will be Manjina's turn...or maybe cute Chris, then Manjina...

I'm not an Idol watcher but Sanjaya is clearly very popular with teenage girls...and isn't that a big part of 'idol' status? How many music superstars have incredible voices vs. how many package themselves well?

On a different note. While visiting my parents, who watch FOX news, they actually had segment on Idol and called Sanjaya the BANE of their (the channel's?) existence. This is worthy of valuable NEWS time? Not that FOX is news. I'm just saying...
