Sanjaya Malakar Says Good-Bye To American Idol


Sanjaya Malakar’s dream to become the next American Idol were ruined, when he got voted out on Wednesday night from the show. Sanjaya Malakar had generated quite a  debate in the US because of his strange hairdo, constant grin and the long run in the contest despite his poor singing abilities. Sanjaya managed to reach among the top in American Idol not quite due to his singing abilities but more due to his amiability and his hair-do that made teenage girl’s weak in their knees.

Sanjaya’s departure was a relief to the judges. Simon Cowell, who once threatened to quit if Sanjaya won, termed his performance the night before of Bonnie Raitt’s   Grammy – winning tune Something to Talk About as “utterly horrendous.”

Sanjaya was routinely savaged by Cowell as he developed into one of the weakest, most awkward   American Idol   finalists ever. Still, the gangly teen managed to outlast better singers by cultivating an unlikely fan base that helped him survive round after round of viewer elimination. Though his breathy, childlike singing voice paled in comparison with other finalists, his ability to stand out and his immense self-confidence  kept him in the competition. He consistently delivered the season’s most talked-about performances, even daring to sport a ponytail mohawk that added pizazz to an otherwise tepid rendition of No Doubt’s “Bathwater.”

When the result was announced on Wednesday night, Malakar wiped away tears and got a big hug from La Kisha Jones, the next lowest vote-getter. “I’m fine,” he told Ryan Seacrest.  “It was an amazing experience.”

“I can promise you: We won’t soon forget you,” Seacrest replied. Sanjaya Malakar then performed one last song, Something To Talk About. Putting his own twist on the song, the 17-year-old known for his pretty looks and ever-changing hairstyles ad-libbed: “Let’s give them something to talk about other than hair.”

Many had predicted that Sanjaya would make it all the way to the grand american Idol finale. Among Malakar’s supporters, radio jockey Howard Stern and the website, which has long promoted the show’s tone-deaf candidates. Howard Stern wanted to see to it that Sanjaya won the contest and thus ruined the image and reputation of American Idol as a show that produced  gifted talented singers.
