'American Idol' says sayonara to Sanjaya

NEW YORK - Sanjaya Malakar, the under-talented but unflappable singer who horrified and captivated millions in his improbable "American Idol" run, was finally voted off the show Wednesday night.

When the result was announced, Malakar wiped away tears and got a big hug from LaKisha Jones, the next lowest vote-getter. "I'm fine," he told Ryan Seacrest. "It was an amazing experience." ADVERTISEMENT

"I can promise you: We won't soon forget you," Seacrest replied.

OK, the freakshow is over, folks! Sing it from the highest mountains! Sanjaya: Your fries are up! DING! DING!

OK, I never watched American Idol, but this guy has been all over the place. It hasn't helped my stomach any. So I'll take this occassion to be thankful about his being dropped from the show. Maybe now those images of him doing the Hula will stop haunting my few moments that I get to enjoy watching something on TV...

Don't you believe that...it's only a matter of time (and probably not long) before someone gives him a record deal to make a quick buck while he's in the glow of his 15 minutes of fame. It happened before with that guy that sang off key so badly.

You got me thinking, and sure enough I went to YOUTUBE, where they have tons of old "Gong Show" clips for viewing. I had to see a few, including the appearance of "Oingo Boingo" from 1976. Funny stuff - check it out some time!

He wouldn’t survive in “Bollywood” for a New York minute.

Didn’t Chuck Barriss work for the CIA or something? I seem to remember some kinda underworld-mafia-controversy or whatever.

Maybe not. He could portray Ra’s brother in a movie sequel to Stargate (the original movie) as long as they dub over his voice. Or a sequel to “The Crying Game”. The same crazies that voted for him would flock to his movies.

I’m sick of hearing about this dude. I don’t care a whit about American Idle. I think they turn out some good artists, but I’m sick of all the hype and publicity. Day after day I hear this guy on the morning news. I’m sure it won’t quit now.

Sorry that you allowed something so unimportant to even enter your consciousness. How sad for you!

Hope you feel better now.

My daughter was talking about this guy and so I watched and did the "youtube" search.

He seems harmless. I didn't hear him cuss, yell, or do anything other than smile and put his hair up in some weird ass ways.

I think the guy knew he wasn't the best singer, but just rode the popularity thing for all it was worth. Pleasant smile, kinda effeminate, reminds me of the Bobby Sherman, Davy Jones, Bobby Goldsboro, Keith Partridge, Ricky Nelson types....nice hair, nice smile, not overly "masculine" but the young girls loved and love them cause they aren't threatening. Kind of like a boy that is really a girlfriend. hahahahahaha.

I watched it last year for Taylor whom I enjoyed. But this year AI has been incredibly boring and the talent unbelievably banal.............I’m just surprised Sanjaya didn’t win, really..............

“Unbelievably banal”

Funny, I wouldn't’t use those words to describe the Dolittle gal; she’s a powerhouse, very talented,IMO.

I started calling him Sangina almost out of the gate. I did enjoy looking at his sister early on.

Jordin Sparks and Blake Edwards are the only ones competing that I find interesting.

Maybe Sanjaya and William Hung will go on tour and record duets together.

LOL! That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw him on Idol—he looks like the guy from The Crying Game. Poor kid. I’m sure he’s just an effeminate heterosexual.

Perhaps they can make an album covering the best of Cream and Barry Manlow.

Don’t know what you meant by that...but India’s music far exceeds what you know...that I can guarantee.

My wife started calling him Vagina. That's when I really got sick seeing him on AI.

I am referring to the competition overall. It just doesn’t hold my interest this year and I probably won’t watch it again - they threw out people better than the stupid Sanjaya............
