All I can say is this is finally over!! Read it and get on with life.
NEW YORK (AP) — 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.” (Watch Sanjaya get the boot )
“I can promise you: We won’t soon forget you,” Seacrest replied. 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.”
On Tuesday night’s show, Simon Cowell had slammed his performance as “utterly horrendous.” And for once, the notoriously mean judge was vindicated.
“I’m beginning to sense something here,” a grinning Cowell said when Malakar wound up in the bottom three. (Watch Cowell extract himself from hot water over an eye-rolling reaction )
