Finally: Bye Bye Sanjaya!

They finally kicked Sanjaya off of American Idol!

I must confess; this is my first season of watching American Idol. I never could watch it before because of scheduling conflicts (and no, I don't have Tivo) but I always wanted to see what the big deal was about. Watching Sanjaya stay in the show for so long was pretty disappointing because he clearly wasn't a very good singer. He wasn't horrible, mind you. He had some talent, but in the sense that most of us have some talent, but he wasn't better than some that were voted off earlier.

I started losing interest in the show because it clearly became a popularity contest rather than a singing/talent contest and didn't even see last night's show, so imagine my surprise when I went to the web this morning and saw what clearly should have happened a long time ago.

I do hope he gets other avenues to pursue his dreams. A few more singing lessons and a hair stylist wouldn't hurt either.

Here's the clip of last night's show where he gets to go home.

Oh WOW! My student was addicted to American Idol and watched it religiously. He stopped having an interest in the show because Sanjaya never seemed to get kicked off even if he was horrible! I don't know how he lasted that long. I suppose it was to boost ratings? But if America is the one voting, then how could that be? It can't be 'fixed' if the votes are real. Does America really love Sanjaya??? I felt sorry for him, but certainly didn't think he deserved to be in the top 10. Hmmmm....
