Sanjaya stays on Idol again! Haley heads home...
American Idol has narrowed it down to seven, and one of those contestants is still Sanjaya Malakar! Whether America really does love him or whether people are voting for him as a joke. This tone deaf "singer" is one lucky man!
As Ryan Seacrest went through each contestant determining their fate as to whether or not they were one of the bottom three vote getters, he kept asking Sanjaya to stand-up and sit-down. At that point I knew he was safe. There is no way that they will poke fun at him, then vote him off. No one is really that cruel, and they know they would get hell over it if they did. Meanwhile, it all meant that the person who was standing with Sanjaya would take the final bottom spot.
After revealing that Phil Stacey and Haley Scarnato had taken two of the spots, Ryan pitted Sanjaya on Chris Richardson (the Justin Timberlake impersonator) meaning that Chris would land in the bottom three. As I predicted, Chris took the third spot.
Ryan Seacrest sent Chris back to safety quickly. Was this Idol's way of sending out a message that Chris and Sanjaya are splitting the teeny bopper vote? This could very well rally the teen girls and pedophiles to pick a side knocking the other one off the show.
After Jennifer Lopez did her Spanish lip sync act, Seacrest came back to announce that Haley Scarnato was heading home.
Next week, the American Idol contestants will go country with Martina McBride.
