America has, as they trendily now say, been Sanjaya'd.
Sanjaya Malakar has become American Idol phenomenon like no other.
He is the reason the show's ratings are high this year, even though he's the singing equivalent of William Hung. But, with his sister Shyamali's scantily clad pictures becoming an online rage, the Sanjaya flame continues to grow.
Indian fans support him. Votefortheworst.com champions his cause. And Simon Cowell says he'll quit if Sanjay wins.
He's in the Top 8, but we ask you the big question: Do you want Sanjaya to be the next American Idol?
