Last night Sanjaya Malakar was voted off of American Idol. Truth be told, his time had come more than a couple of votes ago. And while it was time for Sanjaya to go, my bet is we haven't seen the last of him. He has a solid fan base of little girls and enough "cuteness" and talent to at least get a shot a something. What? I'm not sure, but something.
Two more things before we close: 1] Sanjaya took more flack, bad comments and teasing than any other American Idol contestant that I can remember. Sanjaya kept his sense of humor and showed class through it all. 2] Sanjaya's leaving puts a rest to the Howard Stern claim that Howard has the power [through his audience] to take Sanjaya to the finals and kill American Idol. Let's just hope that Stern can show the same class as Sanjaya now that Stern's mission has failed.
