Sanjaya For Idol! - March
This is the Block Party, and I am having a moment. Yes,
this column may be a bit off the deep end and to all the
people who read this I will come back to my senses
somewhat after a bit of a rant so hear me out.
I want Sanjaya Malakar to win American Idol. Yup, you
heard me right.
Now I know what you all are thinking...hes lost it,
hes nuts. Hes joined votefortheworst.com or something
like that. No, I am saying that because I want to prove
that the American people can actually vote a no-talent
It has happened in Britain. On the second season of Pop
Idol in 2003, Michelle McManus won the show despite not
having the talent to win it. Her recording career has
been less than successful at best.
So what does that have to do with this season of AI?
Every year there has been at least one person who is so
far and away the worst of the bunch. Kevin Covais, Scott
Savol and others have been so horrifically bad and have
gotten away with it to different degrees.
Now, Gordon has his Chaos Theory (TM), and he is usually
on the money. And he always asks this question...did X
(in this case Brandon Rogers and Stephanie Edwards) have
a legitimate shot to win American Idol...?
But that isnt the question that should be asked. The
question that should be is that...has American Idol gone
so far away from the roots of Season 1 that the balance
has shifted from singing talent to performance? Are we
taking away spots from legitimate talents when you have
people like Sanjaya staying on?
I said in my Idol column two weeks ago, that this is the
weakest class since Idol 3. A lot of people agree with
me. But when you have people like Sanjaya staying on, it
makes for a bad entertainment experience.
But you know what, I want Sanjaya to win it all.
Substance over talent, style over singing. Prove me
right, America. Prove to me that you have no judge of
talent at all. Prove to me that you can eliminate
Melinda Doolittle over him. Prove to me that the 12-17
year old female market is what conquers all.
You can do it...I know you can.
You can join the Block Party
