Tonight is the first week without our dear Sanjaya on American Idol. The show will never be the same. He has made this the first season I've watched since the beginning. It wasn't just that he was a laughably bad singer, he was a great performer. Often I would skip through Phil or Lakisha's performance but Sanjaya was always a joy to watch. He played well to the camera and his look was always fantastic. I hope we haven't seen the last of him.
I do find it convenient that the week Simon said "It was funny for a while," was the week Sanjaya got kicked off. The previous week he wasn't even in the bottom three and now he's in last place? I called Shenanigans on American Idol! Maybe a whistle blower will come forward and expose the conspiracy. They should wait until after this week because it is a big charity episode.
Sanjaya returns home to Federal Way this week. Welcome Home, Sanjaya!
