So ... Sanjaya is still on this season's American Idol. He does get a lot of support. He also receive a lot of flak from critics. What's your opinion on "Sanjaya's" talent and staying power? Would you vote for him?

I really don’t know what he has that he’s still on the IDOL. Maybe because he’s different? Refreshing to look at? I really don’t know. But talent wise, I don’t think what he has is enough for me to vote him as the next American idol. It's cool that another fellow asian reached this far in that kind of a competition, but I think he’s more of a pop superstar. I really don’t know, he’s so different that I feel he will go further with this competition regardless of whether or not I like him or not.

You are right catcai. Maybe he is just different. Different enough to become the next AI ... don't you think :)

I think he's a nice kid, but I don't like how he sings. He sounds ok, but it seems unemotional, kind of boring. I think his antics and votefortheworst.com and Howard Stern are why he is staying well and he is nice and people like that. I have not voted for him once during the competition and do not plan on it.

Yes. If the criteria for winning the contest is based on being nice ... then he's already holding the trophy.

I don't enjoy listening to him sing, or perform. I am not a fan of his. I feel bad for him, acually. Everyone is saying that he is only getting to stay on because the "vote for the worst idol" website is helping him stay on. If that is true, then his feelings are going to be hurt. Even if he can't sing, he doesn't deserve to be treated that way. I think it is mean. I wouldn't vote for him, because I don't feel like he has talent. I would not put money into back him up to record an album because I don't think it would sell.

Yah. the poor boy is suffering from his own popularity. I hope he does gain the talent to back it up.

Sajaya in my opinion is the worse singer on Idol this year-- I should clarify- The worse to make it to Hollywood and the finals 12. He has staying power though- He wasn't even in the bottom 3 last week. My mind tells me he won't be in this week either.. Should he be?? Hel! Yes! He's terrible- Just a kid.. Give him a few years he will get better I'm sure- I would never vote for him- I think I'd vote for anyone else first! ANYONE!
