Sanjaya Malakar Lives to Sing Another Day; Brandon Rogers Voted Out

Sanjaya Stays
We weren't surprised that Brandon Rogers went home last night. Starting the show, as he did Tuesday night, by forgetting lyrics and seeming generally bored is never a good sign. Brandon never seemed to capture the audience's heart.

The same certainly cannot be said for Sanjaya Malakar.

He was stuck in the bottom three contestants, but will return next week to anger the judges - along with any viewer that isn't tone deaf.

The final singer that was in danger of heading home was Phil Stacey. Again, hard to be shocked by this one. While a strong enough vocalist, Stacey lacks charisma ... and has a slightly frightening look that involves a bald head andwide, bug eyes.

But the man is safe for at least one more week. We'll see if he can rise up and threaten any of the finalists Tuesday night, similar to how Jordin Sparks did this week.

Yes Brandon's performance was bad. But at least he can sing better than Sanjaya.
I am outraged that Sanjaya is still on the show. He is not a good singer at all. As the judges have said, he whispers almost . .that's so that he wont have to actually sing properly and risk hitting really bad notes. While now he is just bland enough to garner the votes of little girls everywhere who don't care if he can sing.
He is only still on because the East Indian Community votes for him (not because he can sing well, but because he is one of them)One guy admits to he and his brother each voting 2500 times per show!!!!! see link below.
