"It's funny that everyone is asking is it tough that Sanjaya [moved on], I mean it's tough that all the other eight people did. It's not just Sanjaya," Gina said.
She also added: "He's just different. It's not that he's better or worse. He's Sanjaya and Jordin is Jordin and Chris is Chris and Blake is Blake; America, I guess, was through with me, and that's fine. I'm fine with it. I'm going to tour."
Sounds like a reasonable assessment to us. But still, come on, let's not compare Jordin Sparks to Sanjaya in any way please.
When asked what she thought about Sanjaya hanging in there every week, Gina Glocksen said: "I'm proud of him. He's hanging in there and he's not letting it get to him. He still comes out on stage every week and he gives his all."
Okay, Gina, but what about that hair? Do you have any styling tips for Malakar?
"Oh, no. No. It's funny; it's like a competition - who has better hair, and we're going to have a hair-off...I [the faux-hawk was] number one; I think it was awesome. It just set him apart from everyone else. It was crazy."
We can't argue with that.
