Sanjaya Rocks the Ponyhawk

Sanjaya Rocks the Ponyhawk

He did it again tonight, didn’t he?

American Idol‘s Sanjaya Malakar sang his own rendition of No Doubt‘s “Bathwater” and sported the FUNKIEST HAIRDO TO DATE — A PONYHAWK! Part-mohawk, part-fauxhawk, part-BEAST!!!!!

  • Randy said, “Dude, I’m speechless. Every time. It’s weird, you got the dog speechless. The hair is definitely interesting. I like the kinda mohawk look. At the end of the song, you sang that one long note at the end and you sang a little run. You actually can sing if you just put it out there.”
  • Paula said, “If you had the gumption. If you had the ability to totally go for it, it would fit the wackiness of the fauxhawk. To watch you on stage and not go for it, we’re kinda like come on, you can do it.
  • Simon said, “I presume there was no mirror in your dressing room tonight. I don’t think it matters anymore what we say. I genuinely don’t. You’re in your own universe and if people like you, then good luck.”

And in response to Simon‘s comment regarding his ponyhawk, Sanjaya quipped, “You’re just jealous you couldn’t put it off.”

    Sanjay did o.k tonight, as Paula and Randy mentioned he can sing, he just needs to go all out and believe in his voice

  • magnus

    I’ve never watched this show but that is easily the f*cking dumbest hair I’ve ever seen.

    Congrats douchebag.

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    i kinda of heart him. dunno why.

  • Canada

    Sorry to post again but I wanted to mention that every week am I always looking forward to seeing what Sanjaya is going to do next, I remember during the commercial break when Ryan anounced Sanjaya is next, and I was all excited, people love and I believe the people that are against him will grow to like him as the show progress, he can sing

  • sue

    WTF! Sanjaya knows he’s a joke , he didn’t even try . TERRIBLE! Simon is right, it doesn’t matter what the judges say when it comes to him.
    gina and chris richardson were my favs tonight. Dolittle and Lakiesha always sound good but they are so predictable. i was looking forward to blake singing that awesome cure song ,but it feel flat:(

  • Hubbell

    He’s pathetic. It would be merciful for him to be eliminated tomorrow night. So many in the media make fun of him.

    But yes, I do feel sorry for him.

  • angelah

    ponyhawk? :roll: hehe

  • bdj

    Sanjaya, Sanjaya is my man, if he can’t win American Idol, no one can.(just Kidding!!!!). I think he should go to the next round for that ponyhawk alone. Only a true diva can get away with wearing that hairstyle. Sanjaya wasn’t bad, not great, but most of the contestants were not great tonight either. Sanjaya to the next round. Still rooting for Melinda to win.

  • Jamie

    WTF! Sanjaya needs to go! What an ass!! Who in the hell is voting for this loser???

  • Joe

    Sanjaya’s not the best singer, but instead of talent, he’s got an amazing fanbase.

  • TskTsk

    Isn’t there like a whole website dedicated to keeping him on the show to prove a point that AI is bogus? Don’t know if that’s true but I read that somewhere.

  • Courtney

    Vote for Gina 188idols03 or Blake 1866idols08…all others to me are either crazy or boring.

  • racy lacy

    That was probably one of the worst performances on AI ever. He must win!

  • tanique33

    simon had it right, it doesn’t matter at this point, people will vote for him. what pisses me off if no one is going to support the kid off the show, so what is the point really?

    he is just a waste of time, personally. i wish i could laugh at him, it would at least be something.

    BLAKE is it, for me.

  • adfa

    OMG OMG I LOVE U SANJAYA…i want ur babies

  • Stephen


  • Lukasiewich

    Sangaya is a JOKE. People are actually saying he can’t sing but he’s interesting?? Well let’s get 10 pornstars on there, they will sing like crap too but WHOA will they ever be interesting.

  • Stephen

    What the Hell is he doing here… Doolittle is going to take it…

  • Who Cares

    I cannot imagine why this guy is still on AI…America has proven they have no clue what constitutes talent…I don’t know who votes for him…at this point, I don’t even care anymore…I have been unimpressed with the talent minus about 3 people…he proves that this is not a singing competition…in fact, I have no clue what this show is anymore…so disappointing…if he can stay over Stephanie from last week, then that should be the answer to American voters right there…we prove we have no freaking clue in politics or singing…

  • J3$$!C@

    I dont take this show seriously. I watch it for the laughs and entertainment. If it was, then Melinda is already the winner. But she probably won’t win. The only time Idol got it right was with Kelly and Carrie. It is not a singing competition but rather a popularity contest. If you can’t beat them, join them. Go Sanjaya!

  • suzy

    wow he just get better each week !

  • Not voting

    I think people were voting for him because he is the worst and the show kinda sucks this year. I have voted every year but this year is just blah for me.

    I kinda like Blake and Lakisha though.

  • Sanjaya sucks

    I hate this guy. he has done nothing but suck. Jordan Sparks, IMHO is the best. right there with Doolittle! I love her.

  • sue

    the voters have made a mockery out of the show this season.

  • sue

    the only thing i look forward to when he comes out are his ridiculous hair-dos

  • Jon

    Sanjaya is deff great entertainment, but the kid can’t sing. He clearly forgot his words at one point. He’s the joke of the show, and that is why it isn’t taken very seriously this year. hopefully people will realize that the people who deserve a chance to be thier will stay and others (sanjaya) will leave

  • Santeezy


    HELLA funny!!

    Why did Gwen look like a “GIRL NEXT DOOR” in that clip.

  • Fan-O-Sanjay

    I thought Sanjaya was great tonight, I think people are too overly critical of him. Is he the best, no, but he’s not as bad as everyone seems to believe… He has my vote…

    p.s. I love the hair…

  • [Fug Face Man!ston]

    I love laughing at this gay loser. Go Sangaya! I think its cool that people are keeping him around so we can have something to laugh at every week, with him off the show, it would be a serious contest, but with him there, we get a few mins of comic relief.

    with that said, his voice sucks, this performance was horrible, the hair was even worse. I think Sangaya is making fun of America… while we all make fun of him. I hope he stays.

    Oh yea, I don’t know who his stylist is, but they need to chill with these clothes, he’s a sweet tart, he should dress like it. this tough, rough, rock, hip image looks ridiculous on him.

  • char

    i kinda love the sanjaya too. esp after tonight! more power to the hair!

  • Simon

    Im impressed with his hair myself :) I want to be a Sanjaya myself!!! He’s supper cool, imagine him on MTV yo! Yahh I couldnt see it but lets give him a try hahahaha :) Lets KEEP on voting hehe it’ll be so funny though his first music video… I wonder how his hair would be!! Sanjaya brotha you do suck but I want laughs when you appear on MTV!

  • New York Pundit

    As long as this zipperhead keeps swallowing Cowell, he will make it to the next show…

  • Mary

    I am laughing so hard that is very funny :D :D :D

  • LDT

    I think it was a self sabotage. This year has no one remotely interesting. I’ve watched the show since it’s been on. This is the worst. year. ever. Sanjaya has the most name recognition though and should ride that train all the way to the bank.

  • Piper

    he’s everything this show is and more. i love it!

  • lurker opinion

    Go Sanjaya Go Sanjaya
    He the reason to watch. The other people on the show are fine singers. But not stars that are going to sell CDs. I don’t look forward to seeing any of them but Sanjaya. Frankly IMO AI may be close to jumping the shark.

  • Geena

    I heart Sanjaya! :)

  • samd

    he probably has some issues. he thinks he can pull anything off! Pathetic mentality and yet people like…weird

  • Fleasha

    His talking voice reminds me of a young Michael Jackson. Too bad his singing voice don’t! Get outta here, Sanjaya.

  • samd

    now all he needs is a helmet to attach that thing on his head then he can go to an ancient Grecian war..just like 300. Honestly he looks like a pathetic loser who thinks he can pull anything off.

  • anon is pushing sanjaya this year. last year they pushed for taylor hicks. Howard Stern even is asking all his listeners to vote for Sanjaya as many times as possible.

  • courtney

    Gina did the best last night in my opinion.

  • creativegirl

    Oh Jared – Animating Sanjaya!!!!!!!!! Please don’t torture us like this.

    I stood there in disbelief watching this kid – it’s a total joke. I can’t believe he even allowed himself to go out in front of millions of people with his hair like that.

    Last night Gina and the dude who looks like Nosferatu were the best vocally. Lakisha and Melinda are totally in a different league and are always good, but I don’t know that last night they had like WOW performances. I really don’t think any of them did really. I wish Jordin would have sung something other than Hey Baby – she would have been better singing something that was actually lyrical and a song. Not that I don’t love HeyBaby!

    I agree this is the worst season of idol so far, but the final four will be Lakisha, Melinda, Blake and Jordin. That’s who I think it should be.

    I can’t wait so see Gwen tonight – I thought it was funny when she commented that even Lakisha and Melinda should be giving her singing tips. The girl knows that she isn’t the best singer in the world. I thought she looked absolutely beautiful last night with the paired down make-up and elegant hairdo. Just beautiful.

  • Layla

    DEAR GOD, MAKE THIS IDIOT GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • nat

    He reminds me of this girl who lives in my old neighbourhood, whom I dubbed “The Fraggle”.

  • Kathryn

    hehehe, Sanjaya is my guilty pleasure, if I lived in the US I would be voting for Sanjaya and Blake

  • b

    the guy is a lose. hes getting cocky, and he can sing or perform. the judges are harder on everyone else except him! this dumb ass needs to go!

  • Go F your mother

    This guy is too busy getting rammed from behind to care about how he sounds.

    Go Captain Douche!

  • Andee

    This is a travesty, what is this county coming to? He cannot sing, America needs to vote for a true talent, not a freak!
