Sanjaya Sports the Fuzzstache

Sanjaya Sports the Fuzzstache

American Idol’s Sanjaya Malakar sang his own rendition of Emilio Tuero‘s “Besame Mucho” (“Kiss Me A Lot”) sporting a rather boring new curly hairdo. But his peach fuzz facial hair had it totally going on — he rocked the FUZZTACHE!! He even won over the judges too…

  • Randy said, “You’re one of the smartest contestants I’ve ever met. That was actually really good! It was!”
  • Paula said, “Yeah! Pretty good pitch. Smooth. Nice. It was very, very nice.”
  • Simon said, “I couldn’t understand a word of it. You sang like a 14-year-old and I’m going to hate myself for this. It wasn’t horrible!”

20+ pictures of Sanjaya Malakar‘s winning facial hair inside…

    randy: “I think you’re the smartest contestant on AI”

  • bdj

    Sanjaya gave a nice, understated performance. He was the only contestant to sing a little in Spanish. Blake was good. The other contestants were okay, not great. I like the boyish facial hair Sanjaya got going. It really doesn’t go with the Shirley Temple curls but what the heck. Go Sanjaya!!!!

  • [Fug Face [x]]


    VOTE SANJAYA! please. He is the biggest joke in america, I hope it keeps going.

  • haha

    He actually wasn’t that bad tonight, go figure.

  • Frenchy

    He sang one of my favorite songs EVER and he sang it nicely and it was age appropriate for him. It would be hysterical if he got slightly better & better every week! LOL!!! Besame Mucho was THE song of the night.

  • No AI fan

    The joke is on American Idol. Sanjaya fakes that he can’t sing then pulls out his trump card when he needs it. Cool. Serves AI right for choosing a lame top 24.

  • Laur

    He is HORRIBLE!! He is such a joke, thats the only reason hes still there, everyone is laughing at him. I cant wait till hes gone.
    If he wins it will be the end of American Idol.

  • Te-Te

    He actually wasn’t bad..If anything he had one of the best performances tonight…He sounded ok to me..I dont think he necessarily can’t sing, but voice lessons are definitely needed…But he actually CAN sing people. Haley should probably go home tomorrow.

  • Anon.

    Oh Dear Gawd. I’ve got Simon representin’ me on this one, allll the way. This show isn’t supposed to exist for it’s own sake, bcz if it did Sanjaya and all his crap would be too cute. The point of the show is to pick the NEXT American Idol…which Snajaya isn’t.

  • J3$$!C@

    Couple of points 1) Jennifer Lopez was my favorite mentor of this season so far. 2) Sanjaya did a good job of singing such a beautiful song. 3) Blake was the best of the night. 4) Haley has great legs!

  • TheDjangia

    I swear. I thought it was a joke that will pass.!
    He’s already won.

  • tanique33

    i’m AMAZEDDD, people still vote for him, when they don’t like him. its like the april fool’s joke still being told april 15th. its just not funny anymore.

    i don’t pay attention to him, but if people genuinely like him, and want to vote fine. but, i’m truly amazed that the lame “vote for him because he sucks” thing is still going on.

    i agree about jen, my favorite mentor too, blake was the best for me, by far. simon calling hayley out on the outfit was hilarious. the rest were pretty blah. but, they picked blah, so…

  • Sally

    I thought he did a good job. I really like him! I think he is sweet, good looking and he can sing. I’d like to see him win.

  • inkwerty’shumbleopinion

    I thought I’d never say this but he was actually GOOD tonight. Tonight was the Bizarro world of AI. for many reasons!…..

    Who can forget the You Tube Video: “Sanjaya, Sanjaya gonna set this world on fiah!” LOL!

  • Dan

    I noticed the facial hair too! I like it. And he wasn’t even too bad this week. Well the movement goes on, and he’s gonna be #1 this week i’m pretty sure.

    I’m gonna come up with a theme song for it pretty soon. You’ll see it up at pretty soon. Gonna be a good one.

  • Kelli

    I love Sanjaya!!!!! I think he’s really good and America just loves to pick on people. Give the kid a break, he’s frickin’ 17!!!

  • Question

    If I call and get a dial tone does the vote still go through?

  • DJSlim

    can you make some screencaps of Shyamali from the video for us? Pretty please

  • Question

    *I mean busy tone

  • Kelli

    Melinda may be very good, but she’s too boring for me. Sanjaya is much more fun and entertaining!

  • John

    melinda owns everyone!!!

  • TheDjangia

    here’s my second post.

    the djoke is that I do not watch AI. I dont even know what or who a melinda is (though I did do a search for Haley’s legs) . But if all this publicity is getting me to check out this kid… and I think he is good… heck man – that’s a vote right there for him.

    hope this solves the mystery on why sanjaya’s coming out topps.

  • b

    i love how some of you people think hes so goood…but u dont know what the hell ur talking about. this gay kid sucks! get him off!

  • AmyWinehouseISTHEBOMB

    El DeBarge is alive and living in Sanjaya.

  • goldend

    Jared, “besame mucho” was composed by Consuelo Velazquez not Emilio Tuero (his was the first recorded version), she composed it before turning 16 years!

  • pipi

    First time hearing him sing and he’s not that bad, I expected a lot worse from the reaction over him. He sounds like Justin Guarini but the fuzz has to go.

  • hamper

    FANJAYA!! :)

  • crybabyAniston

    I’m just so happy that more people are getting to see a great entertainer in the making.

  • janice

  • Mary

    I love him he is the greatest… Besame muchoooooooooooooooooo :D :D :D that was very very nice. He is very smart he knows what he is doing… And he deserves to be there because he is brilliant… :D :D ;)

  • loveben

    I thought he sang really well this time.

  • Jennie
