Sanjaya Malakar always has a smile on his face but the 17-year-old singing hopeful is very awkward on stage and obviously doesn't have the chops to be among the top 12 on "American Idol". It's torture to keep voting him in for another week while more talented singers are booted off.
Die-hard fans of The Hair are likely among the legions of teeny boppers who must be voting 100 times or more.
But the scathing reviews and criticisms from judges have hurt Sanjaya. TMZ scoops: A source close to Sanjaya's family revealed exclusively to TMZ that the darling hula-dancer has been devastated by recent bad press he's received over his not-so-precious singing. "He's so young and so sensitive, it's hard for him to go out on that stage and not have that devastation affect his performance," said the source.
Please vote Sanjaya off, people. He knows he's in over his head and we can't take much more of the Hair.
