The Tween did it!!
I think America was ready to send Sanjaya home this week. Enough of us had gotten past his hair and his androgynous looks to actually listen to him and found there just wasn't much there. The tweenies and the grannies were ready to shift their allegiance to the likes of Chris Richardson and Blake Lewis. People were beginning to notice Jordin Sparks and giving Stephanie Edwards the benefit of the doubt. Sanjaya was headed for bottom three territory with a bullet. He was on his way out tonight.
All of that changed last night. And not for the better. Last night a picture launched a million votes and we saw exactly what the tween vote means.
It was too cute. I'm not going to say it was all a set-up. I have no proof that indicates it was. But I have to say that the moment I saw her crying it popped into my mind. "How convenient for Sanjaya." Doesn't matter that she was probably crying throughout the show. The camera's focused on the Sanjaya experience. Ryan milked it. Even Simon hyped it when he said the little girls face "says it all". Yeah, you and I know what he meant. Doesn't matter. I'm not sure if I want to continue watching this mess. If Sanjaya would step down, I'd continue to watch the show. This competition is too much about image and story. I think Sanjay's story is no longer buzzworthy, I'm sick of him already!
