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!

I keep telling you all, Michael Jackson is behind him (no pun intended). Sangaya seems to be acting just like him. Who keeps voting or this moron?

I heard yesterday that Howard Stern is asking all of his listeners to vote for Sanjaya. Asshole.

It wasn't even cute though! It was freakish. And what's scarier...that some no-talent hack like Sunjaya can make it to the Top 10 or that the public is stupid enough to be swayed by a nutty, sobbing child? And she wasn't even cute, like Dakota Fanning or something. She was kinda funky looking, like a Culkin.

Dakota Fanning is an abomination. Just saying.

The oldest Culkin grew into a nice looking man, IMHO. But I like your phrasology and may adopt it anyway - "weird lookin guy, looks like a Culkin..."

Make no mistake about it - the producers clearly want Sangaya to stay on as long as possible so that Simon will have someone to tear apart mercilessly week upon week.
