Sanjaya: Halle Berry's Long Lost Sibling??

3/12/2007 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A new "American Idol" won't be crowned until May, but there's one competition Sanjaya Malakar has already won -- the Halle Berry Lookalike Contest!
Sanjaya and Halle Berry
While Sanjaya's vocal talents have people calling him the next Antonella Barba (minus the scantily clad pics--we hope), there's no denying the 17-year-old has Halle's Oscar-winning tousled brown locks. Best Performance by a Singer with a Curling Iron.

If "Idol" doesn't work out for the budding singer, and producers decide to exhume the "Catwoman" franchise, they've got their, er, man!

Give him a break...he's 17 and in the top 12..... Comparing him to Halle Berry of all people makes no sense. This guy is enjoying his time in the spotlight and the comments some people make on here are so dumb..make fun of people who deserve it for being so rich yet so stupid like Paris, Lindsay, Britney..!

He is visually horrible and it has amazed me that he still remains -- over Sundance! Who is voting for him? He gets worse and worse each week. Last night was the worst yet. He looks like Michael Jackson and Ghandi's spawn. He truly is like a freak.

I think that Sanjaya can sing - he needs to get over his stage fright and really belt out a song and show his talent. He's so shy and quiet on stage. He needs a coach that can help him, remember the movie "Sister Act" ha that's what he needs.....confidence. He has a voice ------come on Sanjaya ----lets hear it!!

I'd rather see more news oriented items instead of opinionated staffer slams. Leave that to the Perez Hilton ilk. It degrades the credibility of TMZ.

Sanjaya CANNOT SING., he's not a singer. Its terrible that other singers, that can really sing, have gotten voted off and he's still there. He is not talented, at all, he's just cute. Maybe he'll cut his hair once he's voted off the show, so that no one will recognize him. I compare him to William Hung. Voting for him has to be a miss-dial.

As I said again and again......He is the only contestant on the show that has a career after the show...This kid has great money making power for any musical producer who gets involved !!!!
America wake up !!!! See the big picture..... hes got Great stage presance already!!!! 1 year in a recording studio his voice improves ....just think hes only 17 now and he can sell......He is way beyond what american idol can offer....Sanjaya can front a rock band and make millions!!!! Hes a winner ............

You guys who say Sanjaya looks like Halle must be drunki!!!!! To me he is ugly and she is a beauty. . Also every time he remains on Idol someone with real talent gets the boot. The media created this mess. If he wins because of this hoax it will be pittiful. He is a wimp.
