Sanjaya - Onward to Victory!

4/11/2007 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sanjaya MalakarWhether or not you agree with Howard Stern and votefortheworst.com's quest to make Sanjaya the next "American Idol," one thing is for sure -- in Sanskrit his name literally means "victory." Go Sanjy!

Sanjaya is also a character in the Hindu epic story Mahabharata. And according to the bastion of accuracy that is wikipedia.org, the Sanjaya character "is known to be brutally frank in his recital of the day's battle events and his own opinions." TMZ may not be experts on Indian tales, but the "brutal" and "recital" parts couldn't be any more accurate about our furry little Malakar!

America breathlessly awaits (or is that asphyxiation?) seeing if Sanjaya gets one step closer to fulfilling his victorious destiny on tonight's J.Lo infused elimination show.

I kind of feel sorry for him...i mean he is the biggest joke around (well next to paris hilton)...but then again it's hard to feel sorry for someone who is going to get lots of deals from all this attention!

I can not believe that the American people can put through someone who has NO TALENT!!!!
You guys have stooped to a new low. I thought this nation was built on hard work and honesty. But the American people that are voting for him are no better than the sleasy, lieing politicians that we put into office. I say stop watching and see if the broadcasters change their minds about someone with NO TALENT!!!

Judging from the number of stories you have on this nimnutz each day, is someone at TMZ in love with him or something?

He'll win only if the producers want him to win. They have final say, they can trump whatever the American public votes. They're loving all this free publicity, but it's a puppet show. The notion that America controls the vote is an illusion.

A lot of people are saying that if he wins, no one will watch the show anymore. But I think that on the last show, everyone will watch it just to see if he wins or not. Whether he does or doesn't, people will forget about the whole Sanjaya-fever and tune in to next season once again.

PS. On a side note, I'm supporting anyone BUT Sanjaya! I don't hate him, actually think he'd be a really nice guy, but he doesn't deserve to win!
