"Idol" Reject Is Trying to Screw the Show

4/13/2007 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Bennett votes for Sanjaya Malakar -- and she hopes it'll take down "American Idol."

Last season's petite powerhouse phoned into the "Tone E Fly Morning Show" in Minneapolis today, and called "Idol" "a joke," and said she and a few other contestants are using the Web site VotefortheWorst.com to screw with the results.

"We want to see him [Sanjaya] win because it'll kind of prove that 'American Idol' is kind of losing its taste," says Bennett, "it kinda isn't going for talent anymore and more for popularity."

At least she isn't bitter.

Paris Bennett sounded great when she was auditioning last season. But, when she sang in the show, she sounded like an old woman...... I really hope she reads this:

Paris Bennett the American people voted you out, because you sang like a Grandma...........nothing wrong with Grandmas' their just not Pop singers! (hence...the age limit)

Umm, hello? It's just a silly TV show. For those who believe they have real talent, go to the record companies and see if they'll sign you up based on your 'talent' and marketability, and see what they say. I repeat, it's just a silly TV show. IT'S JUST A SILLY TV SHOW!

How in the hell did the judges move Sanjaya as far as they did to begin with! He should have never gotten past Hollywood week. Maybe next year the judges will move more talent through and concentrate less on who would be the most "popular".

I would have to say that after 6 seasons of this show it is getting kind of old!! But that doesn't mean that her bitter ass should be voting for that idiot Sanjaya!! If she feels that she got voted off because she wasnt popular enough then why the hell is she doing it to the other contestants!! HELLO PARIS we know its a popularity contest you dont have to tell us that....why do you think that camel jockey Sanjaya is still on the show!!?? GET OVER IT.....most of the people that get voted off get recording contracts anyways....ELLIOT YAMIN ring a bell?? So if you were any good you would be putting out albums!! SO DO THE WORLD A FAVOR AND VOTE OFF SANJAYA AND GIVE THE TALENT A FAIR CHANCE AT WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!

don't judge HOWARD    

I will continue to vote for Sanjaya!! Melinda is already a professional. She shouldn't be in the competition. The show is supposed to be about discovering talent, kids who would have not been known if it wasn't for American Idol.....not bringing on pros. to get ratings!!!!

Go to hell, Paris. Take your short ass home to Grandma and whine to her. No one else wants to hear your sad story. If you were really as talented as you supposedly think you are, then you would have been last year's AI. Girl, you need to GROW UP!

At this critical point in the life of American Idol, a great family show that we all have grown to love, the JURY has to take over and save it by deciding who is going to be the next AI. Not the public, sorry, guys, you lost the vote by voting for untalented people
