The Nightmare Before Xmas: Sanjaya to Sing Again

11/28/2007 12:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sanjaya MalakarDust off those pony-hawks and put on your earplugs, because "American Idol" wannabeen Sanjaya Malakar ('memba him?!) is about to start "singing" again!

The 18-year-old wavy, chestnut brown-maned crooner is hitting the stage for a solo performance in the holiday production of Langston Hughes' "Black Nativity" in Seattle on Sunday. Bah humbug!

While it may not be a Clarkson Grammy or an Underwood hit album, at least Sanjy has avoided the fate of many fallen "Idols" of yore -- and hasn't had to sing at the opening of a housing development , an outlet mall or regional balloon festival -- yet!

Please this guy is just a cute(if that's what you want to call him) version of William Hung. He can't sing at all, he sucks!!!! The bad part is, he actually thinks he can sing, and he's good looking. He needs to watch his AI appearances again and get a reality check.....

Didn't I see him on "Walking With Cavemen" on the Discovery Channel?

The kid really can sing and he is, whether you like it or not, an entertainer. This was evidenced by his audition and the by the show's band director. When he finds his groove he'll be ok because the boy CAN carry a tune and he's eye candy. I'm more surprised Disney hasn't conered the Sanjaya market. It would at least give them an entertainer who doesn't lipsynch and it stays right up there with the "Disney look".

Once again, TMZ is posting a story about Sanjaya in order to trash him. I don't think he has a great career ahead of him, but he seems like a nice kid. Dang, you LA people are a mean bunch.

Wow. Whoever wrote that really seems to like his hair. Hot picture too.

Sanjaya's going to be singing with the Total Experience Gospel Choir, which he used to be part of, along with two other former Idols who also sang with them. Have a look for Sweet Chariot/Sanjaya on YouTube to check his and the choir's gospel credentials.

And he went down a storm on tour, winning loads of fans along the way. Great pelvic thrusting. ;->

What is amusing to me is the fact that people continue to find fault with Malakar's vocal abilities eventhough it was Abdul, Cowell and Jackson collectively that sent him first
1) Hollywood and 2) to the finals. There's NO doubt that Malakar's vocal abilities were not that strong. Just remember, it was until the competition really began that the judges started having trouble with his abilities. In a few words: it was the judges that did a half-ass job in selecting him in the first place.

This guy isnt a celebrity. He is a game show contestant that lost.
Send him back to wherever he came from. He is a joke.

now just look at that picture...Sanjaya is one sexy man!! On top of that he is an amazing performer and singer. I honestly don't get how you guys don't see that in him. Sanjaya saved this season of American Idol. Sanjaya is great!!!
Just because American Idol is over, does not mean Sanjaya is over! He has big things coming his way!!

I think he's great. I enjoyed him on AI, and thought that he often got a bum rap. I thought right after Idol, it was announced that he had a record deal.
