The hair-raising popularity of Sanjaya on 'Idol'

The Baltimore Sun

Snapshots from the Sanjaya Malakar Hall of Infamy:

Perhaps the low point, the absolute nadir, was the 17-year-old American Idol contestant's unmelodious rendition of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me." Midway through, Sanjaya literally screamed, "You got me so I can't sleep at night."

On TV American Idol, with mentor Martina McBride, airs at 8 tonight and 9 p.m. tomorrow on WBFF (Channel 45).
