So, again, I was drawn [with the rest of my family] to the TV last night for another “hair raising” episode of American Idol. What in the world is up with Sanjaya? Seriously, was it a “pony-hawk”, “mo-tail”, or a “dead-squirrel“? Here’s what I think happened, maybe last time, when Diana Ross was giving him pointers, she focused on his lack of “dance moves”. He did try to add a few, but looked like a hip-replacement victim trying to mimic Elvis. It was just dorky. Well, maybe he was rehearsing and noticed his hair had more groove to it than his body does and thought, “If I just maximize my wonderful hair-ness…hmmm, a ponytail, no, it needs to be more radical, a mohawk , no…..hmmmm, I know, I’ll combine them!” And it turned into the awkward dead animal/ponyhawk/motail version we all were graced with on TV last night. He did have a little middle part to his song where his ponyhawk bopped to the music in time quite nicely!
Or, maybe he was influenced by the Saturday Night Live guys who gave us all the fun “synchronized head bopping” skits/movie while picking up chics? I don’t know, but the whole thing was bizarre.
My prediction for tonight, however, is that the Mr. Fabio Locks will stay on the show! It’s all just so… I don’t even know what to say anymore…however, maybe he’ll have a future in more than just as a wanna-be singer – “I can’t believe it’s not butter?” Anyone? What do you think?
