Simon says he'll quit if Sanjaya wins Idol
Simon warned, "He's not going to win. I won't be back if he does!"
Last night, Sanjaya gave another monotone performance, droning out "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" while sporting Justin Guarini's bouncy hair. Simon snarked, "When you hear a wail in Beverly Hills, that is where Diana Ross is watching this show."
Unfortunately, the meaner Simon is, the more devoted Sanjaya's fans (or "Fanjayas" as I've heard them called) seem to become. According to dialidol.com, Sanjaya is most likely safe again this week.
As for Simon quitting Idol, I'm sure that won't be necessary. Odds are that Sanj won't go all the way to win this thing. If he does, millions of people will be outraged that popularity trumped talent in what is supposed to be a "singing competition." Luckily for Idol, the surrounding controversy would only pump up the ratings higher -- especially on the night that Simon hands in his resignation.
