Vote on Your Favorite Sanjaya Hairstyle!

03/28/2007 at 05:23 PM ET

Sanjaya Malakar’s hair is getting as much — if not more — attention as his singing. In just a few weeks on the show, the adventurous 17-year-old has undergone several tress-formations, morphing from shaggy to super-straight to ultra curly and his most recent concoction — seven teased ponytails in the shape of a faux-hawk (Wonder what Mr. T would think about that one?). What look do you think best suits the soft-spoken singer?

Which of Sanjaya’s hairstyles do you like best (clockwise from left)?
The shag
The ultra-straight
The faux-hawk
The poodle

The natural one is best but honestly, who the hell cares? Get this kid OFFFFF of Idol. He has NO voice and his hairstyles are ridiculous….now he’s starting to even backtalk Simon. Just get rid of him

well, well, well… let’s face it, it took a lot of “kahunas” if ya’ know what i mean to be seen on national television with that faux hawk. gotta give the dude credit for that and that alone! i like his hair natural…naturally…hahahaha. quite frankly the only time i’ve seen any part of the show was when that poor kid was blubbering like the angst ridden teen that she is…on national television! besides that i am mostly a fan of the try outs, so much more entertaining.

Myy fave of the hair styles is a tie between the faux-hawk and the shag. The poodle is so artificial and the ultra straight kinda grosses me out.
I feel bad for his sister. He’s getting so much attention (he is somewaht talented) and his sister has to take it all. At first I thought he was very talented and sweet and nice, but this just shows he’s trying to get attention and votes.
If he does win American Idol, he will disappear off the music radar so fast.

PATHETIC – He’s not even famous yet.
