    People may mock Sanjaya, but I was pretty impressed the way that he held up under the relentless bashing from the judges on AI. He’s been very classy about his time on AI and I wish him well.

    I really like the kid. I enjoyed him on the show. No, his singing isn’t idol worthy, but he has something. He also is extremely bright, and classy, absolutely. I wish him luck, and hope this is a success for him.
