That little Riverside girl who cried and cried over Sanjaya on American Idol last night must have voted a bazillion times on the way home because America's favorite bad singer with no personality has made it through to American Idol's Top 10. (Yeah and you have no one to blame for that because you didn't vote and the folks over at votefortheworst.com did.) So after 30 million votes, Sanjaya stays and Stephanie Edwards is out.

Now Stephanie is a good singer -- she just had an off night with "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me." While Sanjaya had a better night on Tuesday, he's been terrible all season long.

But that's not the only part of the night's shocker. The other person in the bottom two was Chris Richardson, who's a good singer, too. Neither Stephanie or Chris deserved to be in the bottom two. What about Gina Glocksen? Phil Stacey? Haley Scarnato? Or heaven forbid, Sanjaya Malakar!

Well, we'll tune in next week to see if Sanjaya takes another step closer to the finals, pitting him against Melinda or LaKisha.
