American Idol Says Bye-bye Sligh

Fan favorite Sanjaya Malakar has taken another step toward American Idol-hood. Tonight, it was portly Chris Sligh— the Jack Osbourne lookalike — who got the boot.

Now we admit that Chris had an off night last night with a cover of The Police's "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic," but at least Chris can sing in tune. We can’t say the same for Sanjaya, whose tone-deaf fans obviously voted him into the American Idol Top 9.

(Yeah, thanks a million, and Howard Stern.)

The others in the bottom three were Phil Stacey and Haley Scarnato, two people who bored LAist with their Tuesday night performances.

Ultimately, Chris’ humor couldn’t save him, but maybe sporting a Sanjaya mohawk could have.
