Serious fans of "American Idol" are nervous. Very, very nervous. Sanjaya Malakar might win! And that thought has others salivating with joy. Sanjaya, who made headlines last week for his fauxhawk made of seven pony tails, can't sing any better than your Aunt Betty. But he has a fun personality and talks back to irascible judge Simon Cowell. And now Sanjaya has become the darling of a movement spearheaded by shock jock Howard Stern to vote for the worst contestant. Since viewer votes control who walks each week and who stays, the idea is to skew the vote so the worst singer is eventually declared The American Idol. Simon is so mad he's threatened to quit the show if that happens. (Yeah, right. And walk away from that gigantic paycheck he gets?) The New York Post and USA Today report the campaign is an unprecedented attempt to influence "Idol's" voting system. Sanjaya, who is only 17, is regarded as one of the worst singers in the group of finalists. (But his hair is quite entertaining.) Hardcore fans worry Sanjaya will ruin the chances for someone else who is really talented. Stern says he has masterminded the "vote for the worst" campaign because "Idol" is ruining the music industry. So Stern wants to ruin the show. "Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe says he isn't worried. "People with talent have always won it. We've lost really good people a little too early, and sometimes the Sanjayas, Chicken Littles and John Stevens have lasted a little longer perhaps."
