SNL Takes On American Idol Sanjaya

With one name, controversial hair, and questionable talent, Sanjaya remains in the spotlight as a curiosity. (That breathy "You Really Got Me" rendition was embarrassing!) Here, Andy Samberg does his best Sanjaya impression, but he's upstaged by all the hysterical criers and lip quiverers in the audience, including SNL alum Dan Akroyd. Would these weepers explode in the presence of true talent? (Thanks to the AI group and Shiloh Jolie Pitt for finding the fabulous clip!)

I wish I cared about AI this year but the two episodes I watched were really sad. Not an enormous amount of talent. But I keep reading about this Sanjaya dude and his hair. I think it's hilarious that he's being kept around by people who are voting for the worst singer! That is brilliant! Maybe he'll win the whole thing, that would be so funny. Will someone explain the crying people in the audience please? Thanks, Jules

I was impressed they found an exact replica of that jacket. I was sure there could only be 1 in the world. Giggle, you should join the SNL group- we were discussing on Saturday night. Also check out the Peyton Manning mentor sketch from the same show- I am sure it is on You Tube it was hi-larious.
