Sanjaya Malakar

Season 6

Winner: Jordin Sparks

The judges hated him, but the viewers voted for him. Hate him or love him, Sanjaya Malakar is easily one of the most recognized stars of American Idol. Following his loss, ratings on the show dropped and the Washington native went on to star on the reality television show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me out of Here.
