Freshly ousted from ‘American Idol’, Sanjaya Malakar spoke with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ correspondent Thea Andrews about his experience on the show and the negative feedback he received week after week from Simon Cowell. “From the beginning I think Simon saw potential in me, and when I didn’t fulfill that potential, he was disappointed,” Malakar admitted. “I just want to say to him, he is an amazing person and what he does is awesome. He is very opinionated – I learned more from him than anyone else while I was on the show.” Video has since been removed.
