Sanjaya, why u still here???!!!!!!!!!!!!  
We agree. Sanjaya is love. That doesn't mean he should be back for another week of "American Idol." Yet he just keeps hangin' in there. So who's responsible for keeping the young Mr. Malakar on the "Idol" stage?

There are many suspects at which to point the finger. Could it be mischief maker Howard Stern, for promoting Sanjaya as this year's Vote For the Worst candidate? Or tween girls abusing their cell phone speed dial? Maybe it's the "Idol" producers who lavish him with loads of screen time? Perhaps inadvertent reverse psychology from Simon Cowell is the reason?

We sniffed out the Buzz trail for clues. First, we eliminated the girl-power motive. Female teens account for 14% of his queries, but their proportion has dropped as older adults (who should know better) have taken up his cause. If anything, tween girls have shown good taste with copious searches on Blake and Chris Richardson.

Second, we noticed Barba-bereft New Jersey and other East Coast states are hotbeds for Sanjaya searches. Perhaps with all of the East Coast contenders eliminated, the Atlantic region is throwing their support behind the underdog.

But as with any good mystery, the culprit turns out to be the one you'd least suspect. So we turn our attention to: Hawaii, where Sanjaya spent his formative years. Don't be fooled by the tiny islands. After all, they helped keep Jasmine Trias afloat in season 4. The Aloha State is also responsible for the highest percentage of Idol searches year after year.

We're watching you, Hawaii. No more false moves with Idol voting. Our democratic process is at stake.
