Blogs keep 'Idol's' Sanjaya center stage

"American Idol" contestant Sanjaya Malakar is, by all accounts, not the most talented performer on the show. But research firm Nielsen BuzzMetrics says the blogosphere has played a large part in making him the most visible.

According to a BuzzMetrics report, Sanjaya -- now referred to by only his first name on many sites -- has seen blog references increase 338 percent from February 18, when he first reached critical mass, to April 8. Reality TV Magazine is the top blog in Sanjaya traffic, with 40 other blogs linking to its posts on the subject from January 1-April 8. Click here to read the rest of the article

I've heard good things about him, though frankly I hv to yet hear him out. But then I am not too fond of such reality shows, either American idol or Indian Idol or Fame Gurukul!

BTW favorited you on Technorati. Expect to see a reciprocal :D
