He may not have walked away with the American Idol title -- but few who watched last season will forget Sanjaya Malakar. Turns out, castmate Blake Lewis didn't even want the aspiring singer on the show. "I was never a fan of Sanjaya," Lewis says in a new interview with a Jacksonville, Fla.-area radio station. In the interview (which you can hear above), the Idol runner-up says that Malakar made for "terrible television" and even reveals that he was initially cut from the show.
