EXCLUSIVE! Sanjaya Wants To Be On 'DWTS' — Could He Possibly Be Worse At Dancing Than He Is At Singing?

We doubt it! Former American Idol contestant Sanjaya is ready to take his talents (or lack thereof) to DWTS…watch out, Kate Gosselin! You might have some stiff competition!

Love him or hate him, Sanjaya Malakar is entertaining. Considered completely talentless by most (aside from his obsessed tween fans), the 20-year-old former American Idol contestant is now seeking a new platform for his tone deaf self — one that (thankfully) involves a little less crooning and a lot more hip-shaking: Dancing with the Stars!

“The only [other reality show] I’d consider would be Dancing with the Stars,” Sanjaya — who’s as well known for his crazy hairdos as he is his screechy warbling — told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at pal Mark Ballas‘ concert in Los Angeles April 12. “I would totally do it because I love the show and I’ve always loved to dance, but I’ve never really had training — so I think it would be fun to be put in that situation!”

You’re not the only one who’d have fun, Sanjaya! We’re already on the couch, munching popcorn waiting to see what crazy hairstyle you’ll show off next!

As far as which dance pro Sanjaya would pick, he’s definitely open to suggestions. “I wouldn’t care [which partner I had], I just would want someone who was a really great choreographer because I’ve never really been trained…but I have a grasp of dance,” he explained.

We wonder if his grasp of dance is as strong as his grasp of singing….oh, dear. Scatch that — we can’t wait!
