Rock Star Supernova Winner Leaked

It has been floating around all over the net today that the winner of Rock Star Supernova is Lukas. Though how much truth their is to this rumor is unknown.

Given, Lukas is pretty damn good, can rock it out, change it up and is a likely candidate to win, I just don’t think he’s going to manage it. I just can’t see him fronting a band like Supernova. I love his voice, his style and him in general, but he just doesn’t fit with the band and I can’t see them being or becoming all that great with Lukas as a front man.

What do you think?

Rock Star Supernova Update

The show starts out recaping the Monday, August 28th Rock Star Supernova show.

And then the rockers take to the stage, one by one, to sing songs picked for them by Rock Star Supernova MSN votes in a Viewer’s Song Choice Show.

Performances:

Lukas sang “Lithium” by Nirvana. It was a slightly different arrangement then usual, but Jason Newsted was loving it from the get go. Both Dave Navarro and Tommy Lee loved it and thought Lukas rocked it out. Gilby Clarke said it was his “best performance yet”, while Jason added “Dynamite! Freakin’ Dynamite!”

My Thoughts: All in all it was pretty good. Considering he doesn’t even like the song, I was thinking he would blow it utterly, but he did fairly well. Interesting tid bit, it’s apparently be floating around the net today that Lukas is the winner of the show. Interesting, No?

Magni sang “I Alone” by Live and Tommy Lee is digging it right off the bat, busting out the air drums and rocking out. Magni made his way into and through the crowd and emerged beside the members of Supernova after being mauled by lusty female fans. Dave Navarro said “killer dude, awesome job!” and Gilby Clarke loved it, saying it had that “extra something” special that his performances have been missing. Jason Newsted even gave him a standing o.

My Thoughts: He absolutely rocked it! I loved this performance. This is a fantastic song and he did the perfect job, great performance too. Good work Magni.

Ryan sings “Clocks” by Coldplay and cleverly, or weakly, depends on how you look at it, avoided all of the high notes and high register vocals, which is basically the entire song. Dave said it was “killer dude”, Jason said he’s more suited for behind the pain than being a frontman and Gilby said it was a great performance.

My Thoughts: Two words for this one… Utter Crap! This was a terrible performance and Ryan avoided most of the difficult parts of the song and even managed to do a crap job of the parts he actually sang – brutal.

Rock Star Supernova: Viewer’s Choice Song Selection

Tonight’s Rock Star Supernova song selection show was a special one, seeing the Viewer’s choose the songs that the Rock Stars will sing for tomorrow’s show.

Tonight’s show also saw Dilana having a mental break down, smashing a wine glass on the ground and catching Magni in the head with a stray piece of glass, giving him a pretty nice cut. As well as all the Rock Stars trying their best to look hardcore in a photo shoot, some fail miserably (Magni), other started off rough and rocked it (Dilana) and others looked like they were posing for Playgirl (Lukas).

The Rock Star Supernova Viewer’s Choice Song Selection came down to the following songs:

  • Lukas – “Lithium” by Nirvana
  • Toby – “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol
  • Magni – “I Alone” by Live
  • Storm – “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence
  • Ryan – “Clocks” by Coldplay
  • Dilana – “Mother Mother” by Tracy Bonham

Tomorrow’s show should prove be a good one. I’m really looking forward to hearing Toby sing Rebel Yell, I think that song fits his voice and singing style perfectly and he should be able to rock it out hard. Storm singing Bring Me To Life should be really interesting too, I just hope she doesn’t butcher it.

Rock Star Supernova – Tuesday, August 29th @ 8pm EST on CBS.

Rock Star Supernova: Patrice Eliminated!

Rock Star Supernova Update: Patrice Eliminated!

Toby is picked to take to the stage and sing with Supernova. They sing another song from their forth coming album entitled “Be Yourself and 5 Other Cliches”. Toby‘s look, feel and sound seems to fit with the Supernova guys very well and the song is very catchy and certainly has potential to be the first single released on the album.

The interview clinic is shown, focusing on Dilana and her recent excursion into bitchyness and trashing of her fellow contestants. The crowd is not happy with the Dilana‘s answers at all and Dave Navarro is in the same boat, asking Dilana exactly “what the hell” she was thinking. Dilana gives a fluff answer and everyone feels better. Dave ask’s how Ryan feels about Dilana trashing on him and the other house guests and he takes the high road, while getting a few jabs in on Dilana in the process.

The original bottom three is announced again:
Patrice
Storm
Toby

Only one other contestant fell into the bottom three during the voting period:
Magni

Magni is the first up to defend his spot and he sings “Fire” by Jimi Hendrix while sporting a guitar and rocking out. Jason Newsted and Tommy Lee both LOVED it.

My Thoughts: This song was FANTASTIC. By far the best Magni has done the entire show, possibly even the best song of the show so far. The song was sung and executed perfectly and Magni’s performance was great. I really loved this song, can’t get over how good it was.

Patrice is the second to take to the stage and defend her position. She performs a version of “Middle of the Road” by The Pretenders. Tommy, Gilby, Jason and Dave Navarro don’t get a shot to throw any comments in on the performance.

My Thoughts: The vocals were so-so, as usual, the performance was so-so as usual, the entire thing was only so-so. Patrice doesn’t have a bad voice, but it’s not great and her performances never seem to be attention grabbing. She’s always been a kind of ho-hum contestant.

Toby‘s up next with his shot to defend himself and he does so by singing “Plush” by Stone Temple Pilots. No comments from Supernova on this one either.

My Thoughts: Very weak start, was worried it was going to suck and they he picked up his vocals and performance and really rocked it out. Toby is a born performer and does fantastic on stage. He finish the song strong and did well defending his spot.

Supernova is blown away that Toby is even in the bottom three, especially since they thought he was good enough to join them on stage to perform their newest song. Supernova let’s Toby go and sets it’s sights on the remaining two contestants, Magni and Patrice.

After a little group gossip and little to no thought, Tommy Lee drops the axe on Patrice and she becomes the 9th contestant axed from Rock Star Supernova.

Rock Star Supernova Preview:

At the closing of this weeks show it was announced that next weeks should would be a viewers choice show where the viewers get to pick the songs the contestants sing. To make your song selection, go to: rockstar.msn.com

Rock Star Supernova Update

Patrice gets one of the original song selections and plays guitar to accompany it. Dave Navarro says he likes it, but she’d be better suited to solo work if that’s the kind of thing she’d like to sing. Tommy Lee says it’s a little happy for them [Supernova], but it could be slowed down, made heavier and could work. And I missed what Jason Newsted said because I was busy typing this. 😛

My Thoughts: I didn’t dig it. Patrice’s voice just isn’t strong enough and it wasn’t that impressive.

Magni sings Nirvana‘s classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. The crowd digs it, as usual, and Tommy seems to be getting into it pretty well too. Dave says he did an awesome job vocally and that Magni has great angst for his performances. Jason enjoyed it a lot and said the energy in the crowd was fantastic. Tommy asks why Magni didn’t use the guitar on this song and points out the fact that just because he picks up the guitar doesn’t mean he has to be stiff. Dave says he wants to see something broke up there this season.

My Thoughts: Not bad, but not great. It’s hard to cover a Nirvana song and it wasn’t that great a cover, not the right voice for it.

Ryan gets to sing the second original of the night entitled “back of your car” (I think?). Half way through the performance Ryan throws his guitar aside and rocks out on the mic. Dave wonders where the hell this Ryan came from and that it’s the most rocking he’s seen him. Dave asks what the hell happened to him and he responds, “I got laid dave!”. Tommy said it was the most comfortable he’s ever been on stage. Gilby Clarke says it was his best performance yet and that’s saying something with how good he’s been doing lately.

My Thoughts: I liked it. I haven’t been a big fan of Ryan, but he rocked it out tonight and did a good job, good work man.

Storm takes the stage to sing “Cryin'” by Aerosmith. The crowds loving it, of course, and Tommy’s singing along. Dave said it was “awesome” and “you did great” and said that singing this well is why he hated last weeks song so much. Dave tells her to take the corset off and she tells dave to “come over and take it, bitch!”. Gilby says it was good but he’s looking for something special. Jason says he really liked how she took the song and made it her own song.

My Thoughts: She completely rocked it. I didn’t think she’d be able to rock it but she did and she did it damn well. Very impressed with Storm this week.

Dilana steps up on stage and sings “Every Breathe You Take” by The Police. She’s looking sexy as always but the huge fake eye-lashes are not doing it for me at all. Supernova doesn’t look to be digging it to much, though Gilby’s swaying to the beat pretty well. Dave says he likes the eye-lashes (ug!). Gilby compliments her instincts and says she knows what to do no matter what kind of song she sings. Dave says she did a great job with the song. Jason wants to know why she was willing to run around naked to get this song and Dilana says its cause she hasn’t spoken to her mom in years and the song reminds her of her mother.

My Thoughts: Not bad, certainly not her best, I like her heavier stuff much better.

Toby takes to the stage to sing “Layla” by Eric Clapton. He’s belting out the chorus something fierce and the crowd is really digging it. Oh, off comes the shirt and into the crowd he goes, coming up with the other contestants and getting them all to stand up and spur on the crowd. Dave asks what the EVS written on his stomach stands for, toby says Aussie for “whatever!”. Dave also says he rocked it and he loved it. Tommy speaks for the ladies and says he’s sure they loved the performance, loud cheers follow, naturally. Gilby says he’s not a big fan of the change to the arrangement, but totally loved the performance.

My Thoughts: Certainly not his best vocal, but Gilby was dead on when he said the performance was great. One of the better performances of the season thus far. Even though the vocals lacked a bit for me too, the performance put it through the roof.

Lukas, last to take the stage, sings “All These Things That I’ve Done” by The Killers. LOL, Lukas stopped to fix his hair in the reflection of the guitarists guitar, Tommy seemed to get as big a kick out of that as I did. Dave says it was unbelievable, great job! Tommy says, two word “check please!”. Gilby says great job, but asks why Lukas turns his back to them so much and faces the band. Lukas says it’s because he wants to rock out and appreciate his band, not just the crowd.

My Thoughts: I love the original version of the song and I didn’t really dig this version. I’m a big Lukas fan and am sad to admit that I just didn’t feel it on this song. And, I agree with Gilby again, I don’t like him turning his back to the crowd, especially since the last time he did it he said it was because he had forgot the lyrics, bad move man.

Cheers

Rock Star Supernova: Zayra Eliminated

Praise the Rock gods!

Zayra Alvarez has finally been eliminated from Rock Star Supernova. After being in the bottom 3 numerous times, singing horribly all the time and dressing like a complete whore, the voters and Tommy Lee finally realized just how much she sucks and got rid of her. Good riddance!

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve really been getting into Rock Star Supernova for the last few weeks. Some of the contestants have pretty damn good voices and a few of them would even be wicked to see with Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and Jason Newsted. Although, my top 2 picks are definitely Dilana Robichaux and Lukas Rossi.

Dilana has a fantastic voice and a stage presence that even comes through strong when watching her on TV, though my only concern with her is that she hasn’t been changing it up that much from show to show.

Lukas, however, does change it up every show and does a wicked job every time. I like when he sings with a gravely style voice, but when he sings some nice clean vocals he’s got a beautiful voice, and when he manages to combine the two together in a single song it turns out wicked. He did a version of Radiohead‘s “Creep” a few shows ago and it was awesome!

I’m actually really looking forward to seeing who wins this show. Of all the Reality TV shows out there right now, this one certainly holds the most appeal for me.

Cheers.
