Rock Star Supernova: Ryan Eliminated

Last night Viewers Coice Performance saw the most votes ever received for Rock Star Supernova. And for good reason, the competition has been heating up something fierce and everyone is really on their game now. It’s a hard competition to call and it keeps getting better.

Lukas gets picked to sing with Supernova and they sing their newest song “It’s On.”

It wasn’t to bad of a performance, though I still don’t see Lukas meshing with the rest of the Supernova guys. I love his voice and I think he’s got a lot of talent, but I just don’t see him fronting Supernova.

Toby scores the Encore performance and performs “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol again. This time he runs around everywhere throughout the perfomance and manages to cover almost the entire studio, even the dark, unlit area in the back. The performance was great, as always, Toby is a killer showman and really know how to put on a crowd pleasing show. He did a much better job singing the song tonight as well. He sang it the way I expected him to last night.

On to the juicy stuff:

Original Bottom three:

  • Ryan
  • Storm
  • Lukas

Later Additions to the Bottom three:

  • Toby
  • Dilana

That’s right folks. Magni was the only one NOT to show up in the bottom three at any point during the voting. After seeing the bottom three a few times over the past few shows, not being in the bottom three for Magni was huge! Finally people seem to recognize his talent, as they should after he rocked out “I Alone” by Live as well as he did. Good work Magni!

After all is said and done, the final tally is taken.

Final Bottom three:

  • Ryan
  • Storm
  • Dilana

Ryan sings “Baba Oreilly” by The Who. One word for this one, CRAP! I love this song and Ryan‘s version was brutal, he slaughtered this song.

Storm sings “Helter Skelter” by The Beattles. Gilby loves it and rocks out singing along with her performance. Storm jumps up on the Supernova section of the stage and rocks it out infront of them for the entire song, singing from Tommy Lee‘s lap at one point and she ends it all by falling backwards into the crowd. Not a bad performance, but certainly not my favorite version of Helter Skelter.

Dilana sang “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads. Very interesting song choice, and a poor one on Dilana‘s part. It’s just weird in general and she doesn’t seem to really be pulling it together anywhere. This was Dilana’s worst performance yet, in my eyes.

Now we’re forced to sit through the usual 5 minutes of commercials before coming back to the show and getting the final verdict. Supernova confer together for quite a while over this one and talk up Ryan, saying he’s the only one to have evolved so much in the show. Then the Tommy-Hawk falls:

Ryan is eliminated from Rock Star Supernova.

August 29th Rock Star Supernova Performance Recap

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?

No More Free Starbucks Coffee

Looks like the folks over at Starbucks weren’t to fond of the idea of potentially losing a few million dollars by giving out free coffee.

The Free Starbucks Iced drink deal worked for today, but it looks like the word spread a little to quickly and a little to much and Starbucks made an official press release today saying the Free Starbucks Coffee Coupons will no longer be honored:

An email offering a free Starbucks iced coffee was distributed to a limited group of Starbucks partners (employees) in the Southeast United States on Wednesday, August 23, 2006 with instructions to forward to their group of friends and family. Unfortunately, it has been redistributed beyond the original intent and modified beyond Starbucks control. Effective immediately, this offer will no longer be valid at any Starbucks locations.

We apologize for any confusion and inconvenience as a result of this offer.

Press Release

Sorry folks, I hope you got your free starbucks coffee while the offer was good. I’ll have to keep an eye out for them screwing up again, cause this sure was a gooder while it lasted.

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.

Erika and Boogie chat. Erika tells boogie she’ll kick his ass if he is just playing her. DUH! Wake Up Erika! You’re getting WORKED like child labor in a Nike plant.

CNN Goofs Audio During Bush’s Katrina Address

Someone over at CNN is without a doubt getting fired for this one. It looks like the folks in the audio department made a bit of a mistake and the reporters voices could clearly be heard over top of Bush‘s voice during the address. The reporters call Bush an “asshole” and say things like “I have to be protected by him! *snicker*” and “his wife is a total control freak”.

Someone at CNN totally screwed up here and just bought themselves a one way ticket to pick-slip and food stamps land.

Watch the CNN Goof Video now.

UPDATE: My bad, looks like I jumped the gun and did some misreading. Apparently the anchor wasn’t talking about Bush, but instead was talking about her familly.

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.
