I wanted to keep this blog from being a complete and total shill for Rock Star: Supernova, so I promised myself I wouldn't post about this past week's performance's. Fuck it. If this is true, then the whole damn show is fixed, and I don't want to be a part of it.
Oh, and the whole thing with only certain parts of the site working with the Firefox browser is bullshit. Come on, Microsoft! Make a plugin so that your media player works in the number 2 browser. IE's overhead and security flaws are not something I want to have to accept just to be able to watch video clips of the show.
I thought it was just a technical glitch when I tried to vote for a couple of the "rockers" (god that term is so lame! Come up with something else to call them, Brooke. You sound like a tool). After 20 minutes of trying to get through, I gave up.
But now I think there may be a conspiracy to keep Lukas Rossi from the bottom 3 every week. He absolutely sucks, but if the show is rigged to let him win, then there is nothing our voting can do to get rid of him. The guys in the band are constantly blowing smoke up his ass. His performance of Nirvana's "Lithium" was uninspired and his stage presence was boring. Ryan Star, who got the Tommyhawk then next night, had 1000 times the energy and looked like he was just plain having fun. Oh, and his singing sounded more natural, too. Lukas's voice always sounds lke he is forcing it. That's fine if you are only performing one song, but what happens when he is on tour and has to sing for over an hour straight? I don't think he will be able to keep it up.
Storm Large's performance of Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life" made the hair on my arms stand at attention, especially when Toby showed up in the background to sing the male part. The band accused him of stealing some of Storm's thunder, but I think her willingness to let one of her competitors on stage with her to perform an inegral part of the song just shows that she knows what it takes to give the best performance. The song is more important than the performer's ego. Tommy Lee should take a cue from Storm's dedication to an accurate performance of the music. Then again, if he did that, he would still be in the Crue.
Toby took what should have been a boring song (Billy Idol's dated "Rebel Yell") and brought the crowd into the performance, literally. He pulled half a dozen hotties from the front row on stage with him for the final verse. That Aussie knows how to put on a show. I still pick him to win, if the contest isn't really rigged.
Even Dilana's energy would have pulled a couple of votes from me, had MSN's voting site not given me error after error. She kicked Lukas's ass, but still should have been in the bottom 3 (except with Lukas and Magni, instead of Storm and Ryan).
To add insult to injury, Supernova pegged Lukas to perform their new song, and I couldn't help but wonder what it would have sounded like with any of the other contestants. Hopefully we wont have to wait long to find out.
OH! Are these guys prohibited from performing Motley, GNR, or Metallica songs? I don't seem to recall any of the rockers singing songs made famous by the guys who are judging them.
