Rock Star: Supernova - Week 3

RECAP

Patrice Pike - Beatles' "Helter Skelter"

Terry: Good vocals but way too much smiling. Too cutesy! But, after the last 2 weeks of weak vocals I was surprised by the strength and sound in her voice.
Coolia: Solid, not particularly ground-breaking, but good


Josh Logan - Nirvana's "Come As You Are"

Terry: Too nasaly with screaching instead of power screaming. The other contestants should have kicked his butt for fighting them for this song and then butchering it like that.
Coolia: He's got a good voice but I still find him too clean cut and safe.


Storm Large - The Cars' "Just What You Needed"

Terry: Her "intensity" looked forced/fake and came across more like something fighting constipation. Blah to lame for me, but the boys seemed to dig her.
Coolia: Her vocals sounded more powerful on this - good song choice. She seemed more believable as a rock goddess - maybe it was the slutty outfit.


Lukas Rossi - The Rolling Stones' "Let's Spend the Night Together"

Terry: I loved this rendition. This guy is a huge arrogant ass but couple that with his vocal talent and stage presence and he fits this band to a tee. It's a fight to the finish with Dilana!
Coolia: Some of his moves seem like Mick imitations, but a good performance nonetheless. He's got a swagger about him but I don't find him sexy at all, which might hurt his chances to win. He looks like a mean elf from Lord of the Rings.


Jill Gioia – Free’s "All right now"

Terry: Nice cover but nothing new or original in this at all. But, good vocals and good energy.
Coolia: She showed off some pipes, confidence, and great abs. I can now picture her as potentially fronting the band instead of being its groupie


Ryan Star - CCR's "Fortunate Son"

Terry: Good but not great. Seemed a little stiff.
Coolia: Another surprisingly solid, rocking performance. Everyone is impressing me more this week, in general.


Phil Ritchie - Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit"

Terry: His best yet. Not anwhere near Lucas's level but certainly one of the contenders for "most improved." However, he looked completely stunned and wimped out when the bassist deliberately bumped him. He missed his opportunity to bump back or something to add to the fervor of the performance.
Coolia: Nice and twisted


Toby Rand - Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train"

Terry: Nowhere near as good as the original. Very disappointing.
Coolia: Dullsville - not really Toby's fault because it's a limp song but he didn't add anything to it to perk it up


Dana Andrews - Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild"

Terry: Good karaoke? Blah! This chick does not fit this band at all. Go home already.
Coolia: She belted it out, but I don't think she has the X factor. She dresses slutty but it doesnt quite work - she lacks the sex appeal of some of the other girls.


Magni - Stone Temple Pilots' "Plush"

Terry: Was not a fan of his at all until this performance. Still not one of my favorites but he has just snatched the "most improved" award for Phil's hands.
Coolia: This was just aiight for me. He showed he doesn't have Weiland's pipes and I really disagree with his decision to wear sunglasses for the 2nd week in a row. Remember, Magni, we already knew Bono pretty well before he started wearing his fly glasses. We don't know you.


Zayra Alvarez - REM's "Everybody Hurts"

Terry: I love her voice and oh man is she SO hot!....but, her "sound" just doesn't fit this band. Too Bjork. I was stunned when the boys showered her with kudos. Just stunned.
Coolia: She put an eerie spin on this old chestnut. She sounded a little flat to me at times, but she really hit the notes and held them on the final "hold on"s. I agree with Buddah - she's more Bjork than Joan Jett.


Jenny Galt - Incubus' "Drive"

Terry: Too Sheryl Crow. Not enough hard edge rock in this (or her?). She needs to hop on the same bus home with Dana.
Coolia: She definitely made it her own, unfortunately she made it something inappropriately soft for this band. I like that she plays the guitar. She's just too much of a nice girl for these guys.


Dilana - The Cranberries' "Zombi"

Terry: This crazy chick just owns the stage! I wasn't that into her rendition (I like the original MUCH better) but she did make it her own and did keep my attention. One of these days she's going to pull a bat out and bite its head off...and swallow it! (she has to top Ozzy...this chick doesn't settle for second best).

Coolia: Another psycho and captivating performance from the Metal Medusa. I'm starting to think she might be too hard for this band and more appropriate for Cradle of Filth or something, but anyway, she's awesome.


RESULTS

Jenny was sent packing. She can hope that the Lilith Fair starts up again someday.
