Rock Star: Supernova - Week 6

Dilana with Gilby Clarke - The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again"

Coolia: A solid performance although not particularly original. She proved she can front the band, as Gilby didn’t steal her spotlight.
Terry: Firs time I can say I wasn't completely captivated from beginning to end. Began surprisingly a bit weak/off for me vocally. But, she brought it back and finished fairly strong. This would have been good from most of the others but was disappointing coming from her.

Jill Gioia - Tracy Bonham's "Mother, Mother"

Coolia: I really can't stand this girl. She was annoying as she stalked around the stage in her Angus Young outfit. She didn’t even have her usual trashy sex appeal.
Terry: She looked hot! And this was possibly her most commanding stage performance to date. But, the vocals were uneven, ranging from "hell yeah" to just not all that good. But the band liked her and that will probably get her some votes.

Ryan Star - Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black"

Coolia: This was a completely ridiculous opening, with the bushy wig that he removed and dangled around his neck the rest of the number, and the stupid eye black. I couldn't believe the band praised it. He lost all the respect he gained last week.
Terry: Another brilliant take/performance! (2 weeks in a row!?) He is rapidly climbing the contending ladder if he keeps this up and could replace Storm in the final 2 (I think Dilana is a lock unless something terribly unexpected happens).

Storm Large - Queen's "We are the Champions"

Coolia: Storm has a beautiful and powerful voice, probably the purest voice of the bunch. She did a capable job with a challenging song. We all know from Idol how difficult Queen can be.
Terry: Uh.....tattoos on her lower torso suggestively pointing to her crotch!? Okay, I'm beginning to understand Tommy's fascination. I dug this mildly altered take. One of her best.

Zayra Alvarez - David Bowie's "All the Young Dudes"

Coolia: She should leave the gold outfits to Elvis. This was crappy, and the vocal was completely muddled and lost in the music. I couldn't even tell what song she was singing. Awful.
Terry: This chick is eye candy to the max and makes my head (the one on top of my shoulders....get your minds out of the gutter!) just about explode! Man, what a tush!! Holy cow!! But, as usual, her sound/style does not fit this band. The horny little teeny bobber boys must be the ones voting for her because she just doesn't fit in this thing at all. It is past time for her to go home. I shall miss her (the hot looks and sexy body, not the singing....maybe she could be a contestant for a spot in a Mime band!?).

Josh Logan with Tommy Lee - Stone Temple Pilots' "Interstate Love Song"

Coolia: Josh was hard to hear over the music too. He has a good voice but he grates on my nerves. He's completely wrong for this band.
Terry: His voice was once again completely over-powered by the music. And he missed a beat and some lyrics....I was stunned that no on in the band called him on this. Tommy kicked but,t but Josh was just okay.

Magni - Live's "The Dolphin's Cry"

Coolia: I found this as uninteresting as Magni's family stuff. Are we going to get to learn about any of the other contestants or just him?
Terry: I have to give props where props are due. I'm still not his biggest fan by any stretch, but this was one of those rare performances that was better than the original. Just terrific.

Patrice Pike - John Lennon's "Instant Karma"

Coolia: She looked like Pippi Longstocking but gave a decent if unspectacular performance.
Terry: First of all, she looked like a Rooster that had stuck it's beak in an electrical outlet. This did not work for me at all. She looked a bit crazed (like a crackwhore peacock or something) and didn't sound much better. She is very much in danger of going home.

Lukas Rossi - Radiohead's "Creep"

Coolia: Lukas is back! This was a riveting performance. I think I prefer his version to the original. He really feels the music and listens to the lyrics and delivers something exciting. I think this was the performance of the night.
Terry: Wow! The rarest of weeks where TWO performers out performed the originals! He just put himself back in contention for a spot in the final 2!

Toby Rand - Talking Heads' "Burning Down the House"

Coolia: I liked the arrangement, and he gave a decent vocal. Using the megaphone was kind of cheesy, but at least he was trying something different and seemed to be having fun up there.

Terry: Failed miserably compared to the original. I think the megaphone thing works in some cases but not in this case. Too gimmicky. Just "okay" overall.
