Rockstar Supernova Elimination Show Recap 9/6/06

If you are looking for the Half Nekkid Thursday post, it is the next one down. Or click here to go straight to it.

Ok here’s a quick recap of last night’s elimination show. I’m not going into a long in depth look because I fast forwarded through most of it.

Supernova picked Magni to sing with them on the FOURTH UNRELEASED SUPERNOVA SONG. Yeah. Whoopie-de-doo! :P Can you tell I'm enthusiastic? I really wasn’t that impressed and then I fast forwarded through most of it. Now Magni did play guitar on it and that worked for it. But that was about it.

Then they picked Toby for the encore on his original song. And he won a “tricked out” Honda Ridgeline.
I wonder if winning the car on this show will be like the curse for Survivor (another Mark Burnett reality show). For those of you who don’t know. When it gets down to the end of the competition, the folks on Survivor compete to win a care and a badass getaway. Well for the last 10+ seasons of Survivor, whoever has won the car has not won the game. I wonder if that curse carries over to Rockstar:Tommy Lee’s Unit.

Then it was time for the bottom three. And everyone was in jeopardy. First up was Storm Large who sang “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd in dedication to her mom. It was a great performance. Too mellow to keep her in the game (maybe she was ready to use that as a way to bow out of the competition?). But she was crying in the end. Then the camera cut over to Jason Newstead and he was crying. Wait, didn’t this guy used to be in Metallica. From the late 80s until the late 90s? And he’s friggin crying? I’m all about a good cry. Don’t get me wrong. But you don’t do it on international TV if you used to be in Metallica. I still respect the guy and all, but that might not have been the best thing for his image.

Dilana Smith was next and sang…I forget what she sang. Probably because it sucked. Oh yeah! She sang a punk rock version of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You To Want Me.” And I didn’t like it. That’s a great song, and she really f’ed it up. But it was upbeat which shows she actually wants to win this as opposed to Storm who (in my opinion) has gotten all the exposure she wanted from this show. Oh yeah, Dilana had the big bouncer guy carry her out into the audience onto a platform.

Last was Lukas Rossi, our Canuck Lemur King. He sang his original song “Headspin” again. I think it was a basic example of his attitude that Gilby Clarke touched on the other day (see the webisode spoiler). The attitude basically is that Lukas does just enough to get by because he is Lukas. That takes balls. I really hope he doesn’t win though. I would not, I REPEAT NOT, buy a Rockstar album if he wins. To be perfectly honest, I won’t buy one anyway, but I will be swayed further away from purchasing one if he wins.

In the end, Tommy “The Tripod” Lee pussed out and made Jason be the new hatchet man to send a rocker home. Ok, apparently Tommy has a huge wang, but small balls. Anywho, they cut Storm. Which sucks because we can’t watch her perform next week. But on the plus side, she doesn’t have the albatross around her next that is…SUPERNOVA.

What did you think of the show?
Actually what do you think:
1. Is it a blessing or a curse to win this show and front Supernova?
2. Will they actually finish the tour before Tommy Lee shades out?
3. Is Dave Navarro shooting himself in the proverbial foot by taking his new band, The Panic Channel, on tour with Supernova?
4. Which former rocker will front the House Band on the tour?
5. Exactly how much is the House Band going to overshadow Supernova?
6. And how lame is a "tricked out" Honda Ridgeline?

hmmm...
Toby did a good job again.
Tommy Lee has no balls, agreed.
Dilana may have totally given me a FU FRIDAY post,
and Apparently they like Lukas,
that's about it.

1. Is it a blessing or a curse to win this show and front Supernova?
curse ;) c'mon it's Tommy Lee...

2. Will they actually finish the tour before Tommy Lee shades out?
lmao. ummm no...

3. Is Dave Navarro shooting himself in the proverbial foot by taking his new band, The Panic Channel, on tour with Supernova?
probably, but no doubt he'll find more success.

4. Which former rocker will front the House Band on the tour?
Dilana...

5. Exactly how much is the House Band going to overshadow Supernova?
The House Band KICKS ASS

6. And how lame is a "tricked out" Honda Ridgeline?
oxymoronic... (is that a word?)

Is there a prize for the most correct answers given?

now I'm going back to look at that towel pic again ;)

I agree, Dilana has dug a hole and needs to jump her Bi-Polar "ASS" in it.She has gone from BAD to WORSE. I never understand Lukas,always
sounds half asleep, Magni
is damn good BUT....I truly believe the Lil' Mate from DownUnder is going to take first prize. PEACE :)

Well.. as far as Jason Newsted goes.. Is it just me, or was there something going on between Newsted and Storm?? Why else would Tommy pass it to Jason to axe her.. as if to say - it may come more gently coming from you Jas...

Over the last couple of eps, i've noticed some extra attention paid to Storm by Newsted -- but i'm glad he didn't think with his groin!!

Storm is good - but i dont' think she could front that band.. maybe Navaro's band.. but not them!

It'll be either Dilana or Toby - that's my early prediction..

Now i'll actually answer your questions;

1. Is it a blessing or a curse to win this show and front Supernova? -- Well that depends on your perspective.. these guys are working for it.. but i think they'll be a one hit band and disband..

2. Will they actually finish the tour before Tommy Lee shades out? - I think they will - but like i said, i think he's too busy as it is.. and burn out year end next year.


3. Is Dave Navarro shooting himself in the proverbial foot by taking his new band, The Panic Channel, on tour with Supernova? - Yes! Now you have 3 bands competing for one show... If i were the members of the House Band - i'd be pissed!


4. Which former rocker will front the House Band on the tour? - Storm will front them!

5. Exactly how much is the House Band going to overshadow Supernova? - Man - that's a good one! They are an awesome band. I think Tommy Lee makes Supernova - he's larger than life... I think Gilby Clark is a bit of a dink! Remember how many time he's bitched out Lukas for turning his back on the audience?? How many times did he turn his back on the crowd last episode during the SuperNova orig. tune!?????? The guys a dink!

6. And how lame is a "tricked out" Honda Ridgeline? -- They're a sponsor... don't bite the hand that feeds ya!
