~* ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA: And Then There Were Four... *~

So it's down to Lukas, Toby, Magni and Dilana.

I'm still repulsed with Dilana so I am not gonna be a happy camper if she wins. I have a sneaking suspicion that her frog-in-a-lilypad look is just there to elicit sympathy votes (she injured one of her legs so she was in crutches decorated with jungle leaves or whatever. She's up on stage standing and hopping with her one good leg).

Lukas Rossi surprisingly hit the Bottom Three for the first time this week after debuting his original [Rise Electric] song "Headspin" which was about his mother and after reinventing Bon Jovi's "Livin' On a Prayer" into a moving stripped-down & re-arranged version. I am torn as to whether Lukas should win or not. After hearing a lot of his songs from his two previous bands Cleavage & Rise Electric, I think it would be a waste of his talent if he got stuck with Supernova. So far, I don't like the Supernova tracks they've debuted in the show (except for the one that Magni sang this week). I think it would be better if Lukas kept on with the kind of music he made with Cleavage/Rise Electric which was sort of hmm, emo-rock/punk-rock. Supernova is cheesy old school rock music (again, save for "It's All Love" which Magni sang, which did not even remotely sound like the 3 other tracks they debuted). Lukas can probably do a Marty Casey in this case. (After being 2nd place to JD Fortune in Rock Star INXS, Marty Casey carried on with his original band, The Lovehammers). I'll still be a Rossi Posse anyway.

Toby Rand. Memorable butt exposures on the reality show. The beefcake of the Mayan Theater. The naughty cake-throwing practical joker of the mansion. Popularized the Aussie slang "evs" but he is the anti-thesis of EVS at this point after he wonderfully kicked ass towards the end of the season. Although, I still think Marty Casey did a much better rockin' version of The Killers' "Mr. Brightside" last season than Toby did this week. The Thunder from Down Under may very well win this gig and I'll be very happy with that. So far, he clicks with the Supernova guys esp. Tommy Lee. And his original song "Throw It Away" will never fail in making everyone experience quasi-chemical dreaming with that "uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh" hook. He will go a long way from being a part-time carpet store clerk... especially after winning a new Honda Element for his catchy original song.

Magni the magnificent Iceman. He is such a good-natured guy. He's so nice that I wished Dilana fell off the window sill after she threw that wine glass on the floor and accidentally hit Magni on the head. The poor bald guy's forehead bled and that immortalized Dilana into being the crazy witch-bitch of the mansion. Anyway, back to Magni. He's literally come a long way from being this famous rock star back home in Iceland. Honestly, his performances rarely wowed me but he remains to be a consistently good performer. Well, whatever happens to him, I wish him all the best coz he really deserves it.
