Mellow won out for me this week.
Storm Large – Queen “We Are the Champions”
Could she be any better? Me thinks not. Beautiful delivery of a super difficult song. Great stage presence again. I agreee that I'd like to see her hard rocker side come back, though, for next week.
Magni – Live “The Dolphin's Cry”
Perfect voice for Live's music. Beautiful.
Toby Rand – Talking Heads “Burning Down the House”
He would've been #1 if not for his silly megaphone bit. He took a dumb risk.
Dilana – The Who “Won't Get Fooled Again”
She did well. Placement here is more a function of me not liking the song & finding it was a lot of screaming. She looked great up there with Gilby and Gilby seemed comfortable interacting with her.
Ryan Star – The Rolling Stones “Paint it Black”
A+ for freaky cool performance. C- for arrangement of the song & vocals. It's a fantastic, edgy song you just shouldn't mess with.
Lukas Rossi – Radiohead “Creep”
I'm really, really trying to like him. Marty did a better job with the vocals last season, IMHO. Lukas absolutely has that "what's he gonna do next?" thing in his performances, though. I like that part. Just not convinced he's who I want to see fronting Supernova.
Jill Gioia – Tracy Bonham “Mother Mother”
I think this was my favorite performance of hers. She didn't sex it up, she just sang some badass lyrics.
Zayra Alvarez – David Bowie “All the Young Dudes”
I love her voice, she's just so bizzaro and so not right for this band. She didn't do anything this week to change that perception.
Josh Logan – Stone Temple Pilots “Interstate Love Song”
I so disagree with Supernova. This sucked. I hate his voice. The only time I liked it was on Santoria last week. Can he NOT open his mouth all the way? And his stage performance could've rocked, but he played his guitar & blew it. He's not even trying.
Patrice Pike – John Lennon “Instant Karma”
Her voice is starting to wear on me. I liked it the first few weeks. Now I'm finding it's pretty one dimensional. And her smiles during her songs are killing me.
