Wow. So much drama occurred on "Rock Star's" last elimination episode that the residual effects alarmingly spilled over. In short--Dilana lost it.
As the Rockers sat down for an especially tense dinner, Dilana's controversial comments came up for discussion. To lighten the mood, Storm declared a toast to "Dilana's first spanking," but Dilana wasn't down for that. Questioned by the Rockers, an emotional Dilana apologized, explained and cried. Ryan said her comments were disrespectful; Storm consoled her and Lukas reminded her that "life is a constant clinic."
But nothing could comfort Dilana: "I felt so weak and vulnerable." She wasn't kidding. As Lukas and Magni tried to alleviate her pain, she flipped off the camera and smashed a wine glass, cutting Magni's head. Though the Rockers sympathized, Lukas questioned if she could handle the stress of being in Supernova. Ryan said simply, "It's like she's self destructing."
Dilana was still reeling the next day as everyone took part in a photo shoot with In Touch magazine. Some Rockers were more comfortable than others. Storm, once a model, was a natural. And Lukas ("I ain't no model, man") successfully expressed his "Goth, glam, dirty, rock" self. On the flip side, Toby, Ryan and Magni felt somewhat awkward. Dilana, revealing that she's nowhere near down for the count, eventually managed to get it together for a strong photo shoot.
This week's song selection brought a new twist: instead of fighting for their songs, fans chose which tunes each Rocker would sing. The Rockers excitedly and nervously discovered their songs with fan comments attached. The support and positive words from the public were a nice shot in the arm--especially for Dilana.
Rehearsal proved challenging. Lukas, trying to outdo Dilana's version of Nirvana's "Lithium," said he liked neither the song nor Nirvana, which concerned House Band leader Paul Mirkovich: "At this point, it's not as memorable as Dilana's because Dilana loved the song." And Dilana, practicing Tracy Bonham's "Mother Mother," was feeling more confident. "This horrific thing that happened to me is the best thing that could have happened to me." She's probably right.
Let's hope that not only Dilana, but all the Rockers channel their emotions into powerful performances.
