LAST EDITED ON 09-13-06 AT 01:37 AM (EST)
Guess I spoke a little too soon last week because EPMB tossed a curveball with another performance night. If only we could squeeze out a few more weeks of performance nights but alas this wonderful show will soon be over. Supernova will be picking a lead singer to croon their crappy tunes come tomorrow night. Next Tuesday night, I know I will be having the shakes because the show isn’t on anymore. Thank goodness for taped episodes which should help with rehabilitation and keep me out of Betty Ford.
Remember that a love list is all about you and whatever you want to base it on. As long as you’re being true to your feelings, then it is correct.
1) Dilana – The Police “Roxanne” & Original “Supersoul” (1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,3,1) Fantastic set. Dilana was back in a big way. Some may still have issues with her personality and probably won’t recognize how wonderful she was tonight, but to each their own. So happy that Dilana was #1 in early voting because it’s deserved. Every time I now hear The Police doing “Roxanne” on the radio, first thought will be Dilana did it better Stinger. Glad her torn muscle was healed enough to be able to rock out “Supersoul” the way it was meant to be. To me, Dilana and Ryan are the breakout stars from this season and I will gladly fork over any dough needed for a CD or concert tickets. No need to profess my love for Dilana yet again but I will, love you Dilana
2) Lukas Rossi – Coldplay “Fix You” & Original “Headspin” (3,2,5,5,7,1,3,7,2,4) He sang with clarity and emotion. The Coldplay tune left me a little cold but loved the acoustic version of “Headspin”. Lukas and Dilana have been the frontrunners to win the gig since week one, so it’s fitting they finish #1 & #2. I’ve always dug Lucky Charms style and rock persona but when his vocals have been bad, they’ve been real bad. Would pay to see Lukas perform live but the thought driving to the show would be, man I hope I get the spectacular Lukas instead of the mumbling stumbling drunken sailor performance.
3) Toby Rand – Radiohead “Karma Police” & Original “Throw it away” (10,3,10,7,6,6,6,3,5,3) Ehh it was okay, probably felt the ehh feeling towards this Aussie six or seven times this season. Think he has a real shot to win but it’s just not for me. Guess I just like the dark bruiting rockstar over the happy glib rockstar, just a personal preference. If Toby does win, ehh okay whatever.
4) Magni – Deep Purple “Hush” & Original “When the Time Comes” (13,4,3,4,4,4,5,5,4,5) I like the Iceman, I really do, but who the heck is voting for this guy? He is obviously a wonderful guy and a great singer but I like my ice cream flavored with chunks of surprises, he is just plain vanilla. No way he wins now that his original was called out for being what it is, unmemorable. Good luck to Magni, he should have no problem now remaining atop the charts in Iceland for years to come.
Booted: Storm Large (5,6,4,2,3,5,7,4,6,2) Every time Stormy performed the words “mmm mmm mmm” came out of my mouth. She is so sexy hot and is the epitome of a MILF. Fantastic stage performer, fabulous voice, and love those crazy eyes. Hope this appearance on Rockstar does lead to bigger and better things for this 37-year-old. Give the rest of us mid 30 something’s the hope that we’re still climbing the mountain instead of going down.
The order the contestants appeared …
Toby Rand – Radiohead “Karma Police” & Original “Throw it away”
Lukas Rossi – Coldplay “Fix You” & Original “Headspin”
Dilana – The Police “Roxanne” & Original “Supersoul”
Magni – Deep Purple “Hush” & Original “When the Time Comes”
Coming up tomorrow night after the finale will be a complete show love list. Would you have liked to seen more of any early boot or did they deserve their bootee slot? Did you think a rawker didn’t deserve to get as far as they did? Once again, thanks to everyone who has participated in this weekly thread. Hope we get to do it again next summer!
