I myself am mixed about should a SuperNova pick a women or not. I do think that having women on the show competing for a slot in a band that they have no chance to win is wrong. And I am not sure that they had no chance....but that chance was very small. If you think about what percent of vocalists in successful HARD rock bands are female.....that is small....very small. Also, you have the dynamic of three guys writing songs that are from a guys point of view. If a women sings them it adds a different element....not only to the songs but the image of the band.
I do think that it was wrong to edit Dilana like she was some crazy women was totally wrong. I have seen many people here say Dilana lost because of the things she did with the media people and her reaction afterwards. At the same time, I see video footage of two members from Poison get in a fist fight with each other in the middle of the concert in front of 15,000. Motley Crue, GNR, and Metallica are no different....and neither are these guys. Each of those bands have written tell all books about their careers and Dilana is an angel compared to them. What she said in that interview is kindergarden compared to stupid stuff the other guys have done. It was all done to manipulate the people into either not voting for her or into being ok with her not being chosen.
But with all that said......SuperNova had the right to pick whoever they want for their band. If they feel a male (Lukas) is the best fit all power to them. I just feel some of what went on here is very wrong. Lukas bashed the others also....especially in the beginning or should I say.....especially when they saw fit to show it. In a lot of ways I think the biggest difference between Dilana and Lukas is that she is female.
Actually I think the reason they have the females on in the first place is to appeal to more television viewers....no females probably means less female viewers.
