Rock Star: Supernova: Week 9 Elimination
Toby gets the encore. He sings as if he's got a train to catch. I notice that Lukas is the only one sitting down when Toby comes and sings with the rest of the rockers. It's becoming more and more apparent that Lukas doesn't quite play well with others. While Lukas is better as a solo, Toby really needs the interaction of others in order to thrive. I think if the band were choosing based on who would be the most fun to hang out with Toby would win by a country mile.
The bottom three are Ryan, Lukas and Dilana.
Ryan sings Baba O'Riley. He tells the band he is going to blow their minds but instead he mainly jumps around and screams. His flailing around is a bit embarrassing. He's just an overeager pup, all intensity and yelling.
Storm does Helter Skelter. She jumps around and screams too (is this a last chance to dance type of thing?) but it's somehow less annoying if only because she's so cute.
Dilana sings Psycho Killer which she begins with a truly terrifying a cappella moment. It's better once the music gets going but still, I'm just floored by this one. It's just terrible and it reminds me of all the reasons why I didn't like her in the beginning.
And yet, it's Ryan who gets sent home. I have no idea why they gave Ryan the ax. I can only assume that Dilana's "credit" with the band bought her a free pass this week. His farewell speech to the band is just a touch bitter. And with good reason. After all, the band doesn't give him any decent reason for saying goodbye. I wasn't a fan of the "dark horse" but this should not have been his week.
