Rock Star: Supernova: Last Performance Night
The finalists sing their original and a new cover. For his cover Toby starts in on Karma Police while wearing Wayfarers, fingerless gloves and a denim jacket. Did I just slip and fall into 1985? He falters early on but does a bit better once he gets warmed up. He invites Magni up to play with him on Throw It Away. I thought this song catchy the first few times, now I'm just bored by it. And enough with the EVS, writing it on Magni's head is just a step too far. He's gimmicky and cheesy and still my pick as the Supernova front runner.
Lukas begins slow singing the Coldplay song Fix You and showcasing that voice that can just be so sweet when he lets it. Then he turns it into a rock anthem which is a risk but works for him although his rooster strut doesn't quite mesh with the song. He doesn't play to an audience the way Toby Rand does but he's damn fun to watch. He sings his song Headspin while playing acoustic guitar. Not a great move in my opinion. And oh look, Paula Abdul is in the audience.
Dilana sings Roxanne with the entire group as backup (looks like Lukas is trying to upstage her a bit). She seems to have recovered from her calf injury. Before she sings Super Soul she tells us it is "a freedom song" not an angry song. Oh really? Has she listened to her own words? The boys are wowed as usual but I suspect they are just humoring the little lady.
Magni sings Hush form Deep Purple which is an odd choice in my opinion. He follows it up with his song When The Time Comes. His song is actually becoming more appealing to me as time goes on. He's still pretty much generic rock and the band gives him the same sort of pat on the head they dish out to Dilana.
In my opinion, it's down to Toby or Lukas and the power of the Rand Wagon versus the Rossi Posse. The blue-eyed Aussie popster or the Canadian glam rocker. On his blog Dave Navarro says in his opinion it should be between Lukas and Dilana. Certainly they were the early front runners but I think that no one anticipated the popularity of Toby.
The results so far are Dilana, Toby, Lukas and Magni. Dilana in the top spot? That's got to change.
