Rockstar: Supernova: Finale

by Deidre Woollard, posted Sep 13th 2006 11:55PM
supernova4(S02E22) Well, as was reported earlier, they won't really be called Supernova now that a judge has ruled they can't use that name but the ragtag rockers have picked their lead singer. Like Big Brother's finale last night, this one was a total snore resulting in a reveal that everyone already knew anyway (anyone who reads internet rumors that is).

It's not surprising to see Toby and Magni in the bottom two since Dilana and Lukas have been the chosen ones since the beginning but I had hoped that the Toby fans would skew the voting. Was the Rand Wagon just a fiction to keep us involved in the show?

Once again Magni sings Fire and he does a great job but he seems to know he is going home. He's a great musician. He could be a strong member of any band, he's just not going to bring nations of ladies to their knees.

Toby breaks out White Wedding. I wonder if Toby performs in 1980s cover bands. He's quite fit but might want to stay away from buttoning shirts up to his throat, it makes him look a bit too beefy.

What is Lukas doing in a Survivor commercial? Hello, foreshadowing.

Lukas sings Bittersweet Symphony, Dilana sing Zombie and Toby takes on Somebody Told Me. This is all a big slice of filler. Of all of them Lukas seems the most passionate. I realize that I have become so accustomed to Toby pulling a stunt three quarters of the way through a song that I am waiting for him to rip off his shirt or do a flip or something. Instead, he mainly seems to be rushing through it.

The band wastes no time is dispatching Toby who seems to know he was fighting a losing battle anyway. It's no big surprise when Lukas gets the nod as the lead singer. After all, as I said after the first episode, it's been his to lose all along. Dilana manages to hold it together especially since they offer her the services of the house band on tour and Gilby and Dave Navarro offer to help her create an album. I suspect the final group of rockers have known that it was going to be Lukas for a while.

A fashion aside, Lukas should rethink the long coat. For someone so height-challenged, a shorter jacket would be much better. He's not bad with the band but I suspect Jason Newsted's going to be nagging him about closing off his voice for months to come.

Lukas won the competition by miles. Yes, Dilana is star-quality, Toby is cute, Magni can sing his ass off. Lukas was the standout from DAY ONE, any fool could see it, as he is the total package. Anyone who disagrees of his singing style or look should take a look at YouTube.com and see his work prior to the SN show. He's nothing short of raw talent and star material. He finally has the exposure he deserves and has worked for half of his life.

It is good to know that Dilana is out. She was crazy in the head. What is it enough to have good a voice. Other factors are also taken into consideration. One minute she shows so much hatred and then the next love is leaking from you know where. So much agression and jealousy exhibited during the competition. It was not becoming of a supernova. So its good she is out or she would end up being a big pain. It was a difficult choice to make as all the singers gave their best. All the best for the group.

Im so glad that Lucas won. he went there to win and showed what he can do. He has the look, the voice and the stage presence that Tommy and the boys were looking for. Natually Lucas the obviouse choice.

To all Lukas Rossi doubters...GET A FRICKING LIFE!!!
The world watched and the world voted and guess what...they chose HIM, so get over it! You won't buy the CD and you won't support the group? Who the frick is asking for your support? This band will do quite well without you thank you, they have chosen someone with less ego and who is more down to earth than any of the other contestants. Lukas was himself at all times, he didn't try to out do or out play anyone, he simply did what the group asked of all the contestants, perform and get better at it... no doubt he will continue to get better with the group's coaching...more power to him!
In regard to the name calling...how old are you people? Take a good long look in the mirror and see what improvements you need before you make immature comments about other people. Lukas Rossi is a winner because he chose to conduct himself as such...what's your story?

The criticism of Lukas amazes me. Sure, he looks and sounds different, but most people don't identify with lead singers of a rock bands instantly. This kid can rock! He has passion, stage presence, and is absolutely a natural performer. Take a step back and look at the bands they covered on this show. He fits the genre very well....AND HE's DIFFERENT - THANK GOD!

It's all about the music! While I think Toby would have been another good choice, this kid has the tools to be something special. ...especially with the guidance and direction of those talented rockers behind him. If you don't like him, go hide somewhere. I have a feeling he's going to be around for a while.

Fight on! Rock on!

Alright Lukas, congrats. Would have been happy with either Lukas or Dilana, so both came out with sweet deals. Here in Toronto, Lukas has paid his dues, so he deserves his spot in the limelite, and if he plays it right, he;'ll go far. Lots of people he's worked with have nothing but good things to say about him. Jane & Lawrence are proud of him.

Dilana was my favorite performer. Many people looked poorly on her for Ragging on her competitors. If that was a good enough reason to write someone off, our radios would be silent. I was very disappointed with the outcome. AS much as I like Delana, I expected to see Toby come out on top. Toby has the stuff of a true Rock Star, and gets along well with other Rockers. If anyone reading this has info on any music links for Toby or Delana, please post it.

It was pretty obvious after the first few episodes that it would come down to Lukas and Delana. It took so long to weed out the American Idol rejects!
