I was so sad to see Storm go tonight. Wish You Were Here is my favourite Pink Floyd song, and she did a fabulous job! I always get a bit teary-eyed whenever I hear it, because of the memories I have associated with that song, but once they cut to Jason, I kinda lost it. Damn reality shows making me emotional!

I was hoping that Lukas or Dilana would have been cut tonight, but oh well.

I've never seen the show until tonight. I thought Storm's version of WYWH was kinda drab and dull

So from the last couple of pages, I gather Magni & Tobey are the remaining faves?

The song wasn't well suited at all to her voice, but I think she knew that and that she was out the door tonight anyway, so she was doing it for personal reasons (dedicated it to her mother - who was a schizophrenic and who died not too long ago). I think it was the emotion that got to a lot of people...

Toby and Lukas are the front-runners at this point (Toby is perfect for them, I hate Lukas' voice). Although, you never know about Dilana, you'd think she'd have no chance at this point, but Supernova may have wanted her all along. A lot of people really love Magni (myself included) because he has a great voice, is not pretentious or poser-ish, and is a genuinely good guy. Heavy voting for him to make it to the finale since it seems like the band would cut him at any point, but we don't think he'll win this (nor want him to, don't think Magni wants to at this point either). Toby and Magni are both big U2 fans, too bad the show doesn't appear to have clearance to use any U2 stuff...

Lukas has been my favorite since i began watching maybe 5 weeks ago, but i think Toby would be better suited to front this band. Lukas would be perfect with a much younger band.....

I don't think any of the 4 finalists have to worry too much at this point. They are all very talented in different ways. They're getting their exposure & all will do well.

Wow, lots of Magni love on the U2 boards! I think he's got a great voice but isn't a great entertainer...

I like Lukas but as others have mentionned I'm not so sure he would make a good fit - he's a bit edgier and darker than the music Supernova has been producing. Perhaps Toby is their man after all....

I agree with lady about Magni, great voice but no magnetism.

Toby is boy band material, and too gimmicky. If Supernova wants to go in that direction to get attention, I'm sure Jill will have a laugh at that.

Lukas is riveting to watch and Dilana has some amazing moments too but who knows?

Regardless, I don't see Supernova lasting too long as a band anyway no matter who wins.

Very good point. Never thought of it that way but I must agree.

One album, one tour is what I've always assumed. Tommy and Crue have been touring alot over the past couple of years, and Jason has openly admitted that he sees the show as an opportunity to pimp Voivod. Still, it'll be decent exposure for whoever wins (and I use the term "win" loosely).

Navarro's Panic Channel was just added to the tour. Rolling Stone just gave their debut album 1 1/2 stars, so that should be some quality entertainment.

Screw SN and Panic Channel, I want to see The House Band! Amazing musicians.

Time for the last weekly intersection of Rockstar and U2. It's Magni again, doing two U2 tunes (audio only) here: http://www.fm957.is/?pageid=1781

First link is One, second link is a really good full version of In A Little While...think SunBloc was wanting to hear more of that...

Thank you! The other two songs are awesome, too! Stan is hilarious - I think I read about it on TWOP, but had never heard it before - and his voice is suited to PJ/Eddie Vedder.

Spoiler for Tuesday (highlight)...



Each did a cover and original - the originals were the same as last week. Lukas did his original acoustic, and Toby had Magni playing guitar on his.

Toby - Karma Police (Radiohead)
Lukas - Fix You (Coldplay)
Dilana - Roxanne (The Police) - Toby, Magni and Lukas sing backup on this
Magni - Hush (Deep Purple)

Thanks Pop Artist for the Magni songs!

Sweet - Storm on Ellen?! Can't wait! Thanks, Lila.

BTW - I just found out that Tommy Lee will be on Ellen on Tuesday!
