Rockstar: Supernova, Week 2

Rs200 For Week Two of Rockstar: Supernova, it was easy to sum up the majority of the contestants performances -- Absolutely Average.

With the exception of a few, nobody blew me away, nor did they impress band members Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted or Gilby Clarke. Host Dave Navarro attempted to maintain more of a positive vibe, but even he was tested with a few of the contestants.

On another note, I can already tell that whoever wins this season will have definitely earned it. On more than one occasion Tuesday night, Lee and Newsted saw certain performances differently, already allowing me to wonder whether the current Supernova bandmates even know what they are looking for. Newsted and Clarke come off looking like they are looking for a true rocker; Lee acts at times like he is looking for his next girlfriend on the side.

It's all still up for debate, as were the performances. Below is a rundown of this week's winner's and losers, including last week's rankings.

CLICK HERE to watch each performance, read the reviews below and tell us who YOU think should go on and who should go home. Please comment below on your favorites as well!

WEEK TWO PERFORMANCES

Best of the Crop:

1) Toby Rand - Song: "Somebody Told Me" - Another week, another knockout performance of The Killers cover for the Aussie singer. His vocal range is really on target, proving he can do more than just the acoustic renditions. This week's performance also showed he can do the new stuff as well as the classics
Last Week: #1

2) Magni - Song: "My Generation" - A nice bounceback from last week for the Icelandic rocker. This week's Who track was spot on. His vocals fit perfectly with the song, and the crowd and band responded the same.
Last Week: #13

Solid...But Not Perfect:

3) Chris Pierson - Song: "Take Me Out" - What a turnaround for Pierson! While his on-stage performance still needs a little work, his singing on the Franz Ferdinand cover was really excellent. He should be safe this week.
Last Week: #15

4) Patrice Pike - Song: "Heart-Shaped Box" - Pike carried the Nirvana cover very well. Great vocals, held her own on guitar and on-stage presence was really nice.
Last Week: #4

5) Lukas Rossi - Song: "Don't Panic" - Turning it down a notch was not an issue this week for Rossi. His rendition of the Coldplay song was a good one, and while some notes were forced at times, his vocals still prove he has more ability than most of the other contestants.
Last Week: #3

6) Josh Logan - Song: "With Arms Wide Open" - While I'm not a fan of Creed, Logan at times made the song listenable. He does need to tone down the soul aspect, turning that part down at the rock up when necessary. This song just wasn't as good a fit for him this week.
Last Week: #2

Average Sound...But Not Terrible:

7) Ryan Star - Song: "Jumpin' Jack Flash" - A solid performance, vocals were fine, good support from the house band...but there's still something missing from his performance. I can't put my finger on it yet.
Last Week: #9

8) Storm Large - Song: "Surrender" - Again, another solid performance just like last week from Storm. But the wow factor is just not there yet.
Last Week: #11

9) Phil Ritchie - Song: "If You Could Only See" - The Tonic cover was a good choice for the east coast native. I still don't think he has the voice to carry this band. But he's certainly on track for a pass this week.
Last Week: #14

10) Jenny Galt - Song: "Tainted Love" - She started off weak, finished off strong with the Soft Cell song. I still don't believe she has the rock vocal abilities to win, but like Phil, she has earned the right to stick around for another week.
Last Week: #12

11) Dana Andrews - Song: "Born To Be Wild" - I swear this girl needs to make the jump to American Idol. Nothing bad about her performance...nothing fantastic either. Had a real cheesy quality to it.
Last Week: #10

My Bottom Three:

12) Dilana - Song: "Ring of Fire" - Wow. I really don't know what any of the bandmates saw in her. I don't care how dark she tries to come across -- I really think this woman's abilities are limited.
Last Week: #5

13) Jill Gioia - Song: "Violet" - Hole covers, screaming, and crappy impersonations equal a one-way ticket out of here. I was not impressed with Gioia at all.
Last Week: #6

14) Zayra Alvarez - Song: "You Really Got Me" - Like Newsted said Tuesday night, I don't even think Alvaraz has a clue that this is a contest for a rock band. Her cover of The Kinks hit was probably one of the worst renditions this season AND last season. She needs to prove herself tonight (if she ends up in the bottom three) or go home.
Last Week: #8

Tune into CBS tonight (Wednesday) to find out who earned the tonight's Encore performance, who ended up in the bottom three and who will be the second to leave the competition.

Absolutely right Leane! Although I think it's mainly Tommy Lee with that issue, and that guy is a clown.
