My apologies for my TVW absence during Week 3 of Rockstar: Supernova. We're back for Week 4, and we're wondering how Zayra (right) is still here. Will this week spell the end for the no-talent contestant? TV Watchers is hoping so, though Week 4 provides many (un)worthy candidates for the bottom three.

favorites as well!
Below is a rundown of this week's winner's and losers...
WEEK FOUR PERFORMANCES
Best of the Crop:
1) Lukas Rossi - Song: "Bittersweet Symphony" (The Verve) - This
guy just gets it. Totally gets it. First off, a great choice of song.
Second, he took it to another level of rock. Third, his on-stage
presence is impeccable. Lukas remains my pick to win it all.
2) Magni - Song: "Heroes" (David Bowie) - While he wasn't all
over the stage (and the band ripped him for that), his vocals were
perfect and he delivered the Bowie cover with style.
3) Dilana - Song: "Time After Time" (Cyndi Lauper) - Ok, I've
received some flack for ripping Dilana, calling her a one-trick pony,
etc. I'll eat my words this week. Although it did not fall in the
"rock" category Supernova is looking for, Dilana's rendition of this
song was fantastic. She deserves to move on.
Middle of the Pack:
4) Storm Large - Song: "Anything, Anything" (Dramarama) - Storm
has done nothing but deliver solid performances every single week.
While I can't say she's flying under the radar, she is clearly doing
enough to earn a return week after week.
5) Toby Rand - Song: "White Wedding" (Billy Idol) - Nice
comeback this week for Toby. After falling flat last week, he rebounded
with a great cover of the Billy Idol classic. The guys said it was his
best performance. I don't quite agree, but it was solid enough to keep
him going another week.
6) Dana Andrews - Song: "About a Girl" (Nirvana) - Clearly our
surprise of the week. Dana is capable of carrying a rock tune! While
this did have more of an unplugged feel to it, Dana did a pretty good
job with this Nirvana cover. She definitely did enough to earn another performance, but the question remains -- can she rock?
7) Ryan Star - Song: "I Alone" (Live) - The tune from the
Throwing Copper album was an improvement for Ryan, but he's still
missing that edge necessary to carry Supernova on a full-time basis.
Ryan, do you hear the footsteps? They're closing in...
8) Patrice Pike - Song: "Remedy" (The Black Crowes) - Great
singer with an average week. This rendition of the Black Crowes cover
simply lacked any fire. She's done it in the past, she'll hopefully be
back to prove it next week.
9) Jill Gioia - Song: "Brown Sugar" (The Rolling Stones) - When
Jason Newsted hopped on stage with Phil last week, it helped elevate
his performance. Gilby Clarke helping Jill? Not so much. She was a
complete turn-off on stage both performance-wise and, in my opinion,
vocally. Same boring sound, different week. Luckily for her, there were
at least three singers worse than her...
My Bottom Three:
10) Josh Logan - Song: "No Rain" (Blind Melon) - Logan went
without the soul this week, and the song sounded like it didn't have a
pulse. Logan is obviously a great singer when it comes to adding soul
to his music, but he's just not right for this band.
11) Phil Ritchie - Song: "One Headlight" (The Wallflowers) -
Other than last week, Phil's come to the plate with a laid back style
on performance night. Bobbing head and all. And it's going to cost him
soon. He'll probably have to step it up on elimination night again to
12) Zayra Alvarez - Song: "Call Me" (Blondie) - My goodness, I
have nothing constructive to lend to her performance. Please put this
girl out of our misery and send her on her way. Her song selection is
brutal and she just doesn't seem to get it.
Encore Pick: Lukas
Elimination Pick: Zayra
