If it were up to me, I would have booted all three of them.
Yes, that's how bad the Week Two results show for Rockstar: Supernova
was. Three contestants, some who deserved to be in the bottom three,
another who I felt did enough to earn a pass. Nevertheless, the fans of
the world spoke, sending Jill Gioia, Zayra Alvarez and Chris Pierson to the bottom of the pack.
Gioia starts things off trying to earn a return trip, singing a song
that was already done in Week One, "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence.
This song didn't work for Zayra last week, and Lee, Clarke and Newsted
were not high on the track the first time. Compounded by the fact that
her performance was, again, less than Stellar, she wasn't helping
Alvarez was next under the microscope, and she too, made what I thought
was a potential fatal error. No one was impressed with her new age rock
rendition of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me" last night, so her choice?
Sing it again. And again, she did not impress.
Finally, in a surprise this week, Chris Pierson got called on the floor
again over what I thought was a solid rendition of Franz Ferdinand's
"Take Me Out" on Tuesday night. Was he trying to hard? Did he not
measure up to Marty Casey's version in Season One? Whatever the reason,
it was up to him to try and do something original and stay in the game.
His choice? The track Phil Ritchie sang last night, Tonic's "If You
Could Only See."
While Pierson gets an E for effort, to the bandmates, it just was not
enough, and the athlete-turned-aspired rocker was given his walking
Again, I did not think any impressed and would have eliminated all of
them this week, but somehow Gioia and Alvarez did enough to find their
way through to Week 3.
See you next Tuesday for more music and elimination in Week Three of Rockstar: Supernova.
