Rock Star Supernova Rocked By Voting Controversy, Fans Demand Ryan Star’s Return

August 30, 2006 11:40 PM by Joe Blackmon

Audience_boosAmerican Idol had its Chris Daughtry, now Rock Star Supernova has its Ryan Star.  Ryan Star’s elimination is proving to be so controversial that his fans are turning to the Internet in massive numbers to express their outrage and demand a do over.  Just like with Chris Daughtry, there is a voting controversy.  Several Reality TV Magazine readers have commented about a problem with the online voting system at Rockstar.MSN.com.   

The official Rock Star Supernova message board is also filled with complaints from fans claiming that the online voting system was down for an hour or more after the performance show ended.  Some fans claim that the voting was not working for any of the contestants, while other fans claim that they only received error messages when attempting to vote for Ryan Star.  When American Idol showed the wrong phone numbers for some contestants, Fox had the first ever American Idol re-vote.  Because the online voting malfunction could have affected the outcome of Rock Star Supernova, many fans are now demanding a re-vote for Rock Star.

The voting problems were apparently so widespread that Dave Navarro mentioned the problems on his blog.  Before the results show even aired, Dave Navarro posted “I have nothing to do with MSN!!! Don’t know what to tell ya! I’ll know more when I get to work tomorrow about the voting fiasco.”  In a follow-up post, Dave Navarro addressed the controversy for a second time writing “As for the voting issue. This is MY site. It is not an offshoot of MSN. You got a problem with voting? Take it there. Write to them. I host this, pay for it and update it myself. As I said before…I don’t know what the problem is.”

Another complaint circulating among fans has nothing to do with the voting malfunctions but alleges the judges made an unfair decision just because they wanted to look politically correct.  Ryan Star was up against the only two females remaining on the show.  Even though Gilby Clarke said Dilana was lost in the middle of her song and criticized Storm Large for not showing any growth in her performances, neither Dilana nor Storm was eliminated. 

Even though Gilby Clarke praised Ryan Star for getting a great audience reception and Tommy Lee raved about how far Ryan had come in the competition, Ryan got the hatchet anyway.  Based on the judges feedback, Ryan Star’s elimination really didn’t make any sense for many fans other than that Supernova didn’t want to look sexist by eliminating one of the only two women left in the competition. 

Regardless of if a voting malfunction or just poor decisionmaking by Supernova led to Ryan Star’s demise, Ryan’s fans are united in demanding his return to the show.  Will CBS give Ryan Star another shot and bring him back?  A technical malfunction during a recent head of household competition on the CBS reality show Big Brother resulted in a do over for the competition, so it is not out of question that a voting malfunction might result in a Rock Star do over.

    I had no problems with the voting system last night,(PDT). Jason made a comment last night that just might have been the reason why Ryan was voted off…other than the fact that he sceamed Baba O’reilly rather than sing it, and everyone went hiss boo. jason felt that Ryan was more comfortable behind the piano, and that was obviously a direction SN didn’t want to go. Not a Ryan fan, and won’t miss him.

    I disagree with the band being labelled sexist with the elimination of Storm or Dilanna. If anything, KEEPING Storm around for eye-candy seems to be the sexist move, doesn’t it? Ryan’s getting better and better while Storm has been flatlining.

    Doesn’t matter. It’s blatantly down to either Dilanna or Lukas. They aren’t the best performers of the bunch but perhaps the best suited for the 2 dimensional sound of Supernova. With that said, GO TOBY! I thought for sure it would have been Storm or Magni gone next.

  3. Michael- NYC Says:

    Yes, I had voting problems last night, but I was voting for Lukas. Anyway, as the band said, Ryan is not a fit for this band. It doesn’t matter how much the fans like him. I like him, think he is talented, but do not agree that he should front Supernova.

    I am surprised at all of you who were shocked to see Ryan go. Ryan is talented, a great singer and musician. This is a competition to be the frontman of Supernova. You need to ask yourselves, “Does Ryan really fit in with this band?” The answer is clear— No!

    Yes, he will be successful as a solo artist and he deserves to be. He was great to watch when he performed behind the piano and on his original song. It did rock! However, he did look like he was forcing himself to be something he isn’t and that is a wild stage performer. He looked uncomfortable, goofy, unnatural and silly. He was fighting to catch the mic as it swung all over the place when he threw it up in the air. I think sometimes the truth hurts and they may not have wanted to dig into him about this on national tv. It is embarrrassing and was emabarrassing to watch.

    Ryan just doesn’t belong in this band. Magni probably should have gone home tonight and definitely would have been in the bottom three if it wasn’t for a national campaign in Iceland for the entire country to vote for him. See below link:

    http://www.icelandreview.com/icelandreview/daily_news/?cat_id=40764&ew_0_a_id=228240

    Anyway, even if Iceland keeps it up, the band will still decide who it wants to be its frontman— and it looks like the person who they always liked from the beginning…LUKAS!

    If Lukas DOES win that’ll be two-fer-two when it comes to Rock Star and Canadian singers!

    Canada does have some talented singers and performers. Bare in mind the Canadian Government has apologized for Bryan Adams on several occassions. And hopefully Celine Dion, too. If not, I just did.

    Well I’m an old rocker growing up with Tommy Lee and the boys and there music. There is only one person who can front Supernova and thats Dilana, Put Lukus up there,it would look like a kid with 3 old men behind him. Dilana is the only 1 that has the mature look , powerful voice like Tina Turner and a stage show full of colour and excitment.

  6. Uday Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 4:33 am

    I am a big fan of TOBY RAND and I strongly feel he sould front the band.

  7. marc Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 4:47 am

    With the show about to air in Australia I am more shocked that Dilana is in the bottom three. She is amazing! She has the maturity and the honesty that would truly enhance Supernova. Lukas is a brat who should go back to the likes of Hooters and flip chiken wings or the like.

    It is Dilana all the way. What a woman.

  8. Bwana Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 5:57 am

    SuperNova knows who they want. That being the case, it does not matter the order they eliminate the others. So, they chose to keep Storm (Dilana may be the pick) in order to keep male viewers watching.

    BTW, given that this is not intended to be an AI type thing, but supposedly auditioning seasoned singers, it seems silly to keep bitching at Storm for not “growing”. She has been doing this a while, she has a style. They are not offering her technical suggestions, just creative ones hints. When your first performance is a “9″ out of 10, it is hard to move up much farther…

  9. Karen Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 6:16 am

    In my opinion, SN got rid of Ryan while they had the chance. They know Storm will continue to be in the bottom 3 so they can eliminate her at ANY point. They must already know who they want as the final 3 (I believe it’s Toby, Lukas and Dilana) and will elimate the others when they have the chance. If Iceland keeps voting like crazy they will wind up with another “Hawaii” with Jasmine Trias making it way further than she should have in American Idol. That’s why if Magni and Storm are in the bottom next week, I wouldn’t be surprised if Magni gets the boot …. They did not want a situation where Magni and Ryan made it to the finals, which could have happened if Ryan’s fans started voting like Magni’s. That’s why I won’t be surprised if Magni goes before Storm just because she is “safe” to make it into the bottom EVERY week and it keep their choices safe.

    Ok so what if the voting lines had a problem Ryan wasn’t going to win because supernova eliminated him because they didn’t think he would be a fit for their band in the first place. So weather he made it to the final 3 or no he wasnt going to win. I am shocked with Dilana being in the bottom three, but hey she did act a bit cocky for a couple shows. She is a good singer that needs to start caring about others and not being so self centered. Storm, I thought she had to go this week but I guess supernova did want to have two girls rather than one to look correct. Lukas Toby and Magni were all really good and so theyu deserved to be the top three.

  11. Mark Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 8:19 am

    What a stink about nothing.

    This isn’t about ranking the contestants. It’s about picking the right choice for Supernova, not only one the fans like, but the band has to put up, creatively and personally, with the winner at least through the first tour. For all we know, the band could have said in that huddle “you know, we don’t want any of these three, so let’s keep the chicks. That’s the best option from a band publicity ratings standpoint for next week”. Or they could have said — “you know, we aren’t going to pick either Storm or Ryan (or Dilana or Ryan). Storm and Dilana seem to support each other, so let’s keep one around for the other one”.

    Whether or not Ryan was in the voters bottom three or not really doesn’t matter at this point. The only possible way it could have mattered is if each of the three members of Supernova have a different favorite, and all the three favorites were in the bottom three. I don’t think Storm is anyone’s favorite at this point of those three, and if Ryan was anyone but Dave Navarro’s favorite, he wouldn’t have been eliminated.

  12. Mark Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 8:36 am

    someone wrote “They did not want a situation where Magni and Ryan made it to the finals, which could have happened if Ryan’s fans started voting like Magni’s.”

    They could have avoided that easily enough anyhow. The last voting is next week. With five left, they will have to pick one of three to eliminate from those nominated by the voters.

    From there, it is all the band’s choice on the order. In the final week, there will be four left. The band will let the four perform two songs each on Tuesday, then immediately eliminate one (or hold the suspense and eliminate one at the very beginning of the two hour finale on Wednesday 9/13). No fan voting. First hour of the finale, the remaining three will perform two songs each, then they will eliminate one. The final two will then perform two or three songs each, including performing at least one with the band. There will be an on-air interview segment in that hour too. With about 10 minutes left, the band will make their choice and then perform a song with the winner to close the show.

    That’s how it worked last year anyhow. They could twist it of course. But if they follow it close, the band could easily manipulate it at this point to put anyone they wanted in the final two, and avoid putting anyone they didn’t want there as well. And they always could, though if someone made it to the finals after eight straight weeks in the bottom three, it would stretch any credibility with actually caring what the fans think.

    Even though I am a Ryan Star fan, I agree w/ the people who say supernova is the one making the decision but the only question troubling my mind is do storm sound like a rocker? Personay I think she doesn’t have the voice of a rocker and only have a pretty face. For me the only reason they saved her is because they like her physical looks not her voice. . . Ryan Star will be just fine without supernova, besides his composition rocks harder than the compostion of supernova. One last thing, Tommy Lee you perverted old guy, you must stop with your old attidute man.

    I tried voting for Ryan many times on Wednesday and kept getting an error and I’m very upset he was in the bottom three..why isn’t Lucas? I think that he’s completely untalented and is NOT a good fit for Supernova. The only person that can take this band far is Tobey..he’s the only one that has the talent and personality to fit well with the band.
    Deliana has an excellent voice but doesn’t connect well with the audience and we’ve seen in the past weeks that she doesn’t get along well with others. If Supernova picks her,they won’t last.
    Ryan was the best fit and they BLEW it!!

  16. Kerry Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 9:28 am

    Storm is by far the best singer, although I don’t think she is probably right for the band…hers was the best out of three very crappy perfomances last night. Dilana was awful, and Ryan was only slightly better. They both just screamed the whole time, and Dilana forgot half of her song. I am rooting for Toby at this point, if Dilana wins I will never buy anything Supernova – period.

  17. Mari Pereira - BRAZIL Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 9:31 am

    I realy think Ryan is better of without them… He really doesn´t fit with Supernova´s Style!

    I love him, and i voted by text message, don´t know about the site voting… But i think that Ryan will be great solo, as he is now, and Michael from NYC (some comments above) is right… why do we get so sad? Ryan will still be rockin´ so much, you´ll see!

  18. Fabi Says:

    I had problems voting as well…. everybody had problems voting, so Ryan’s elimination is not because of this problem….

  19. Josh Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 10:13 am

    In the end it is definitely Supernova’s (sic: Tommy Lee’s) choice who will be frontman… but the whole reason to have the vote-off show in the first place (other than more airtime for Tommy) is to see who the public responds to the best. You would think that would have SOME influence on Supernova’s decision — same with INXS last summer, in my humble opinion.

    To those that think Dilana is top pick, listen to that voice of hers and THINK about it. Do you really think those vocal chords are going to make it a few more years?

    Anyone notice on Tuesday’s show how Tommy Lee just pulled his hat over his eyes and hardly said anything? I was cracking up… the guy was completely tanked.

    August 31st, 2006 at 10:35 am

    Dilana’s performance was horrid. That song was so inappropriate. Not rocking at all. I figured she’d get a slap on the wrist and saved (as they said, she’d earned a lot of credit with them). I really like her, but don’t think she’s right for the band.

    Ryan… it was his time to go. I’ve never liked him. He tried to turn himself into what he thought they wanted, but it was too contrived. From jumping off the drum riser to climbing on top of speakers to whatever else he was doing it wasn’t spontaneous. It’s as if he were counting in his head, “Ok now wait five seconds then turn and jump!” He was a phony and he just screamed that song last night. Ugh.

    Storm is the next to go. She’s was wowing people at the beginning but like a soon-to-be ex-girlfriend, her appeal has waned.

    A lot of you have made comments about How Ryans fans shouldn’t be making such a big deal about the voting because Ryan wasn’t right for SN and would have gone home anyway. We know that. Most of us didn’t REALLY want him to win anyways because he’s so amazing as a solo artist, but we voted because thats what he wanted. A lot of us just wanted him to stay longer so we could keep watching him every week and now we’re sad because we can’t. Maybe he wasn’t right for SN but he was by no means the least talented of the group, and we feel cheated. Personally, I wanted to see him there for the finale, see more performances, but then have somebody else actually win it. Anyone else. I don’t care who wins because I think SN sucks.

    By the way marie, I do agree that Ryan was trying to conform somewhat to what supernova wanted, but that doesn’t make him fake or contrived. He’s a great artist and he just wants to make great music. Just because its not what he did before the show doesn’t mean it wasn’t genuine. Artists are always changing and experimenting and trying new things.

    Your article says there was no reason for Ryan to be eliminated other than it was politically correct? Give me a break. How about the fact that it was Ryan’s third trip to the bottom three, whereas neither Storm nor Dilana had ever been in the B3 until last night. Really, that’s enough reason right there. That, and he’s emo and completely wrong for Supernova.

    I voted for Toby and only got through twice in about 25 attempts … just got error messages … so it’s not like Ryan is the only one who had voting “issues.” Ryan was definitely not right for SN. I LOVED Mig last season but knew he was not “right” for INXS either. This is not a popularity contest for a solo career, it is supposed to be who is the best fit for the band. Toby has shown he can sing in front of those 3 as well as a crowd as have Dilana and Lukas. Those 3 are the only ones at this point who have a chance and WHO FIT. Magni just doesn’t seem to have the chemistry and neither does Storm (even though I like both of them). Ryan “grew” as a performer but always looked uncomfortable doing these types of songs. He will do well with another band or on his own, as will ALL of the eliminated contestants. Not winning this gig will be the best thing that ever happens to them!

  25. Lucas! Incredible Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 11:58 am

    Lucas is by far the best performer and singer but he needs to be in band with younger guys and more experimental. Sorry Supernova you have to admit it when you are old your old

  26. mikey Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 12:02 pm

    Oh, please. Ryan’s “act” was getting old anyway. Remember how everybody hated Zayra and her outlandish “performances”? Hello, that’s Ryan, too.

    Magni is by far the best “fit” for the band. He sings rock. Not glam rock (Lukas), not pop rock (Toby), not stripper rock (Storm), not angsty chick rock (Dilana), and certainly not whiney emo rock (Ryan). Don’t get me wrong – those forms of rock are good, too. But when it comes down to Metallica, Motley Crue, Guns n Roses rock rock, Magni is the man.

  27. ZK Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 12:13 pm

    As the spoiler from Janet Charlton has come out, we now know that SN has wanted to pick Lukas from the get-go. We also know that Lukas fronted an opening act for Jason’s last band. Combine that with the fact that Tommy was on Kimmel, dissing on Dilana, (unrelated to the recent strife)
    and that Lukas is the only one left that hasn’t been in the bottom 3, and voila – this show is unbelievably contrived.

    While the exec producers scramble to make excuses and play dumb, I’m not buying it. Of course, they still want you to think your favorite stands a chance.

    Sorry folks, but I’m just not buying what they’re trying to sell me on.

    It’s perfectly obvious to me, that the fact that Magni, Toby and Dilana have EVER been in the bottom 3 speaks volumes;

    A) Either the voting public is too stupid to be trusted or
    B) Votes are being made to look a certain way.

    While he’s good, Lukas isn’t even close to being in the same league as Magni, Toby and Dilana.

    When I think about last year, they said the same thing – no decision had been made. We later learned that when Tim met JD for the first time, he said ‘there’s our next lead singer’, and other tidbits that have since come out.

    While I will continue to watch, only for the super performances those 3 continue to come up with, I’m done with voting.

  28. TGA Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 2:10 pm

    Give me a break ZK! First off, there seems to be no connection between Lukas and Gilby. Yes, Tommy likes Lukas and Jason seems too. But, I don’t believe Gilby is on board. Dilana has shown her true colors over the past few weeks and really sucked last night. I like Magni but please, he is not the right person for the job. Something is missing with him. Storm, sounds awful when she tries to scream in her deep voice. Very uncomfortable and not a good fit. Very nice to look at though. It really comes down to Toby and Lukas. I like both of them. I think Lukas would fit better with the band but would not mind Toby. But, if we are really being honest, have you liked any of the songs they have played so far. Two of the three have really sucked no matter who is signing them That is my biggest concern. Anyways, Rock on Lukas and good luck.

  31. ZK Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 3:42 pm

    I stand by my comments….

    If Jason had a hand in getting Lukas on the show because he once opened for him, I think it highly suspicious.
    I don’t know Janet Charlton’s sources, but you don’t remain a Hollywood insider for THAT long without SOME credibility.

    Again, I stand by my comments that Magni, Dilana and Toby are the best of the best on that show.

    To Storm’s credit, she’s always been a risk-taker and she should be commended for it, not chided. (same with Dilana) I’d like to see Ryan or Lukas try to sing “Time after Time” or “I will Survive”!!!!

    At the end of the day, aside from the tidbits we now know, I just think these guys want a fellow with them on tour, not a female. Even a superstar female.

    And again I say, this same thing happened last year, and after the show, we started to hear various comments on how they loved JD from the audition.

    When the winner is crowned, we shall see who was right…. At least I won’t be surprised.

    Actually, the trouble wasn’t specific to Ryan. I tried and tried unsucessfully to vote for Magni and received this message:

    In truth “Rockstar Supernova” is just great T.V.! Of coarse it is being very carefully guided along by some writting and producing. I’m sure that they have already gone over each way that they would respond to either negative or positive revues and will continue to choose and use the best $$$ plan. As consumers we are all being told and directed as to what we need and we follow suit. Love it or hate it, it’s just the way our consumer $$$ are spent. If Supernova have already picked who they are interested in to front them that’s how the public will be influenced. From all aspects of this being a comercial product, Lukas, is in my opinion is more suited for the job. The comittment is only one album and tour. Based on what I’ve heard of the original SN material ,I would say They’re making money off the T.V. show, not a long 20 yr. career. But if the fans love why stop there. As talented and driven as all these remaining singers are, can you imagine for a moment how silly they would all look if someone like Axl Rose in his prime or Anthony keedis showed up for this gig. SN wanted HUGE but let’s face guys like that are not as user friendly. I love the show and if for nothing else am enjoying some great live performances with amazing energy. Who’s for next season?

  35. Troy from The GOAT Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 5:29 pm

    Yes… Ryan ‘forced’ his performances. Whether that’s wrong or right, who cares. Truth is, he isn’t the only one. HAVE YOU SEEN LUKAS TRY TO DANCE? That’s not natural. HAVE YOU SEEN DILANNA TRY TO DANCE? She looks like she’s trying to remember choreography from band rehearsals or something.

    NO WONDER SHE MESSED UP THE SONG WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

    Again, contrived or not… the trick is to make it LOOK natural. The person on the show who seems to be the king of that is TOBY. Not saying he’s going to win but Toby IS the most genuine person on and off the stage.

I ain’t gonna spend a dime on his crappy music.

    I too experienced voting problems last night, but, like many others, I was not voting for Ryan; I was voting for Lukas. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to cast as many votes his way as I would have liked, but it worked out okay in the end. Someone had to go; Magni was not in the bottom three, and Ryan was the only one in the final bottom three who had been there before.

  39. Julie Says:

    Lukas needs to take enunciation lessons or something. I didn’t catch one word of whatever that was he sang with supernova. That was just God awful. If he ends up fronting that band, I think they’re doomed. Then again, they may be doomed anyway. Tommy Lee grows more annoying by the minute. Why can’t I stop watching this show???

  40. ZK's OK Says:
    August 31st, 2006 at 11:41 pm

    You’re right about one thing ZK. We have seen this before. Dilana had turned in so many stellar performances that the Producers had to edit the show to alter expectations and tarnish her crown as front runner.

    We saw it last year with Jordis Unga, who also repeatedly turned in top grade performances, only to be shown undergoing a slow self-destructive burn and crash after being unable to hit an especially difficult note.

    The show is edited to lead the audience to a desired outcome. If the spoilers are true, they may lead me toward their eventual outcome, but I’ll be kicking and screaming all the way!

    Lukas sucks! He’s half plastic and all parody.

    Magni rules! I want to lick his bald head… among other things. LOL

    Thanks!

    I say this as someone who grew up in and still lives in Toronto. Lukas is a dime-a-dozen poseur around here. Trying to be a JD-wanna-be-rocker. Problem is, he hasn’t got the talent or the vulnerability to back it up.

    Ryan said something a few days ago in his blog on rockstar.msn.com about Dilana showing her “true colors.” Well, I guess we just got to see his. He’s the first eliminated rocker to not be mature and gracious about being given a chance. I’m glad he’s gone! It made me uncomfortable watching him perform.

    Supernova does not need Billy Joel (Ryan) fronting their band. I’m glad he’s gone.

    Whoever said it was Ryan’s third trip to the bottom 3 is incorrect. It was only his 2nd. The other came after much praise was lavished on him (a week after his first encore, in fact). Get your facts straight.

    That said, I like Ryan, but he’s not right for Supernova. I feel bad that his dreams were crushed, but selfishly, I am happy about it. Supernova is garbage. Ryan Star is not. If you fans really want to support him, buy his CD from ryanstar.tv. Otherwise, quit your yackin’!

    You gotta be kidding with this article. Ryan’s a piano bar emo guy who was very lucky to get this exposure and has been a total butthead about it. His time during the mansion was spent in “confessionals” tattling on his roommates and making sure everybody knew how bad they were. He’s completely delusional if he thinks he was anywhere near a fit for a rock band. I might have enjoyed his performances more if he were not thinking HOW! INCREDIBLY! TALENTED! RYAN! STAR! IS! the whole time he was “performing.” Calculated, contrived “spontaniety” didn’t do it for me, the band, or most of the viewing public. (Sorry, Ryan fans.. for most people he was annoying and boring.) Now his attempts to powervote himself back on to the show are beyond pathetic. (check out his new myspace site) His dismissal was controversial only in his own mind. I hope he keeps talking, because he just keeps showing his “true colors” (his self righteous, carefully orchestrated dis on Dilana in a confessional.) What a jerk he is.

    Did you have a ROCK Star Supernova Voting Malfunction?

    Around the net, many are complaining about a voting problem with MSN and Voting for Ryan Star.  Ryan Star was eliminated last week, but the fervor over his ousting is int he same venue as the American Idol Voting backlash of Chris Daughtry.
    Did you ha…

    HEY PIPS! ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA IS BRINGING BACK ONE ELIMINATED ROCKER TO DO AN ENCORE FOR THE FINALE. Guess who among the eliminated had TWO ENCORES AND ONE ENCORE-WORTHY ORIGINAL SONG?

    NO ONE ELSE BUT RYAN “THE DARK HORSE” STAR had three encore-worthy performances among the previously 10 eliminated rockers!!! And gueass who among those ten had “suck big time” performances? The record shows… Care to review the past episodes?
    I honestly believe that Ryan had earned enough credit for the finale encore. If you disagree,DEFEND YOUR OTHER OPTION.RYAN STAR IS VERY TALENTED. He is actually more talented than the other 9 booted rockers. SO LET’S MAKE THE FINALE A BIT INTERESTING. LET’S BRING BACK RYAN STAR AND WATCH A TALENTED MUSICIAN/SINGER/ROCKER even for the last time on worldwide TV.

    Ryan is the total package. Singer, songwriter, musician. He is much to good to front Supernova. I would love to see him come back and do an encore on the finale. However, I have just listened to some of the songs on the album he is releasing, and it rocks. I am purchasing this CD, and not Supernova’s, regardless of who fronts the band.

    I believe that Rockstar Supernova is a phoney rock rendition of Idol. They know who they want from the beginning, and all the crap in between is just for ratings and to put money in the pockets of all involved in Supernova, as well as the 3 washed up musicians. Gilby Clarke was never anyone to begin with, and Tommy Lee is total trash looking for more attention. Jason Newsted’s failed attempt at being intelligent is silly. Jason if you want to be taken serious get rid of the time warp gloves. Get over yourselves. You are no one and your songs are horrible. Ryan Starr was a good songwriter, yet not right for the band. Toby is good, but too young and will do anything to suck the asses of Supernova. Lukas is a Manic-depressive druggie attempting to sing, the sad part is the people that vote for him actually think he is good? Listen to him, he forgets his lines, he attempts to ad lib. He is a poser. His voice is horrible. Dilana is the best candidate, she has a decent voice, is trashy like the band, and so what if she cannot write, neither can Supernova. What do you ever remember by Gilby Clark, except for the fact he was briefly in Guns and Roses. Tommy Lee is nothing but bad press and an abuser. They will never survive in this day and age. Their music is dated and poorly written.

    Does it really matter who wins? Has anyone actually listened to the songs that Supernova has written & played each week? They’re garbage. That said, I hope Lucas wins with his mumbling, incoherent singing style. Then if any of this Supernova crap makes it on to the radio, at least I won’t be able to hear the cheesey lyrics.

    with the last show Sept. 13 and the band selecting Lukas I know now for a fact I will NOT be listening to any of thier music I agree with the comment “Lucas wins with his mumbling, incoherent singing style.” I might of considered a now and then listening expierence with the band but with Lukas incoherent mumbling NO WAY Supernova YOU SUCK……… You should of went with the one who all favored………

    Dilana was the favorite from the beginning, and I believe she got the best deal of the two. She gets to play her own music, and exposure on tour with a band that has less talent. You cannot beat that.

    Have you seen where Ryan is lately? In case not…he’s hanging out on the charts, just like he promised! He’s also been hanging out all over the US and Canada performing his magical talent for all his fans that totally adore him and appreciate his God given talent.

    The reason why he tried so hard to get back on RSSN for fan favorite encore is because of how motivated and passionate he is as an artist. He has been a dedicated musician since high school and finally got this huge break..and wanted as many people as possible to know who he is..wouldn’t you do the same??

    You should see him live, he is truely talented…writes and composes all his own stuff…plays several instruments..and he is as REAL as it gets. He is humble and appreciative. He personally meets & greets ANY fan that wants to meet and chat with him after EVERY SINGLE show that he does. Ryan Star is passionate about his music AND his fans…many of whom have become totally smitten over him because of how awesome and REAL he is…just check him out now..i swear you won’t be disappointed :)
