Dave Navarro Is Rock Star

Dave_navarro_hostSurvivor would not be Survivor without Jeff ProbstAmerican Idol would not be American Idol without Simon CowellAmazing Race would not be Amazing Race without Phil Keoghan.  There are times when a host or judge for a reality show becomes such an integral part of the show that viewers cannot imagine the show without them.  This season Dave Navarro has taken on that role with Rock Star.

During the first season of Rock Star, the show struggled initially.  Reviews from critics (including us) were not very good.  Rumors ran rampant that the show would be canceled before completing its season.  The INXS judges and host Dave Navarro were bashed over being too nice and offering up boring feedback to the contestants. 

However, CBS stuck with the show and that turned out to be the right move.  The show started to get much better as the season progressed, thanks in large part to some inspired performances by the rock singers.  The shocking transformation of J.D. Fortune from reality TV bad boy to lead singer of INXS also proved to be one of the greatest reality TV stories of the year.   

Dave Navarro steadily improved in his hosting capacity during the first season of Rock Star.  However, it wasn’t until this season that Navarro really started to define the show.  Navarro has slowly gone from an average host to a good host to a great host to a fantastic host.  Just like many of the singers that compete on Rock Star, Navarro has grown more comfortable in his role and gotten better as the show has progressed.

The defining moment for Dave Navarro this season came when Jill Gioia, wearing a white dress and clutching roses, argued with Navarro that her performance of “Violet” was not a Courtney Love impersonation and was her on interpretation.  Navarro fired back, “Well if you get the album that song is on then I believe it’s Courtney Love with a bouquet of roses and a white dress, but never the less.”  In that one moment, Navarro made it clear that if any of the contestants tried to blow smoke in his face then he was going to call their ass out.

Ever since that moment, Dave Navarro has been offering feedback that has been supportive when necessary, critical when called for, and at many times laugh out loud hilarious.  Like all great reality TV judges and hosts, Navarro has developed the ability to put the show on his back and carry it forward and make it a more interesting and entertaining show. 

The other way that Dave Navarro is helping to define the show is through his blog on 6767.com.  While it’s not uncommon for judges and hosts of reality competitions to have blogs, most of them tend to be network sponsored and heavily controlled.  Dave Navarro does his own thing on 6767.com, and it shows that he’s not afraid to speak his mind.  It is Dave Navarro’s real feedback and interaction with the fans that is helping to take Rock Star to the next level.

    I can’t believe they think Dave Navarro makes the show! He is so annoying and his critiques are usually so off base. He is completely unnecessary on the show. He gets on my nerves almost as bad as Brooke Burke. Fire her and let Dave be the host, and don’t let him give his opinion!

    LOVE that. Hope we’re doing it again next summer!!

    Dave Navarro was incorrect when he said Courtney Love was on her own album cover for HOLE wearing a wedding dress and holding flowers but NEVERMIND a point was clearly made when the copy cat girl denied the painfully obvious impersonation attempt of an album cover for her cover tune.

    The only reason that Carmen Electra’s cheating ex-husband is the host of this program is because as the producer, he financially backs a good portion of the program’s expenditures.

    He is inadequately talented, and has no real substantiation to give his totally valueless opinions.

    Catmen Electra’s money is being spent by Navaro, and by his skanky slut of a girlfriend Jenna Jameson, who’s been with less men than Dave’s been.

    I lost all respect for Dave, after he started saying Lukas’ tiresome, unoriginal, boring performances were “Awesome”.

    What the hell is he on?
