TV Land

RS: Supernova

Final four are Dilana, Toby, Magni & Lukas.

Storm was ousted last week after repeated being in the bottom 3. I guess Supernova has to listen to the fans. She gave a heart-wrenching performance of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" which brought even Jason Newsted (Bass Guitarist) to tears; but that was not enough to save her.

Toby's original composition, "Throw It Away" won him the encore (and a brand new Honda!) which he dedicated to fellow Aussie, Crocodile Hunter, the late Steve Irwin. His rousing & energetic performance had everyone singing along. A potential chart-topper, it had excellent guitar riffs, brilliantly performed by the House Band's Rafael Moreira.

My faves to win? Either Dilana or Toby. Dilana has had a rough couple of weeks, & her popularity has dropped after her foot-in-mouth debacle with the media. She still gives impressive performances, although her weakness in songwriting may proof to be detrimental. Toby has the looks, talent & charisma to capture fans for Supernova, especially those of the female persuasion! And in an industry driven by popularity & moolah (more fans=more albums sold=more$$$!), this could give him the edge over Dilana.


I loved the most recent episode screened this week! Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier), low on funds after committing himself to buying a multimillion dollar house, decides to do an ad for a Red Bull-like product targeted at the Chinese market. Bai Ling guested as the stunt co-ordinator, to teach him martial arts moves for the ad. She ended up teaching him not only kungfu moves, but also techniques totally unrelated to martial arts (ahem!). The episode ended with the final product - the ad itself, dubbed in Mandarin. Absolutely Brilliant!

I heard that someone from Metallica(one of the previous members) died, probably why Jason cried. And yea, Storm's version of WYWH was really heartwrenching. I started crying, really. But her original was awesome
