“Are You Ready for a New Sensation?”

I know, I am, especially after the troubling confirmation to the rumors -- that’s right . . .Dave Navarro has left Carmen Electra. And, judging by some pics of a certain RAWK party floating about on the web, he’s given up the golden goose for the crazy cockatoo, Tommy Lee.

How many necklaces can one woman wear, Brooke? 13 Rockers remain - to trash hotel rooms. They’re on the pod.

Greatest band in years, Brooke? Okay. Someone be sure to tell them that. Aww, Dave’s flirting. Hope his girlfriend Tommy doesn’t bug.

Song selections turn ugly.

Toby = Sexy.
Josh = Sexy in an jerky way.
Lukas = Not sexy in a jerky way.
Jill goes all “snap crackle pop” on Patrice over a song they’re arguing over. Bah. I’m revoking her Association of the SuMac Clones membership.

Tommy Lee likes catfights and barroom brawls. He’s feeling the jerky way of the wannabe rockers.

One of tonight’s songs will be performed with a member of Supernova. Whoopee.

Patrice is up first with “Helter Skelter” by the Beatles. I completely dig this. I would actually pay to see that, you know, if it weren’t free on television. I can’t stand the top, though. She could use a splash of color. But, I’m not here to rag on their clothing. That’s Dave’s job. Dave thought it was cute, but dope. The people it actually matters to - the Mad Hatters - liked it as it was.

Brooke pimps the HB, and they’re so amazing.

Josh Logan -- Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.” -- I love Josh. I really, really, do. So, naturally I dug this. But, I didn’t like the “look at me, I’m a rock star!” groans. I heard enough of those in Tommy Lee’s video. His performance is very low-key and, like Patrice, I’d pay to see this. Dave liked it, too, but wants him to bring something heavy and ugly. Faux-Depp wonders if he’s right to represent them. Dave tells him to put that intensity in his next performance.

Storm Large - “Just What I needed” by The Cars. She stripped down the theatre, but that poor microphone stand is going to get pregnant if she keeps that up! It wasn’t her strongest performance to date, vocally, but I’m more than convinced she can bring it when she latches on to the right material. Can’t argue with her stage presence. Dave was impressed … “night and day.“ Jason thinks she’s professional. Tommy, “I’d like to see more of you” “Six letters: Google.” NICE! Oh, she’s battling Brooke for this year’s “I swear I’m not a lesbian, but I love her!” title.

Lukas - “Let’s Spend the Night Together” by the Stones. THREE WEEKS IN A ROW someone has threatened my Stones. Argh. And, now it’s LUKASS? God, he’s even mimicking Mick Jag--erm, “he-who-shall-not-be-named.” Amazing. Jill impersonates Courtney Love and it’s the end of the world, he impersonates a rock icon and they love it. Go figure. Dave likes his arrogance…I can’t stand it. Raised the bar, Tommy? Please. Jill’s probably gnawing on a baby backstage.

“All Right Now” by Free comes from Jill. Is it just me, or does it sound like “Footloose” musically? It was just OK for me. She seems to have two tones to her voice: mediocre-sing and great-scream. Unfortunately, the first isn’t going to win her a singing competition, and the second isn’t going to win her over a fan in me. I don’t think she should go home yet, but … it was just OK for me. The boys of SN ate it up. Gilby comments on her over singing….he can imagine them behind her. I told you -- there’s a sequel coming, folks.

Ryan Star - “Fortunate Son” by CCR - another fave of mine! He looks like Dave Matthews during his sexy facial-hair stage. Oh, he sung, didn’t he? It didn’t suck. Like Jill before him, it was just OK for me. It was more RAWK than usual, but … eh. Tommy thinks he doesn’t move enough. Gilby thinks he’s uncomfortable. He smiles, and wow is he purty!

“Jefferson Airplane” - “White Rabbit” - Jason’s going to play! CRUSH IT! Like a Mtn. Dew can! Phil Ritchie. Don’t kill him with your head-banging, Jason! This isn’t CSI! Yeah, this guy’s putting me to sleep, still. What is it about him? I can’t even understand anything he’s saying/screaming. And, it’s over? Dave likes his intensity? He brought it? Tommy loved it? Mmmk. If you say so. You’re the professionals.

Dana Andrews - “It’s My Life” by Bon Jovi. Aww, she curled her hair. She’s so RAWK!! Rut-roh! I actually liked it! I didn’t like the original, but I liked this one! What’s happening to me. Hanson? Is that you? God, it’s the sweet sounds of misspent youth calling me home! She can sing, very well, in fact. Tommy think she’s hot, but felt like he was watching Celine Dion. Poor thing! Celine? Don’t be cruel! She says, “I’ll show you, Gilby Clark,” and…I’ve been making that threat for months, and it hasn’t scared him into sleeping with me, yet, either.

The news says there’s a PMS candy bar? Yes please!

Toby Rand - “Runaway Train” - Soul Asylum. THIS is how you do a BB fave! Sure, it’s not the original, but it’s not supposed to be (read that, Lukass). Now, it’s not “Supernova” by any means, but, then again, neither is Supernova. “Rock the crap out of it?” Aww. Tommy wants him to scare him.

Magni - “Plush” - STP. “Iceland Magni.” “Ice Man.” Aww. He’ll always be Chris Daughtry to me. Oh, wait…Like last week, it’s a major improvement from week one. I dug this. I really, really did. I’ve almost forgiven him for the RS thing two weeks ago. Gilby thought he killed it. I agree! God help me!

“Everybody Hurts” REM - Zayra. Holy hell. I … *gulp* … liked this! How’d she manage that? Outfit was crap, though. Dave thought she should have gone home. As did Gilby. As did Butterfly Bandit. But, she redeemed herself! Will it be enough to save her?

Jenny Galt - “Drive” by Incubus. She plays the acoustic guitar and … what is with the outfits tonight? She still puts me in the mindset of Liz Phair. I think she might be visiting the B3. The boys want her to take some more risks.

Dilana - “Zombie” by the Cranberries. Brooke says “she grew up poor in Africa” .. and I thought she said, “She made porn in Africa…” I’m so far gone by now. This song fits her like a glove. I don’t see a way around them giving her the encore again. She gives props to the HB. Tommy wants to do something to her that got bleeped out. Wonderful. She must have a TLee voodoo doll, too.

Early voting results: Jenny, Dana, Ryan
My B3: Jenny, Lukas, Jill. I would say Zayra, but she really impressed me this week.

Prediction to go? Dana. ‘Cause, they’ll eat her alive. Literally.

I disagree with most of this, but that's just my opinion laughing.gif Jill does have a good voice though, I wouldn't call it mediocre.

That's fine. It's not like - the gospel or anything!

And, I think with training she could have a real power voice, but right now, all I'm getting is a notch between "eh" and "screamy."

Zayra suprised me greatly tonight as well; she gave me chills.

And like you said, Dilana *should* get the encore. But I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it to Zayra.

I enjoy reading your recaps... I love fresh opinions.

Awww, thanks you guys. I'm glad people like it.

And, when we see a little baby bump on that mic stand in the next couple of months, we'll know who the father is at least...

I usually post about 40 minutes after the show has aired on the East Coast, because it takes me that long to grab a snack, gather my notes and type them up. But, last night I was actually at my computer during the show, so, I got it done a little early.

See ya next week! =)
