|I'm new to watching Rockstar. So, I don't know if winners are really taken very seriously as a permanent member. |
It seems like a low risk publicity stunt for bands and get a disposable singer on the cheap. If they are great and a good fit fine, but the format only limits the selection to a limited starting pool of talent. Ordinarily they could add others for consideration as they go in real life. Ordinarily they would probably foot the cost of advertising and auditioning candidates on their own, but here it's "live TV" and in your face and a gimmick to hopefully gain a built in audience and showcase some of their songs.
However, last night's original Supernova song didn't really impress me as much as the performance and presentation by Dilana. So I hope they come up with some better songs.
Whoever wins will get a contract, but for how long and under what conditions? It would seem if it doesn't work out they'll dump him or her quickly and just find someone else.
Could you imagine if they started with a bunch of Patrices and Zayra's? Some of the marginal singers were probably chosen for tv than the band.
|If the top four are Magni, Storm, Lukas, Dilana(as many expect). Who needs SN and who does SN need? Would it be better to finish second and go solo for most of these folks?|
That's a really good point. I can't imagine wanting to hear a Lukass solo cd. But the others are quality entertainers who's performances could be entertaining, even without Tommy Lee backing them up.
|The thing that peeves me the most about Supernova is that their members used to be in hard rock/metal bands (Gilby from Guns N Roses, Tommy from Motley Crue, and Jason from Metallica), but their new music with Supernova has gone soft! Where's the hard, headbanging stuff these guys used to belt out?|
