Rockstar: Insert New Name Here—Toby was Robbed!

Rock Star Lukas RossiOh man, another disappointing reality show finale for me. I’m sure not everyone feels the same way as me about who was crowned the winner of Rockstar: Supernova since there was much fan support for him. The finale had Magni, Lukas, Toby and Dilana fighting it out for the lead singer job. First cut was Magni (ouch), but my guy Toby was still in the running, so I was happy. Then, the unthinkable—Toby got the axe. What?! I couldn’t even believe that Dilana and Lukas were standing there as the final two contenders. I haven’t been a fan of either of them from the beginning—Dilana is a touch scary with her voice sounding like she’s eaten a bag of glass prior to taking the stage, and Lukas had me questioning “What is he singing? I can’t understand a word.” Toby seemed to me to be a great match with the boys of the band because of his easy-going attitude and his ability to get the crowd hyped up. And he’s cute, so that helps. If nothing else, the exposure will get him his own record deal and we’ll be seeing him again. Besides, who knows how long the Rockstar band will even last.

On to other Rockstar news, you may recall that we reported that there already is a band called Supernova and the fate of the Rockstar band taking on the same name was questionable. Well, a judge ruled that the Rockstar boys will have to choose another name. You may have noticed last night that host Brooke Burke made no mention of the name Supernova when introducing the band with new front-man Lukas Rossi. Let me know what you thought of the outcome. Was it just me, or did the crowd seem a bit bored when Lukas started singing with the band? Don’t hate me Lukas fans—he’s just not my cup o’tea.
