WARNING! THERE BE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
I was at the first Live Performance taping of Rock Star: Supernova on Friday night, June 30. If you don’t want to know who sang what or to get some early impressions of the performances, TURN BACK NOW!
For everyone else, come on in and make yourselves comfortable! I think we’ve got a rockin’ season ahead of us!
Before we begin, I just want to make a couple points.
First of all, my critiques of the performers are only my impressions based upon the immediate experience of the taping. As such, they are very fluid, and can change or refine themselves -- especially after seeing the broadcast show. Please don’t take them as gospel – or even as being my final word.
Secondly, although I tried to keep track of the comments made to each contestant, I pretty much gave up after the first few. The guys in Supernova (especially Jason Newsted) are a much more garrulous bunch than INXS, and Butch Walker was sitting there critiquing, too. Most of the comments will never make the air because the show ran hellaciously long and they’re going to have to cut somewhere. If I notice anything significant missing after the episode airs, I’ll be sure to clue you in.
Last, but MOST IMPORTANTLY: Because of the *Spoiler* nature of this thread, please do NOT take any discussion or reports from here into the regular forums. If, for example, you read here that one contestant has a particularly good (or bad) performance, DO NOT POST about it anywhere else on the board. OK?
What happens in this thread, stays in this thread.
With that said, let's get this party started!!!
