Hey, gang! Just got back from a very, very surprising Elimination Show.
We started off with the usual recap of the performances, leading in to footage of the Rockers back at the Mansion. Toby, for one, is bummed he didn’t perform better, and Dana turns to Dilana for advice on what she can do to improve. In the footage, Ryan makes some negative comments about Dana’s performance, which Dave follows up on in the Q&A. Ryan, to his credit, doesn’t back-pedal or tone down his remarks – and Dana responds in kind. There's a bit of “he said, she said” going on – and I don’t know how much will make it on the air -- but whatever does should make for some feisty TV viewing.
Encore time – and the first surprise of the show. Not that it was "undeserved". This person was, indeed, one of the best performers the other night. I just think that most people are expecting it to go to someone else. However, as will become painfully clear later, Supernova are going to do things their own way.
Great job on the encore, btw. (The Chosen Rocker, in fact, had to perform the encore twice. There must have been technical difficulties, as there was nothing wrong with the performance either time.)
On to the Bottom 3:
As per usual, Brooke announced the Early Voting Results Bottom 3: Jenny, Ryan, and Dana. BUT, 2 other Rockers hit the Bottom 3 in the course of the voting. And, as happened in Week 1, the Final Bottom 3 did not end up exactly the same as the Early Results one.
The songs performed by the Bottom 3 were:
Vasoline, Stone Temple Pilots
High Road Easy, Sass Jordan
Heart-Shaped Box, Nirvana
Supernova retired to deliberate for about 25 minutes. I’d venture to say that almost everyone – including the Rockers themselves – thought they knew what was going to happen. But when the hatchet finally fell, it chopped a different target.
I'm bettin' you guys are gonna be talkin’ about this one for days.
