I'm warming up to this season considerably, btw. Supernova has pleased me immensely in the last few vote-off decisions. (Especially getting rid of Phil. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. My fast-forward button thanks you too.) Agreed with tonight's decision, as well. Good bye, Cul-de-Sac Girl, now you'll have plenty of spa time. Okay, maybe that's a bit mean, but the "cut practice for the spa" really irks me. She's definitely incredibly talented, but I'm glad to be spared her attempt to mold herself into the "Rawk Chick" mold from here on in-- it just wasn't credible, IMO, the harder she tried the more Hot Topic she looked. I think someone [mod edit] called it perfectly by saying that she's young and she doesn't seem to have figured out what her own "singing identity" is yet, that she could just as easily mold herself into "pop chick" for AI or "country chick" for the Nashville show. She's got a great voice, so I wish her success in finding whatever niche really suits her. (I wish there were a time machine so I could swap Dana and my beloved Marty. She'd probably have been a much better fit for INXS than for Supernova, and well, we know Marty was too hard-rock for INXS.)
I was seriously rooting for Jill to go coming into this ep. Her attitude is annoying and I'm sick of her stripper-chick routine. And she thoroughly butchered one of my favorite songs last night, as well. But I loved her "Alone" tonight-- and I hate that song. I also thoroughly, passionately hate Evanescence, and she did an absolutely beautiful job with "Bring Me to Life" last time she was in the bottom 3. If she can stop grinding and screaming and just *sing*, I think she'll last a lot longer and get a lot less snippy comments, because she's really, really good.
Oh-- incredibly thankful to Dave Navarro for wondering why Lucas wasn't in the bottom 3. I can't stand Pepe Le Pew, I want him gone. NOW. Please. You got rid of Phil, can we go 2 for 2? I'll even say nice things about hair metal if you lose this guy!
[mod edit] Personally, I'm kinda glad she's still around. She's horrid, but she's a really entertaining, special, intergalactic brand of bad. And watching the looks on Supernova's faces as they watch her cracks me up. I'll take hilariously-funny-bad over really-pretentious-bad any day.
