Hey, Veronica! Good to "see" you again!
Whatever their plans, I just can't help watching this show! I'm a die-hard rocker, and I LOVE it! It'll be interesting to actually hear the music these guys come up with, HUH???
I think the producers must have told the band to lighten up on the "crush it" comments.
It seemed out of character for the supernova guys to give the mark of approval for several songs and performances that were softer and not rockers. In the weeks before, they would have railed on somebody for not rocking out.
And if SuperNova's comments are causing a few people to power vote for Z just to keep her out of the bottom 3 - then that's another reason that there shouldn't be any "outside" voting. What's to stop these power voters from causing 3 of the best singers to end up in the bottom 3?
Last season there were times a good singer landed in bottom 3, because they had a poor performance the night before. I think the fans for this show really do vote responsibly most of the time. And they vote for thier favorites who generally don't suck.
Z is the worst singer and should have been in the bottom 3. Since she wasn't, that suggests to me that the voting isn't exactly where it should be.
Futhermore, what if the message the contestants on the show are getting from this is Hey, act a fool and sing like you have a sinus infection and you'll make it to the finals. I don't think any of us want that, I know I don't.
And while the other Rockstars might feel its a bit unfair she's still around, I think they are also all aware that a freakshow has zero chance of actually winning. She's there as a diversion, a ratings grabber, and nobody else is really banking that emulating her will get them further. Because it won't.
