Anyone who watched RockStar:Supernova‘s finale last night will agree that the obvious favourite of the band was the young Toronto native, Lukas Rossi.
After his electrifying performances of Cold Play’s “Fix You” and his original broody accoustic compsition “Headspin”, judges and audience alike were showering the black nailed rocker with glowing compliments like the devlish Dave Navarro saying that he’d pay good money to watch Lukas perform, to G n’ R guitarist’s Clarke calling it “fearless” and Tommy Lee’s “Cooler than hell”.
With Paula Abdul’s standing ovation and a frenzied audience, one would wonder why a small (?) but significant peice of news did not hamper the party atmosphere – that Clarke, Lee and Newsted’s band was BANNED from being called Supernova.
This was due to the band’s “original” members/owners, Mitchell, Lawerence and Collins sued CBS, Mark Burnett productions and the famous trio from using the name in every capacity saying that it was still in their posession, meaning that whoever Burnett and co bought it from was a fake.
So the question to ask perhaps is not whether Lukas does wins the coveted lead role, but what’s the band called?
