Toby on Rockstar

Toby got more talented when he darkened his hair. Does that make me prejudiced? Seriously, I’ve never been a big fan of his, in spite of recognizing he has talent. Kind of like Patrice. Something was missing even if I couldn’t put my finger on it.

But when he darkened his hair for tonight’s show, picture above is pre-darkened, I decided what had been missing was edge. His too blonde hair made him look too surfer boy pretty to front a heavy metal band in my opinion.

One contestant early on, can’t remember which one, was kicked off largely because he made the fatal mistake of singing a Duran Duran song. Sorry, but Toby has always looked and sounded more Duran Duran than Supernova to me. But tonight, he rocked.

Maybe the cover does matter as much as the book?

That said, I’m back to rooting for Lukas or Storm. Dilana has lost me. She started the show all self-deprecating and “I don’t know what I’m doing here”. Then she got all this attention and turned into an overconfident monster. And now she’s just getting boring and I can’t help but think the bad things happening to her are karma. Also, it appears song writing may be her kryptonite.

Exciting. I’m such a sucker for that show.

    maybe you are hair-prejudice.

    I’m a Toby fan, actually. And I missed his blond hair last night. :(

    And tho I thought Storm’s performance last night was her best yet, I’m so not a Storm fan. She bugs.

    I am NOT on the Lukas bandwagon, AT ALL. And that crap he did last night was, well…CRAP. He ruined that Bon Jovi song.

    I was a Dilana fan, but I’m not so sure after last night. you’re right, her ego is taking flight and I’m not liking that. But she’s as cute as a bug.

    I know lots of folks who are picking Magni…and that wouldn’t surprise me. He is growing on me.

    I already miss Ryan. Storm should’ve gone last week instead of Ryan.

    Mel, maybe it’s because I’ve always hated Bon Jovi that Lukas can’t wreck one of their songs :-)

    I wasn’t a big Storm fan until the past few weeks. She’s growing on me…

    I’m with you on Ryan though. Liked him.

    I just find both Toby and Magni terribly boring. Talented, but boring. Toby is hot, though :-) While Lukas is, well, strange.

    Ah. I sort of have a soft spot for all of them. It’s so nice to see a singing show where people can actually..gasp!.. sing..

    I don’t even know who I’m rooting for.

    I think Lucas, because he seems to do the most interesting things musicaly..

    I’m a big Lukas fan, if only cuz I want a Toronto RockStar sweep. (And Mr. Pink is pretty sure he went to school with Lukas, so we gotta support the hometown boy *grin*).

    Toby’s growing on me, and I can’t say I’m huge on Magni… as for Dilana, I was never a fan, less so with all the controversy, tho I suspect much of it is producer-induced. Although, if you search YouTube, there’s a video she did years ago, before she tatooed and hair-coloured and hid her face under tons of makeup that really shows how pretty she is and how well she’d do on the pop side.

    Toby blipped on my radar when he sang with Storm on that Bring me Back to Life song. I’ve been crushing on him since (I blogged about him too!)

    I was so disapointed and shocked by Dilana. I didn’t see her fronting Supernova, but now…

    I love Lukas- again, not sure about fronting Supernova. Their songs aren’t as modern as he is. He should go solo.

    It will be interesting, and I’ll be sad when the show is over. It is one of my faves!!
