Dave!I swear, Rock Star: INXS keeps getting better and better every week. Tonight's episode was amazing from start to finish, with some stunning covers of classic (and not-so-classic) songs that had me wondering why anybody would ever watch that lame American Idol crap ever again. While some performances were definitely weaker than others, each one was worth a listen. Jordis, as usual, was great... with a soulful rendition of Knockin' on Heaven's Door. I also enjoyed MiG's sweet take on Baby I Love Your Ways and Marty channeling Curt Cobain singing Britney with Hit Me Baby One More Time.

It's interesting to extrapolate fan favorites by looking at the number of comments on each performer's most recent blog entry. As of this writing, the totals are as follows:

It would seem that J.D. is currently favored, which is really too bad considering he is such an ass. Then we drop to Jordis, which is not surprising, as she's amazing. After MiG and Marty, everybody else is kind of trailing, with Jessica and Deanna at the bottom of the heap. I still maintain that J.D. or MiG will take the prize. Personally, I think that MiG is their best bet because not only is he a fellow Aussie, but he actually seems like a very talented guy that works well with a band. J.D. is a loner who wants it his way or no way, and INXS would be walking away with a loaded cannon if they were to choose him. Jordis is simply too talented to win.

Regardless, both J.D. and Jordis will absolutely end up with recording contracts, so it's not like they will be suffering if MiG gets the gig. Truthfully, they are probably both better off if they don't win.

I certainly hope that whoever is in charge here is smart enough to release a "best of" CD after the show ends, featuring some of the amazing performances we've heard along the way. There are quite a few songs that I definitely wouldn't mind hearing again.

Other than guessing who will win, one question remains: what band is going to step up for season 2 of Rock Star?

Movie Quotable of the Day: "I don't want to be in some cut-rate cover band that butchers the music people come to hear just so you can play your crappy originals!"
Yesterday's Answer: Independence Day (1996) with Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum.

    The movie quote is from: Rock Star.

    I believe that’s the name. Marky Mark sings in a cover band and eventually gets picked up by the “real” band.

    Rock Star: INXS is on in Scotland this week yay!!

    I hope you enjoy it. Unlike American Idol (or Pop Idol, depending on where you live), the show is more about the music than Simon’s bitchy comments and public humiliation.

    I just can’t bring myself to watch RockStar INXS. I was such a huge fan of the band back in the day. I still love their music, but I just get disgusted when I see what they are doing to find a new lead singer. I feel the same way about the TLC show, and I wasn’t a fan of theirs. It just doesn’t seem right.

    For some, music speaks to their soul, they live through it and for it. Trivial things like who, what, where & why, are the last thing they worry about, because the small pointless details can prevent you from something great. Had I never heard the music of Jordis, and a few others, I would have truly been missing out on some great artists. Who cares what kind of forum they are on. Not me.
