It’s interesting how much a week can change your opinions about the performers. I hated Dilada last week (I think the tongue thing is cheesy and gross) but I thought she was far and away the best tonight. She’s kind of a cross between Stevie Nicks and Rob Zombie. She has a ton of presence and a strong voice.
I sort of liked Storm last week but all her mugging tonight just turned me right off.
I thought Toby was the best last week but he was just ok tonight.
Lukas is probably a strong contender. He’s probably the closest to what the band has in mind as far as image and demeanor but he’s not really that strong on pure vocals.
I liked seeing Jason jam with the band but I wish he’d chosen something harder than “White Rabbit.”
Can Tommy lee ever think of anything more original to say than how much he wants to fuck all the female contestants? His comments to Dilana just came off as immature and demeaning and irrelevant. My regard for Tommy Lee was pretty low to begin with and it’s only gotten lower. I’d actually feel kind of bad for Dilana if she got the gig and then had to deal with a bunch of harrassing come-ons from that leering cretin all the time.
I also wish a lot of the women in general would quit trying to flirt with the band. Do they want to be respected as peers and bandmates or do they want to be treated like groupies?
