Rock Star: Supernova, September 6 – It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp , by Jenn Brasler: How many products has Rock Star: Supernova pimped this season? There’s only one week left, but there’s still plenty of time to pimp some more. At least this time one of the overhyped products is a prize for one singer. Is Toby the lucky one, or will he be on his way out the door?
Rock Star: Supernova, September 5 - Double Vision, by Jenn Brasler: We’re down to the final five, which means that each singer gets to sing two songs - one cover and one original. Storm has been slipping in the rankings and receiving some tough criticism from Supernova. Is tonight her night to shine, or will she continue on her downward spiral?
“Every Week I Was More Myself” - An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Ryan , by Jenn Brasler: In the past few weeks, Ryan went from underdog to dark horse, as Dave Navarro dubbed him.

The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 9, by Scott Keith: As we wind down this year’s show, it seems obvious who they want in the finale and who they don’t. But a more important issue seems to be becoming, can Supernova actually write a good song themselves? Find out all this and more in this week’s Rock Star rant!
Rock Star: Supernova, August 30: Six-Fingered Man, by Jenn Brasler: If the singers were a body, as Dilana seems to think they are, they’d be a six-fingered man. Because that’s how many singers are left. Six. Have you heard? There are six singers left. Well, five now. I guess body parts are pretty expendable.
Rock Star: Supernova, August 29 – Walking on Broken Glass , by Jenn Brasler: Who would think a broken glass would cause so much commotion?

The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 8, by Scott Keith: The identity of this week's victim was never in doubt, but the more interesting story is becoming whether Dilana will have a nervous breakdown live on TV as a result of her big mouth. Will she bring the goods to back up her big talk? Find out in this week's Rock Star rant!
Rock Star: Supernova, August 23 - Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off , by Jenn Brasler: But apparently Dilana wouldn’t know because she can’t lie. Instead, she creates drama that almost overshadows the elimination show. Why is she picking on Ryan and Lukas? And what do they have to say in response?
Rock Star: Supernova, August 22 – Bittersweet Symphony, by Jenn Brasler: Last week Toby thrilled women everywhere by running around the pool naked for “Solsbury Hill.” This week it’s Dilana’s turn. What song is she willing to strip for? And why is she so determined to sing it?
“I Wouldn’t Change a Thing” – An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Zayra , by Jenn Brasler: Zayra was arguably the most polarizing contestant on Rock Star: Supernova.

Read on to find out what Zayra thinks the show is doing for music, what she’s learned, and why she thinks she stuck around so long.
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 7, by Scott Keith: Why is Scott so happy this week? The answer should be obvious for anyone to who has been reading his rants on the show, but a little suspense never hurt anyone. Still, he's really, REALLY happy with the result this week, even if the unplugged version of Rockstar was a bit of a bore. He just wants to stress how incredibly happy about the result he was. Really really really happy.
Rock Star: Supernova, August 16 - Shiny Happy People , by Jenn Brasler: Patrice keeps landing in the bottom three and fighting her way back into the competition. Will she do the same this week, or will she finally be on her way home? And what happens tonight to make many people very, very happy?
Rock Star: Supernova, August 15 - Pretty Vegas , by Jenn Brasler: The singers spent part of last week in Vegas, and the partying may have hurt some of their performances.

“I Just Can’t Deny What I Like to Do” - An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Josh , by Jenn Brasler: Josh, AKA Jenn’s boyfriend, was the unfortunate victim of a double elimination, even though he seemed to be a fan favorite. Here he talks to Jenn about playing the guitar, his favorite and least favorite performances, and how he saw it all coming.
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 6, by Scott Keith: In this week's rant, Scott Keith ponders the question of just what exactly it's going to take to get rid of Zayra, in between some pretty good rock songs from the remaining candidates for Supernova. And for once, an elimination that's actually pretty surprising in a show that hasn't exactly been filled with surprises (other than the continued career of Zayra). Who goes home this week and why is Scott surprised? Read on to find out!
Rock Star: Supernova, August 9 - Crazy Train , by Jenn Brasler: Crazy, but that’s how it goes / Millions of people living as foes / Maybe it’s not too late / To STOP VOTING FOR ZAYRA.
Rock Star: Supernova, August 8 - Down Under, by Jenn Brasler: Toby, everyone’s favorite Australian rocker, struggled last week to prove himself as a contender. Will his talents alone allow him to climb back up to the top this week, or will he remain… well, down under? And if his talents aren’t enough, what does he have up his sleeve that will help him stand out?
“You’ll See Me on the Red Carpet Somewhere” - An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Dana , by Jenn Brasler: Dana was the fifth singer turned away by Supernova, despite the fact that she showed marked improvement in the past couple of weeks. Read on to find out who she thinks will win, who she wants to win, and more about that tattoo.
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 5, by Scott Keith: Although Zayra managed to escape the bottom three this week, despite putting on a crazed and possibly substance-influenced performance the night before, your intrepid Rock Star reporter Scott Keith is left wondering what the goth superhero costume she was wearing might have been leading to on the elimination show. How bad WAS her performance? And who was actually so bad that she was not in the bottom three this week? Check out Scott’s rant to find out.
Rock Star: Supernova, August 2 - It’s the End of the World as We Know It , by Jenn Brasler: Things that will happen before Zayra gets eliminated from this show: The price of gas falls back below $2. Bill Gates declares bankruptcy. Paris Hilton is considered a respectable member of society. Tommy stops hitting on anyone with breasts. Hell freezes over.
Rock Star: Supernova, August 1 - A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me, by Jenn Brasler: This week’s selection of songs features some unexpected tunes like “Don’t You Forget About Me,” “Can’t Get Enough,” and “867-5309.” (Yes, you read that correctly.) Will the singers rock them or leave the arrangements untouched? Which singer leaves the band speechless (and not in a good way)? And what surprise will Magni be getting from Supernova?
“I Definitely Didn’t See That Coming”: An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Phil , by Jenn Brasler: It was clear to everybody – Zayra was certainly going home this week on Rock Star: Supernova. Except she didn’t – Phil Ritchie did instead! Was he as surprised as everybody else? Where did all that stuff about commitment come from? What did he think of song choices? Phil answers all these questions and many more, right here!
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 4, by Scott Keith: The biggest mystery this week is a toss-up between how many times Jill can stick her foot into her mouth and how many words Phil says that we can actually translate into English. While the eventual winner may not be obvious yet, the deadwood on the show is definitely piling up, which this week was another example of. Will they make the right choice in their elimination this week, or just give Scott Keith more ammunition to complain about them?
Rock Star: Supernova, July 26 - It’s All Been Done, by Jenn Brasler: Jill thinks there’s nothing new to do in rock. Supernova definitely doesn’t agree. Now that she’s in danger of going home, will she eat her words and try something different? And will another singer criticized for never doing new things have to battle for survival?
Rock Star: Supernova, July 25 - Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers, by Jenn Brasler: Last week’s episode was full of drama, and though this week is a little calmer, there’s still plenty of hell raising going on. Will Dana find some liquid courage? Will Josh actually listen to Supernova? And who else will join the Go Away, Zayra Club?
“I’m Not Going Anywhere” – An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Jenny , by Jenn Brasler: Jenny was the third singer eliminated from Rock Star: Supernova after just avoiding last week’s bottom three. Here she talks to Jenn about song choices, her favorite performance, and her pick to win.
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 3, by Scott Keith: OK, so Scott messed up and couldn't tape the elimination show, but that doesn't mean he has any less to say on the performance show. Would he have to suffer through another Coldplay song or whining emo rocker? Check it out and find out for yourself
Rock Star: Supernova, July 19 – Like a Virgin, by Jenn Brasler: Dana describes herself as a rock and roll virgin, and she’s certainly shown that on stage. In fact, some people believe she should be on a pop show, not a rock show. Now that she’s in danger of elimination, will she break out the hard rock?
Rock Star: Supernova, July 18 – Shut Up , by Jenn Brasler: Everyone is whining this week, whether it’s on stage or at the mansion. Why is Jill so upset with Patrice? What’s up with Phil’s voice? And will these people ever just shut up and rock?
“You’ve Got to Screw Up to Know It’s Not What You Need to Do” – An Interview with Rock Star: Supernova’s Chris, by Jenn Brasler: Chris was the second singer eliminated from Rock Star: Supernova after landing in the bottom three two weeks in a row. Read on to find out who he thinks should have gone home instead, how he wound up with the songs he sang, and the story behind his Rock Star audition.
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 2, by Scott Keith: Really, if Chris paid as much attention to the band as he did to his hairstylist and makeup artist, he might not be in the bottom three again for the second week in a row. The question is, can anyone manage to butcher their song worse than poor Chris did? Is this the week that Dilana snaps and murders everyone in the audience? Will Tommy Lee be drunk enough to get a few good lines in? Check out The SmarK Rock Star Rant to find out!
Rock Star: Supernova, July 12 - Fix You, by Jenn Brasler: Supernova wants to make it clear that their comments are supposed to help the singers improve, not make them mad. And if you don’t get that, they’ll say it over and over. Have their comments helped Chris? Or will he land in the bottom three again and put on another show when the band is looking to see the real him?
Rock Star: Supernova, July 11 - White Wedding, by Jenn Brasler: No, no one’s getting married. (Josh hasn’t proposed to Jenn yet.) But as Billy Idol said, it’s a nice day for a white wedding. Jill is prepared for hers. But why is she wearing a wedding gown on stage at a rock show? (Warning: some questions may not be answered.)
The SmarK Rant for Rock Star: Supernova, Week 1, by Scott Keith: Scott Keith is back for his weekly SmarK Rants on Rock Star: Supernova. As always, Scott brings his unique opinions, pulling no punches. Does he agree with the who the "tattooed guitar gods" at right sent home? This and more is a click away!
Rock Star: Supernova, July 6 – Don’t Come Around Here No More , by Jenn Brasler: At the end of last night’s performance show, we learned that Magni, Chris, and Phil had the lowest number of votes so far.

I’ll Be the Judge of That! – Rock Star: Supernova, July 5, by David Bloomberg: Rock Star has returned, and so has the Foxes On Idol judging panel. Well, at least one of them for now.

Rock Star: Supernova, July 5 - Let it Loose , by Jenn Brasler: 15 singers are vying for a chance to front a new rock band. They’ve all brought their talent to the Mayan and are reading to let it loose. Unfortunately for some of them, they didn’t bring as much as they should have. How will Zayra fare?
Rock Star: Supernova – A Preview , by Jenn Brasler: Rock Star is back, and this time a brand-new band is looking for a lead singer. They have 15 singers to choose from, and they’re all definitely qualified. Which one already has two gold albums? Which one has a boot named after her? And who the heck is Storm Large?
