Did anyone see the INXS Rock Star show last night? JD did We Are The Champions and did it pretty bad. It was an insult to Queen.
I guess he will be another one that bites the dust.

I'm sure he wasn't out insult Queen. J.D. has been good at what HE does so far, but he's obviously not in Freddie's league. Not too many are. I kinda felt bad for him (and a few others last night) because he was dying out there and he knew it.

I was really surprised by how many bad and 'just so-so' performances there were last night. Only Mig and Ty really knocked it out. J.D. slaughtered WATC. It was a trainwreck.

That show is an insult to Michael Hutchence and specially to all the TV viewers. I used to be an INXS fan in the past. Not anymore.


I'm just glad Queen didn't think of the idea first..;-)

No offense Alex, but I'm sure the band wasn't overly thrilled with MH and the way he went out either. If Queen is doing 2 test shows in the US because they're not sure of the interest, what chance would INXS have? This show is probably the only shot they have of reviving what's left of their careers. Still, I have to laugh when Dave Navarro talks about "performing to 50,000 people with this band". Those days are long gone Dave.

I think J.D. is going off tonight. If not him, then the redheaded butterfly chick. She was just as bad on that Sheryl Crow song. Well, almost as bad.

EDIT - Well, I was sort of right.

Mig, the Black guy..and Jordass are the talented ones on that show.

That scruffy flamer who ruined the Squeeze song can go much man ass.

Suzie, and many of the other girls on there are bar karoke singers at best.

JD has no chance in hell... he already acts like he's a star...he's a nobody...
3 months from now no one will remember his name or face.

I saw one episode.
And I thought to myself, that although this is a step up from American Idol, it still is stinko.

I can't believe JD didn't at least go into the three bottom people. I kinda think he's a jerk, and he's kinda hammy. The girls seem to like him, however.

I've come to the conclusion that this show sucks ass.. Ty (or whatever his name is) doing Everlong..oh my..:-P What a way to ruin my fave Foo song! And WWRY..what was up with the way the crowd was clapping?? I'm sure they told them to do that.

Not knowing the band or the contest well, I believe that the Black guy (sorry, but his name evades me right now) is the best choice. I saw the first episode where he performed very well. He is very talented, and has an energetic stage vibe.
Because he is obviouly different than the previous vocalist, the band will be more free to explore new directions and sounds. There will not be the expectation of recreating the old band and its sound. Perhaps that combination will be what it takes to sell records and get into the public eye.

Its my favorite as well and I have to agree. Although he pulled it out towards the end, the beginning was very shaky and probably the worst performance he's done on the show. And its such a terrific song. He totally did not do it justice.
