Elimination Episode 5

During the talky, talky, recap "meanwhile, back at the mansion" crap, Ryan actually had some supportive, positive comments to say to Lukas. Maybe he isn't the asshat I thought he was.

Q&A between the couch and the rawkers, blah blah blah.

Encore: Ryan ~ was there any doubt? He did well, but I think last night's performance was better.

BawkBawk gets right to it {HAHAHAHAHA, I Kill me!} and starts announcing the Bottom 3: Jill, Dana & Patrice. 1 out of 3, I'm slipping. Interestingly, there were very few Oooo's & aaaah's & "NO!" coming out of the audience when Jill was announced. She's not a crowd favourite. I'm just saying.

Jill performs "Alone" by Heart. No craziness, no asshattery, just stands up there and belts it out. Well done & she gets a standing O from SP. I wonder if she chose this song in response to Gilby's criticism & holding up Ann Wilson as a woman rocker who doesn't flaunt her sexuality for stage presence? Just a thought.

Side note, BawkBawk tattles on Toby & Dana who both missed their rehearsals with the House Band. Who in their right mind would ever skip a chance to jam with these guys?

Dana sings "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals. Man, that is too much voice for someone so young. She just looks awkward on stage to me, like a colt that hasn't grown into her legs yet. She doesn't seem comfortable up there ~ I hope it's something she learns in time, cuz with those pipes she could have an amazing career.

Patrice finishes up the Bottom 3 with "Eternal Life" by Jeff Buckley. Never heard the song. Didn't really care for it ~ I'm sure she sang it well, but I didn't personally like the song. Also, another Buddha Bow.

I have a feeling that Patrice is gone.

Gilby announces for all those who will remain that SP will be giving them a new track to write lyrics melody individually. I guess this is where the band sees what the rawkers are bringing to the table. Who can back up what they've been saying with some actual proof? Only time will tell.

Gilby tells Jill she has made some bad choices but she saved herself tonight with her performance. Dana is told she is developing well, but is there enough time for her to grow? Patrice is a good singer & performer, but he questions her being in the Bottom 3 yet again with a performance that showcased T.Lee on the drums.

Hatchet Man TL tells Dana "You've got to go. You've come so far, but you have so much farther to go."
Dana has some very gracious & mature last words which Jason acknowledges, saying "You've got a long way to go ~ but you're going to go a long way". Finally! Someone is writing better stuff for them. Let's see how long it lasts, shall we?

You gotta admire her moxie. Dana has not been shy about her lack of.... seasoning, shall we say? But doesn't take no shite from anyone either.

I can't wait to see what sort of songs are going to come out of this next assignment. Please, Lord in Heaven above, no "Stop, Go"!
