In its first season Rock Star found a new lead vocalist for INXS. This time the competition wants a singer able to pierce the sonic boom generated by a new group formed by bad-boy drummer Tommy Lee, onetime Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke. Supernova will record an album, tour the world and, if all goes well, be profiled some day on VH1's Behind the Music. The show has a good heart beneath all the tattoos, piercings and 'tude: Everyone, no matter how good or bad, seems honored to carry the flame of rock and roll. One singer, named Dilana, did such a ferocious cover of Nirvana's "Lithium," she practically ate the drum kit. Tommy Lee, stunned by her awesomeness, simply rubbed a tear from his eye.
