No, not really. It's Dilana, of course, who looks thrilled. Supernova gets up to meet Dilana onstage. Shirtless Tommy tests his bass drum triggers, and Brooke announces "Supernova Featuring Dilana on Vocals" like they're the goddamn Beatles or something. I'm no lawyer, so I'm wondering if performing as "Supernova Featuring Dilana on Vocals" puts them on safer legal ground. The picture gets kind of weird. It takes me a minute to figure out that instead of raw video like usual, they're doing some kind of tape-to-film process for the performance to give it extra-legitimacy or something. Like this is suddenly Woodstock or The Last Waltz going on in here. It would probably work if I didn't find it so distracting.
As for the song itself? Like I said before, you've been hearing snippets of it all season long. It's some pretty standard bar-band party-rock, not quite as fresh or new as Tommy claimed in the season opener, but not terrible either. Dilana doesn't quite rise above the material, it saddens me to say. Even more distressing is when four hoochie dancers come onstage from each side to do their hoochie dancer thing. Dilana even dances with them during the guitar break, complete with an unfortunate Michael Jackson leg kick in there. For the first time, I wonder if she's completely wrong for this band after all; seems like she's going to get bored with them in a hurry, if she isn't already there. The song ends, the crowd goes wild, she bumps fists with Gilby, and then we're back to the straight video look that we're more familiar with. Don't do that again, show. It bugs me. Brooke walks Dilana to the end of the runway.
Because it's Dave's job to comment, he says, "I gotta tell you, those four were awesome." Dilana looks a lot happier to hear that than she did actually singing the song. As the band makes its way back to the dais, Dave tells the Supernovices, "No more excuses. That's the prize. Time to crank it up." Lukas just looks cranky. Brooke says that we're still getting an encore this week, plus something about the bottom three after the break.
Coming back, Brooke says that she can't wait to hear who Supernova is going to sing with next week. Jason babbles about how cool that was, and reassures the other Supernovices that they'll get chances as well. Jason says that he especially dug the dancing girls. Tommy takes that opportunity to give them a plug: "Those were Ivan Kane's Royal Jelly Super Hottie Dancers from Club Forty Deuce." Damn, that's a lot of words for someone like Tommy to remember.
