Portland singer survives another round on "Rock Star"
Storm Large got some screen time on CBS-TV's "Rock Star: Supernova" Wednesday night, most of it while saying goodbye to Jenny Galt, the Vancouver, B.C., resident who became the third contestant eliminated from the show.
The show, which will produce a frontperson for a newly formed supergroup consisting of former members of Motley Crue, Metallica and Guns n' Roses, began three weeks ago with 15 aspirants competing.
Galt, whose folksy leanings and fresh-scrubbed appearance made her seem ill-matched to the new band from the beginning, received a long, on-camera embrace from Storm as Wednesday night's episode ended.
Large, previously known as the lead singer of the Portland band Storm and the Balls, seemed to stay out of danger with a muscular cover of the Cars classic "Just What I Needed" on Tuesday night. The performance prompted Supernova drummer Tommy Lee to ask to see more of the statuesque blonde, who offered a saucy response: "Six letters," she told Lee. "G-o-o-g-l-e."
The show resumes at 9 p.m. Tuesday on KOIN-TV Channel 6.
