Rockstar Television

Posted on April 10, 2012


Watching Jordis Unga on this season of  The Voice reminded me of when singing competitions on television totally rocked out.

Jordis shot to the front of the pack on the first season of Rockstar: INXS; the concept of the show was based upon the surviving members of INXS auditioning new singers to replace the late Michael Hutchence. Jordis did not win, but she did touch many, many fans — and we are thrilled to have her on The Voice.

The following year, Dilana Smith was the female highlight of Rockstar: Supernova, a band build around Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee. Dilana and Jordis were two performers I discovered via those television shows, and after a half-of-a-decade, they still shine bright in my memory.

Browsing YouTube for some videos of Jordis from those days, I came across these clips of Dilana doing “Psycho Killer,” by Talking Heads and Jordis performing David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World.” Love those songs and dig both deliveries. Enjoy.
