"Rock Star: Supernova's" Breakout Star

8/3/2006 1:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

zayra_Tommy Lee and Dave Navarro may be established musical bad boys but to catch some true rock star antics on CBS' "Rock Star: Supernova" check out gorgeous contestant Zayra Alvarez.

With her lively and outrageous performances of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me" and "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence, the Puerto Rican songstress has stolen the show and become the one to watch this season.

Unfortunately, despite haunting renditions of REM's "Everybody Hurts" and K's Choice "Not an Addict," Zayra has routinely landed in the bottom three.

But since you never know what she is going to do, say (her sassy retorts to the judges' critiques are worth the price of admission alone) or wear next, fans are tuning in just to catch the latest episode of the Zayra show.

A fact that even the judges, Navarro and Lee, pointed out on this week's episode.



A mix of Blondie's Debbie Harry with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O, Zayra's fashion forward ensembles (like the blue skin tight catsuit or her cape, gloves, and boots superhero trifecta) are a welcome change to the standard rock star uniform of black jeans, tank tops and wrist cuffs.

Zayra has the potential to become a musical fashion icon - think Gwen Stefani or J.Lo but edgier.

And if Zayra winds up on top at the end of the competition, the leggy Latina may find that the hardest part of the gig isn't winning but fending off Tommy Lee while on tour.

Check out Zayra Alvarez in all her glory on "Rock Star: Supernova" Tuesdays at 9pm on CBS.

Yeah of course the show is lame and so is Supernova (where'd they get that name anyway???) Geez, I did watch Rock Star last time and had fun, but told myself I would NOT watch this time....but last night, channel surfing, I came upon Zayra and her defending performance-it was FAB!!!! I agree with JC on Aug 3rd...she's not right for Supernova but she has a great schtick! Her voice is supposed to crack in those song spots....she was terrific. Go Latina's!!!

I realy was pissed when jill and the other guy went home because i thoought that it should of been her and patrice ..Jill and the other guy where not my favourites but they deserved to go to Vegas Over those chicks .....Patrice wears no make-up ....even the guys do so wtf! i dont like either of them so i am glad that sluty nutcase went home THANK GOD! but when will patrice go...hmm

All you "Gimme a Break" cliche meisters relent. She has spirit that pushes through the crap despite a not great voice - definitely entertaining to experience - her own song was excellent as was her rendition of the band that Supernova had not heard of. BTW, has anyone noticed that Supernova's own tunes barely rock and are extremely derivative?????????? Definitely a place for her near the top of the entertainment universe with all the drivel that passes as talent. Plus had the most eloquent and precise departing speech so far = GUTS galore...more than a catsuit!!!! suckerzzzzzzzzzz.

Just the fact that she was always in the bottom three should tell you something. I think that she lasted as long as she did so the guys in the band could have something to talk about. When she was on, it was bathroom break time!!!!!

She dresses that way to detract from her poor singing abilites.

Have you been watching the show with the volume on???? The chick CANNOT sing!!! She shouldn't have made it to LA, nevermind this far!!! They're just keeping her around because she isn't boring (even though she CANNOT SING AT ALL) and she dresses like a whore!

If they pick her, there's no way I'll ever go to a show or buy a Supernova CD, but I would for Dilana, Toby, Lucas, or Storm.

She is the worst singer and people don't watch her because she is good they tune in to see what the freak is going to do next. If she wins this I will never watch rockstar again.

She's like Britney Spears. You don't want to hear her sing, but you wouldn't mind seeing her take her clothes off. No talent.

Storm Large will win. Beautiful, sexy and TALENTED.

The only reason Zayra is still on the show is to draw attention and get t.v. ratings. I'm sure the producers have told SuperNova to keep her on. This season of RockStar sucks and is so bad (nothing compared to all the talent RockStar/INXS brought) they need somebody or something like her to make people watch. She is so freaking bad that its almost comical. I'm so sure they're gonna pick some latino chick to lead their band that can't even pronunciate correctly. GIMME A BREAK!

I think she's awesome. Not right for Supernova but she will definitely have a successful career as a result of this show. I think that Rock Star this season is full of talent and is a much superior show to all the reality crap that's out there. I agree, Storm Large rocks!
