"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.

OMG, she's painful. I admire her guts, resilience, unencumbered theatrics, and yen for changing arrangements, but compared to a true personality Dilana she's merely a head-simulating, spandex wearing, turn-trick pony.

This "news item" on TMZ is pathetic! Obviously doing someone or some company a favor. Don't know if you are beholden to some flack or to CBS itself, but this "news item" is a blatant, fake attempt to make a bad show (that I watch religiously) seem relevant. The singer in question, btw, is a caterwauling freakazoid who looks like Celine Dion, sings like a spastic mom, and gyrates around the stage like some kind of Mormon at a disco. Give it UP, TMZ.

She has very little talent. Most of the time listening to her sing on the show is like nails going down a chalkboard!!! One time she sounded decent and it was a slow song, not what you would think of what Supernova will be. One or the other I'm sure that unfortunately we'll hear from her again after the show is over. D-List celebrity her she comes!!

If you noticed they had to take a commerical break before commenting on her performance because they were laughing and could not compose themselves. She can't sing, can't dance and is annoying to watch. It is truly pathetic that she is being kept around for entertainment value when we all know she has no chance to front the band. I'm shocked she wasn't in the bottom three again this week.

Go Zayra!!! Loved the last performance.

She is smokin hot! Of course they are using her for ratings! People aren't really tuning in to see who will be the next singer for Tommy Lee's lame ass band. They want to see hot girls!

OK, I don't watch "Rock Star" and never would, so I can say as a pretty impartial observer that while she's got guts, her pipes are awful.
She's going for some kind of emo Shakira thing, but doesn't have the voice, talent, and sex appeal Shakira does.
Some nerd that works at TMZ's got a crush. How cute.

Zayra looks like someone that guys would like to watch, but watch her on TV so you can turn the sound down. I agree, they've kept her on the show to see what she does next. I can't believe she wasn't in the bottom three this week!!!

It is unfortunate that people think that Zayra is untalented, and that the reason that she is still on the show is to help them gain ratings. So unique equals no talent? I think she is better than some of the other "rockers" on the show. At least she is fun. unpredictable, and she is very TALENTED. It is sad that people have closed minds in regard to "some latino chick" leading a great rock band. Also I think it is comical that people say that she cannot pronunciate correctly, however there are plenty of Americans who cannot pronunciate properly. Sad, sad world! Go Zayra! And if she doesn't make it in this band, she is going to make it as a solo artist because she is that talented!

She is awful and I can't believe someone called her gorgeous. She is far from it.
