"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.

she is the worst singer. No vocal range at all. I also do believe she in kept on the show for ratings. It surprises me every week that she is still coming back. so much for ratings.

I think the singers this season are so lame compared to the ones last year. They are making their sad attempts to look like hot rockers, and end up looking like clowns

I don't think that anyone has a problem with her being a "latino chick" and her being unique is not why they don't think she is talented either. She IS very unique and has a sex appeal that no one can deny...but she doesn't have a very good voice. If it wasn't for her antics she would be comparable to a "good" karaoke singer. Like many of the young girl singers of today, she may have a nice but short lived career in pop music.

Whatever..........this chick is too skinny, she vibrates like she is loosing it in a fit or overdose or something and she can not sing. I agree it must be ratings. Sorry to see Dana go she was transforming into some real talent in my opinion. Zayra on the other hand is a big joke and definitely not right for Supernova. I too will boycott the show in the furture if this chick even comes close to winning. She sucks all together and it is not because she is latino it is because she stinks.

Zayra is very beautiful...too bad you can't unterstand a word she's singing. Everyone loved her performance of "Everybody Hurts" but to me it was like stepping on a cat's tail. She turned one of the most beautiful songs into an indistinguishable wail. I completely agree with what the house band told her in the webisode this week...she has to stop rearranging songs, do just one the way it was intended to be done. If she lasts another week (barring someone else royally screwing up) I will be completely surprised. I'm still irked that Supernova kept her on last week when she obviously performed the worst of the bottom three. They even said that it was that guys best performance. Yes, it's important to have a lead singer committed to the band (in that respect I do doubt Zayra's commitment as well), however, you must also listen to your potential fans who routinely place her in the bottom three. Even if she doesn't land in the ultimate bottom three for the week, she has been in the bottom three at some point during the night most weeks. My criticism has nothing to do with her being latina, but with the fact that she can't sing. There are plenty of latinas who can sing and who deserve the chance to be showcased as Zayra is being showcase.

Go Storm and Dilana. Those are the real rocker chicks of the show.

Me and the kids can't stand her! Every Weds. we are so disappointed. Every time she ends up in the bottom 3 we are stuck watching her sing again. She just keeps coming back. When she finally gets booted, we will have a party!!! She can sing, well kinda, I guess. Everything about her just makes us sick. We always tape the show so we can fast forward through her performance!

sign me (us),
anxiously waiting for Zayra to get booted

I think the show is definitely going to come down to Lucas & Dilana...ByeBye Zayra. Storm Large is also a contender but is not quite in the same class as Lucas & Dilana. Just my opinion.

You've got to be kidding. Zayra isn't some hot new talent. The members of Supernova are being more than polite to keep Zayra in the competition. They have her around for amusement and the entertainment value.

I personally don't have a problem with her being latino either, but for this particular band, it doesn't go together. Good grief people. Admit it.

I think she's pitiful. She can't talk, can't sing and isn't even easy on the eyes. She reminds me of a young Celine Dion, only worse. And dance, that she definitely can't do. She doesn't sing the type of music that the group is looking for it's the crotch shots she continues to give that keeps her on the show. I say send her packing.

I think that it is funny that everyone thinks that she cannot sing. If she could not sing would she be on the show? Oh that's right, it is just about her sex appeal. PAHLEEZ! She is more talented than most of that crap that they call music that is being pumped out on the radio. At least she can sing, and be original. She doesn't need to conform to what people expect a "rockstar" or "popstar" to be like or look like. And it is obviously about her being a "latino chick", and that is a damn shame. Oh, and about the pronunciation thing...her pronunciation of things is comperable to Mr. Bush. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

I find it ironic that the girl that performed with Dilby or Darby or whatever his name is got criticised for 'grinding' and resorting to sexuality.

Um..er..and Zayra doesn't?
