The Rock Star contestants are giving a big thumbs down to Supernova's debut single.

At least that's the word from ousted Vancouver singer Jenny Galt.

"A lot of people in the group are skeptical about what kind of music they are playing.

"(Supernova) say they want to do something fresh and new, but then the first track we got to hear, a lot of people were just like, 'Ew. I'm not sure if I like this,' " says the 29-year-old Montreal-born pop-rocker.

"It sounded just like that same old, boys rock 'n' roll kind of glam thing they said they weren't going to be doing. It was a bit surprising."

Galt, who was eliminated from the CBS/Global reality series this week, says the finalists are also questioning Supernova's commitment to itself.

Many feel its members, Tommy Lee (Motley Crue's drummer), Jason Newsted (former Metallica bassist) and Gilby Clarke (former Gun N' Roses' guitarist), are not exactly hellbent on making the band a success.

"Because Tommy Lee's got Motley Crue and Jason Newsted's very passionate about (Canadian metal band) Voivod, there are a lot of questions as to whether this band is going to really take off. That's up in the air," she says.

"And then, how much commitment do the actual members of Supernova have? There was a lot of chit-chat in the mansion about that."

While only time will tell if the finalist's concerns are justified, only one -- the person who is named the band's singer during the show's finale in September -- will truly be affected.

And that person, Galt says, will likely be Toronto's Lukas Rossi, Australia's Toby Rand or South Africa's Dilana Robichaux.

"When I first got there, I really had the attitude that I wanted to win. But then, as it went along, and Lukas, Dilana and Toby kind of emerged, it was a little hard for everyone else," Galt says, adding she hopes Rossi takes it, but not because he's Canadian.

"I think he's most suited for that particular band. He's got that arrogant rock 'n' roll personality about him and his style suits them."

While Galt was prepared to change her own style to fit into what Supernova wanted, she now admits she wasn't the best choice.

"I am a rocker chick to an extent, but there is a whole softer side to me. I have always loved playing a piano ballad to a room of silent listeners and, above all, I'm a songwriter. I want to release an album of great songs."

Galt, who once toured Canada with the band Cherrybomb, is planning to return home to Vancouver in the next week.

After that, she says she's going to take advantage of all the opportunities life throws at her -- no matter how scary.

"All my complaints in my life have been I want a bigger and fuller life. Now I've realized, through this, that it's me who's been holding myself back because I've been too afraid," she says, adding Rock Star changed her.

"It's not like I can flip this switch and I'm this crazy and wild person, but it's a path I'm on. Things from here on out are going to be very different for me."

Oh the band is gonna totally suck!   And that's exactly what I was trying to figure out- what kind of band are they even going to be?  Metal?  Rock?  Aside form Jason the other 2 are probably just broke and have nothing better going on.
