You might be thinking of what’s his name from the INXS show.
[quote]Lukas Rossi, born December 21, 1976, is a Canadian musician and singer from Toronto, Ontario and currently a contestant on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova.
Lukas trained at the Royans School For the Musical Performing Arts (whose voice-students include Raine Maida from Our Lady Peace). Lukas has recorded, written, produced and played with his own band Cleavage, as well as co-written, sung and played with various Canadian bands, including I Mother Earth, Tea Party, Edwin and Big Wreck, as well as American band Papa Roach. He also worked with producer and Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, after winning the ‘Best Canadian Unsigned Band’ award at the 2000 NXNE Music Festival in Toronto with his band Cleavage. On May 29th, 2001, Cleavage’s 6-song debut CD, self-titled Cleavage, was released.
After acquiring a publishing deal with EMI Music Canada in 2004, Lukas worked and wrote with producer Dave Tyson (Alannah Myles & Amanda Marshall) in Los Angeles. After that, he recorded demos with producer Gavin Brown (Billy Talent, Three Days Grace), leading to the formation of the band Rise Electric.
Lukas also contributes vocal work for television and radio, singing on national ad campaigns (including McDonald’s) and even animated cartoons during which he sings the intro song to the shows Rescue Heroes and Beyblade.
Rossi has a strong resemblance in dress, mannerisms and singing style to Hawksley Workman, another flamboyant Toronto-based singer who is known for his unusual promotional stunts.
He’s been pertty much at the #1 spot since the show started. He’s very good at producing and I think he’s holding back a bit. I’m pretty sure he’s been asked to. With anyone else, Supernova will be fail. He has a lot more to give them than the others.
But, who knows?
