It’s been said that there are moments that define us as people.
There are also moments that define a generation.
An event so monumental, that it forever changes the way we look at the world.
These occasions leave indelible memories and influence us in many more ways than the obvious.
They have an impact on art, commerce, government, and on us at our very cores.
You often don’t see these moments coming, but when they arrive, it is the job of the storytellers to make note of it.
It started with cave drawings, moved on to music and literature. Then to stage and film. And even now to humble bloggers.
Historians get the facts, but the true storytellers are expected to capture much, much more.
They must capture a singular moment.
They often only get one shot at it.
One of those such moments is upon us this week…
Supernova is going to choose a lead singer.
But, dear friends, we can play a bigger role than just that of mere storytellers.
We can influence history.
All we have to do is vote…
For the right person.
And that person is Lukas.
He is the Canadian kid who spent his rough teen years on the streets of Toronto.
Lukas was the first person to perform on the show. And his first song was Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell.” They probably should have just crowned him as the winner right then and there.
Or my favourite of the season, “Creep.”
The evil Dilana thought she was tricking Lukas into singing “Creep.” Telling the camera that “if he can’t sing it, he shouldn’t be here.” Well, baby, Lukas can sing ANYTHING! Can-a-da!! Whoooooooooooooooo!
Now might be a good time to mention that I get a little bit competitive when Canadians are competing against people from other countries.
In anything. Lawn bowling. You name it.
Lukas also sang the crap out of:
He even performed a Supernova original with the band.
Last week, the other contestants peer pressured him into trying Bon Jovi’s “Living On a Prayer.” Awesome.
Which he immediately followed up by an original that he dedicated to his mother, “Headspin.”
So, by this point it should be completely obvious why your should vote for Lukas.
The show is on CBS at 9 eastern tonight.
Immediately after, you can go and start voting on the Rockstar website. You can vote as many times as you want.
It will make one Canadian boy very happy.
Lukas will probably appreciate it too.
Oh yeah, don’t forget all that “moments” crap.
