Former 'Rock Star: Supernova' Winner Lukas Rossi Competing on 'The Voice'
The winner of the 2006 Mark Burnett-produced series takes another stab at rock stardom via NBC's new singing competition show.
Lukas Rossi, the Canadian rocker who won the 2006 CBS series Rock Star: Supernova will get another shot at stardom on NBC's new singing competition show The Voice. Both programs are produced by Mark Burnett, with the latter set to premiere on April 26.
As the winner of Rock Star, Rossi was awarded the role of super group singer, fronting a band comprised of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, Metallica's Jason Newsted, and Guns N' Roses' Gilby Clarke. But after a successful tour of North America, Australia and New Zealand, little was heard of the band and Rossi went on to pursue other projects.
Rossi is not the only former singing competition contestant to find his way to The Voice. As Burnett told THR in March, ex-American Idol semifinalist Frenchie Davis is also a Voice contender.
Rossi tweeted on Sunday night: "I have one thing to say to you all: thank you for your support and your belief. I will never stop pursuing my dreams."
