LAist managed to stop crying for a few minutes last night (over our girl Zayra’s shocking departure last week) to tune into the latest episode of Rockstar: Supernova. So Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and Jason Newsted are continuing their search for a singer to front their band. Here’s what we got left:

Storm Large (yes, again, that’s the name she uses): Good singer, but a little too karaoke for our taste. She’s definitely the show’s resident drama queen. Her rendition of Aerosmith’s “Cryin’” showed us how good of a singer Stephen Tyler really is.

Toby Clark: Yummy Aussie beefcake. He put together an interesting arrangement of Clapton’s “Layla” last night – and as Tommy Lee pointed out, the chicks really dig him.

Ryan Star: The dark, brooding musician who’s piqued our interest lately. He sung an original song of his last night – a romantic ditty about doing it in the backseat of a car. The band asked why the radical improvement over the last few weeks. His answer: “I got laid.” That definitely scored points with Supernova. But he’s got to ease up on the mascara.

Patrice Pike: She also wrote the song she sang last night. We can’t really remember what it was about, but we don’t much care because she’s probably the next to go.

And finally our two favorites:
