Supernova Has Their Fill of Phil

Zayra should be breathing a sigh of relief, because instead of sending her home, the guys from Supernova sent Phil Ritchie packing on last week's Rock Star. The 28-year-old frontman of Lennex tried to save himself with a rockin' rendition of a Failure song, "Smoking Umbrellas."
