Siobhan Magnus leaves American Idol 2010 (VIDEO)

Siobhan Magnus has become the latest hopeful to be eliminated from American Idol 2010.

More shocking for us than Siobhan’s departure was the fact that Casey James and Michale Lynche joined her in the bottom three. We thought for sure that Casey had a huge following out there! Aaron Kelly was good this week granted, but then country is his thing and he has been so weak for so long now that we were really expecting him to be closer to the bottom last night.

As the result was announced, Ryan Seacrest praised Siobhan’s “independent spirit, laser focus, incredible work ethic”. When asked how her stint on ‘Idol’ impacted her and her sisters, Magnus replied, “I did my best and I hope that I was able to show them what we’re all capable of.” Her final song was a rousing rendition of Aretha Franklin’s ‘Think,’ complete with a signature SCREAM at the end.

The judges unusually gave Siobhan some touching praise before the show ended, with Randy Jackson telling her “Keep being yourself. You learned how to be an artist on this show and face the adversity and everything. I think that you got an amazing career in front of you.”

Do you think that Siobhan deserved to get the boot last night or were you hoping for the departure of one of the other five contestants? Leave your comments below!
