Beautiful blonde teen Shannon Magrane was eliminated on tonight's (March 15) episode of 'American Idol' -- turns out America did not like her rendition of 'One Sweet Day.' However, she was given a momentary stay of execution and sang the Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men song one more time in an attempt to earn the sole save from the judges. Sadly, they chose not to give her their only pass of the season. Say what? Are they crazy? Perhaps just a little.
If you're a 16-year-old in tonight's episode of 'American Idol,' not only do you have the challenge of proving yourself despite your young age, you also have to sing a song from your 1995 birth year -- a time when some of the biggest singing divas were at their peak. Tonight, Shannon Magrane took a bite out of the Mariah Carey / Boyz II Men collaboration 'One Sweet Day,' and after terrifying the judges with her choice, she pleasantly surprised them.
‘American Idol’ contestant Shannon Magrane may look like your average high school prom queen, but when the 16-year-old opens her mouth she has a voice that far transcends her teenage years. Singing ‘Go Light Your World’ by Kathy Troccoli, she remained strong and consistent from the first note until the very last.
The Top 24 of Season 11 of 'American Idol' was signed, sealed and delivered on tonight's episode (Feb. 23.) Next week, we move onto the live shows where America's votes count. We also will get to see the hopefuls in their element and we'll get a clearer picture of who the front-runners are, since it's still TBD.
"I have ties that are older than you are.” These are the words Steven Tyler used to describe David Leathers, Jr. The 17-year-old from Fayetteville, N.C. showed off his vocal chops as he performed Celine Dion's 'Because You Loved Me,' in Hollywood. This kid hit his notes like a real man! Just remember, age ain't nothing but a number, especially when it comes to Little David Leathers, cause his voice is grown up!
