In a bit of a shock, Siobhan Magnus is going home. And there’s no “save” for the judges.
She had a good voice but had trouble creating a consistent musical sound. And that screech was irritating. I also didn’t like her stiff performance style and facial expressions while she sang. I could never buy into whatever she was trying to sell.
But she sure was odd with her clothing picks and hair styles. Vote for the Worst can’t be happy about this at all. She was the immediate post-Tim Urban pick and wasn’t able to get the votes to keep her around.
Everyone was expecting Michael Lynche to go home again. In fact, I didn’t even have Siobhan among my bottom three picks. (I had chosen Aaron and Crystal.) Instead, it was Michael, Casey James and Siobhan.
And amazingly, “Idol” finished on time. Actually, it was early.
