LOS ANGELES — Siobhan Magnus really has something to scream about now.
The eccentric 20-year-old glass blower with a penchant for wailing at the end of her “American Idol” performances was eliminated from the Fox singing competition Wednesday.
The judges praised Magnus’ energetic rendition of Shania Twain’s “Any Man of Mine” on Tuesday’s show, but the Marstons Mills, Mass., woman received the fewest viewer votes.
“I did my best, and I hope that I was able to show them what we’re all capable of,” Magnus said when asked about what she wanted her younger sisters take away from her “Idol” experience.
Joining her in the bottom three were 27-year-old construction worker Casey James of Fort Worth, Texas, and 26-year-old personal trainer Michael Lynche of Queens, N.Y.
The judges complimented James’ delicate interpretation of “Don’t!” and Lynche’s soulful rendition of “It Only Hurts When I’m Breathing” on the evening of tunes from mentor Twain’s songbook.
The other finalists remaining in the singing competition are: 24-year-old musician Crystal Bowersox of Toledo, Ohio; 24-year-old paint sales clerk Lee Dewyze of Mount Prospect, Ill.; and 17-year-old high school student Aaron Kelly from Sonestown, Pa.
Next week, the singers will be mentored by Harry Connick Jr. and perform songs from Frank Sinatra.
