Shannon Magrane, the towering 16-year-old vocalist of Tampa, Fla., was booted from the Fox singing competition Thursday. Magrane was eliminated after performing her version ofand Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” and her failure to convince the show’s judges to save her from being voted off. So, it wasn't really a sweet day for Shannon Magrane on “American Idol.”
Magrane was among the bottom three vote-getters along with Elise Testone, 28, of Charleston, S.C., and Erika Van Pelt, 26, of South Kingstown, R.I.
After eliminating Magrane, there are now 10 finalists remaining in the competition plus the disqualification of Jermain Jones, 25, from Pine Hill, N.J. who was booted for not telling that he had outstanding arrest warrants.
