Siobhan Magnus of 'American Idol' performs
Singer: Siobhan Magnus
Song: "Wicked Game"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Oh my goodness. Siobhan is a glass-blowing apprentice. I like her. She's so awkward and clueless. Unfortunately, that cluelessness carried over into this performance, which isn't exactly right. Parts of it are so close. I love the flower sprouting from her ear and the tattoo peeking out from under her sleeve. Between the parts that are too low, the key changes and the dull arrangement, there are some moments where Siobhan's voice seems like it's on the verge of blowing the roof off. I suspect Siobhan may really have the biggest voice around for the ladies. I hope we get to see that.
Ellen, Randy, Kara and Simon Say: Kara kinda liked her, warning her about getting nasal. Kara says what sets her apart is the emotion. Wow. I agree with Randy, who says that he didn't really sense her pipes until the second verse. Ellen loved it. "You really are a funny little thing, aren't you?" Simon says, wondering why she chose the song she did. Siobhan's answer confuses Simon.
