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.
