shannon2 Shannon Magrane, the 16-year-old singer blessed with a powerhouse voice and moxie, was eliminated from tonight on American Idol (Elise Testone and Erika Van Pelt rounded out the bottom three).

“This is just a big giant stepping stone for me,” said Magrane, who performed the Mariah Carey/Boyz II Men tune ‘One Sweet Day’ on Wednesday.  “A giant one.  Me being voted off the show, well it’s made me feel upset, but it’s made me want to work even harder and push myself and challenge myself even more.”
