Shannon Magrane: The Next Lauryn Hill?!?

by at . Comments

Shannon Magrane is a tall, All-American girl.

That was how she was portrayed on last night's American Idol audition show, as Ryan Seacrest once again interviewed her World Series-hurling father and once again brought up a certain awkward incident from a few weeks ago.

But can she sing? We think so. While the judges questioned Magrane's song choice a bit, Randy Jackson delivered very high praise in saying Shannon possesses a "Lauryn Hill vibrato." That reference may be lost on younger viewers, but trust us. It's a big compliment.

What did you think of Magrane's performance?
