Idology: Shannon Magrane on 'Pageant' Dresses, Hip-Hop Music and J.Lo's Tough Critiques

She might have gotten a somewhat serious edit during her American Idol run, but in a lot of ways, Shannon Magrane is a typically goofy 16-year-old girl.

Season 11’s eleventh-place finisher dropped by Idology HQ to discuss her love of classic soul music, her choice of an obscure Kathy Troccoli ballad for the semifinal rounds, and the horror she felt when she forgot the lyrics to Blu Cantrell’s “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)” during her group performance during Hollywood Week. Plus, Shannon talks about her Flo Rida connection, her decision to scale Mt. Mariah, and Jennifer Lopez’s use of “Sweet Baby.” Press play below for the full Q&A, and for all my Idol news, interviews, and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
