It’s the final night of “American Idol” and our favorite contestant Siobhan Magnus will be back on stage performing with her Idol mates, a tradition that is upheld on every finale.
Magnus, 20 and from Cape Cod, will take the stage but what she will sing is a surprise.
It won’t be a solo performance though – as much as we would like to hear those savage chops again- but a combined effort with the other former contestants.
"She did say she has another surprise in store for her dad," Magnus' mother, Colleen, told the Cape Cod Times.
"I know that she's very excited," the proud mother said, adding she and her husband, Alan, likely will be near home for the finale.
"I haven't gotten to talk to her too much because she's really busy and she's not giving away any secrets about the show."
Magnus returned to Cape Cod two weeks ago but it’s been all go.
"When she did come home, she had interviews and things, so she hasn't really had much time to relax," Colleen Magnus said.
Although it would have been a pleasure to vote for Magnus in tonight’s final the two contenders for the title deserve to be where they are.
Crystal Bowersocks is unique, sounds great and has an upbeat and funky personality.
Lee DeWyze is on the quieter side but sure knows how to blow out a good tune.
It’s going to be a tough decision tonight.
DeWyze's uncle, Tom Donahue, said he has been in contact with his nephew a few times over the past month. "Sometimes he can't believe what's happening to him, but I think he's really enjoying it," he said.
About DeWyze’s not so hot performance’s last night, Donahue said, "It wasn't one of his better nights, but I think he got better with each song," Donahue said. "I think he's got a real shot. I think people underestimated his fan base."
Whoever is crowed the winner of Season Nine’s show it will be all work and no play.
The winner and the former nine contestants get ready to travel America with their tour, which runs from July 1 through to September 19.
