American Idol
Magnus auditioned for American Idol in the summer of 2009 in Boston, and was one of two Massachusetts contestants to make the semi-finals of the show. Siobhan has exposed a lot of her vocal abilities on Idol, often displaying very high notes and a wide vocal range. She is renowned for her unique take on classic songs, such as "Think" by Aretha Franklin and "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones. Some of her rock singing techniques have been met with critique by Simon Cowell. On April 20, Magnus sang the song "When You Believe", a duet between Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, but the judges criticized her fashion sense and general lack of direction. On the top 6 night, when she sang "Any Man of Mine", judge Kara DioGuardi told her that "she was back!" Despite praise from the judges for her performance, Magnus was eliminated the next day.

On the final ten show, it was revealed that she would be a participant in the summer tour.
Magnus is currently the only contestant from the state of Massachusetts to become a finalist in American Idol history.

Like many contestants before her, Siobhan Magnus was never reported to be in the Bottom 3 until the night of her elimination.
