If 'American Idol' has taught us anything, it's that Siobhan Magnus can do no wrong. After weeks of performances, Magnus has yet to deliver a clunker, and tonight was no exception.

Magnus, who was a goth vision in a dark blue dress and black combat boots, gave a dramatic rendition of 'Paint It Black' by the Rolling Stones that started with strings and evolved into an up-tempo song with a piercing, sustained note at the end. For sure, it was dark and exaggerated, but we've come to expect nothing less from Magnus, and the judges ate it up.

For sure, it was dark and exaggerated, but we've come to expect nothing less from Magnus, and the judges ate it up.

Kara DioGuardi drew comparisons between Magnus and another famously theatrical 'American Idol' alum. "I'm having flashbacks of Adam Lambert," she said. "And, I have to say, the best interpretation tonight. You did the most with the song. Most interesting."

Simon Cowell called Magnus' performance the best of the night, but was quick to point out that her dramatics are likely to divide fans. "There are a lot of people who are going to love that, and, genuinely, there's going to be a lot of people who are going to hate it. And that, to me, is actually quite a good place to be, which is better than being indifferent and boring."
