Shaun Kraisman, who looks like Ryan Seacrest and apparently deliberately talks and dresses like him, is singing next on "American Idol." The judges have some fun with him. Ryan comes in and they play around for a while. It's like the Max Headroom version of Ryan.

He sings "Oh Girl,"and he's loud, but not very good. "As a singer, no, but personality is over the top," says Steven Tyler.

Shannon Magrane, who's 16 and tells us she's 6-feet tall and has a size 11 shoe, comes in next. Her dad pitched for the Cardinals. She winds up bringing in her whole family. It's like this long line of girls, and then her dad at the end. 

Sweet people, a lot of fun -- Tyler of course tells her she's hot, in front of her mom and dad.

Belts out "Something's Got a Hold on Me," with her whole family right behind her. She's got some serious stage presence. It's enjoyable. She doesn't have an amazing voice, but has a great personality.

As Randy Jackson points out, she's got "nerves of steel" to do that in front of her whole family.
