People from all walks of life audition for shows like American Idol. Most of them are just normal folks with a secret passion for singing or whatever. There are lawyers, doctors, waitresses, and s whole lot of students. But what I’m sure is probably a first on American Idol there is a professional football player auditioning for this season.
Marvin Jones is a wide receiver who plays for the Detroit Lions. He decided to audition for American Idol because, why not? He went to the Nashville auditions and, from the looks of his audition in the above clip, he probably made it through. I can’t imagine he didn’t. Who knew a dude who tackles people for a living could sing so well. He probably serenaded the other Lions in the communal showers.
I made me think about Esera Tuaolo on The Voice. He was a football player with a golden voice as well. He’s not continuing but he made it to the playoffs. That’s something.
