Blake Lewis brought something different to the sixth season of American Idol: more contemporary song choices and a style of singing that incorporated human beatbox techniques and captured the hearts of America and the runner-up. During the competition, he consistently impressed the judges and American voters with original arrangements of such left-field song choices as the Zombies' 1968 hit "Time of the Season," Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name" and Maroon 5's "She Will Be Loved." His 2007 debut album, Audio Day Dream, reached Number 10 on the Billboard 200. He developed an interest in music and theater in grade school and began beatboxing as a teenager at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, Washington. After graduating from high school in 1999, he joined an a cappella group, Kickshaw; four years later he began pursuing a solo career as Bshorty, a hip-hop and electronica singer and songwriter. Lewis was working on an album when he decided to audition for American Idol on a whim.
Alexis was part of the wave of young female power singers that emerged during Season 8 of American Idol. She earned a golden ticket after wowing the judges with her incredibly potent take on Aretha Franklin's "Doctor Feelgood." During Hollywood Week she tackled Carrie Underwood on the final day to launch her as an eventual finalist. She went back to Aretha for her performance in the semifinals and creamed her female competetion to secure a place in the Top 12. With hot pink tips in her hair, and a cross between Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield in her voice and style, she literally rocked the walls with her rendition of "I Never Loved a Man" and “Dirty Diana”. She attributes her unqiue vocal stylings to the influence of her love for country, rhythm and blues and jazz. Currently, Alexis is a recording artist living in Memphis, Tennessee. She just released a new single, "James Dean" available on iTunes.
Siobhan Magnus (pronunciation: Sha-vawn) is an American rock singer-songwriter from Barnstable, Massachusetts. Siobhan draws from her experiences performing musical theater, jazz, soul, and rock music to deliver a unique stage presence that is all her own. She was an American Idol Finalist on season 9 where she emerged as an early contender on Idol after her interpretation of "Think" originally by Aretha Franklin and "Paint It Black" originally by The Rolling Stones. She is known for being able to carry a note very long and very high, which she crafted at an early age. Magnus' ability to hit those high notes and her dramatic performances drew comparisons to Adam Lambert. Following Idol, Magnus gave several media appearances and performed "House of the Rising Sun" on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and "Paint it Black" on The Late Show with David Letterman. Magnus also visited the If I Can Dream house and sang "I Will Come to You" by Hanson and also "Halo" by Beyoncé. Magnus released her first solo single "Beatrice Dream" on May 1, 2011. Her debut solo album, Moonbaby, was released via Snotface Records in 2012. In 2013, Magnus released her version of the Patti Page classic "Old Cape Cod" on a commemorative 45rpm single as part of her anti-bullying fund raising effort on Cape Cod
