Season 9 Preview: Blake Marvin, Sean Michael Butler

Hollywood week is in full swing and we are already finding out who got cut. Actually, by now, they’ve probably winnowed the contestants down to about a third of their original number. We should continue to hear spoilers leak over the next while.

In order to help introduce the Idols to the fans, American Idol has put up little interview packages for each one (although there are a few missing): Golden Tickets Interview. They did this last year, too, but the videos are more lengthy and informative this year. There is also a tab for Memorable Auditions.

Let’s get back to previewing contestants.

Number 39: Blake Marvin
(new to the spoiler list)
Style: Pop/Rock
Age: 23
Hometown: Lone Tree, Colorado

Number 40: Sean Michael Butler
Hometown: Chicago, IL
Style: R&B/Jazz

Usual Disclaimer: Remember, that the Hollywood round doesn’t occur until this week this year. We don’t know how far any of these contestants might go. And since we never see some of the competition round contestants until the competition starts, we might never see some of these people. We might have even found the wrong person with the same name.

IDK. Has this guy already been cut or are the rules different this year? (check out his youtube history). Anyway, he’s good looking enough, his voice is smooth and he’d bring a bit of a country vibe. I could see him filling a slot on the show (unless somebody else filled that slot already).

The sound on his youtube videos isn’t great, but I think I hear a good voice beneath all the crowd noise. Sean fills a niche that hasn’t been filled for a while on Idol, so he could be cast to fill that slot. He’s from Chicago, so he may appear on next week’s audition episode so we’ll get a better idea.
