Season 9 Preview: The Boston Edition: Luke Shaffer

Wow! I for one was pleasantly surprised at how accurate the spoilers were for Season 9. I half expected people to be spamming the spoiler lists to get attention for their bands or just for laughs. So, congrats to IDF and other spoiler mongers for doing such a great job.

So far, we’ve previewed 35 people and posted links to other blogs doing the same thing for a total of 50. Some of those contestants auditioned in Boston. I thought it would be interesting to round up those contestants and see what else we can find out about them.

Contestant previews after the jump.

A WGWG! He’s good. He can do covers with an original flair. He’ll also get the female fans. Can he stand out in a crowded field? His audition was pretty impressive last night.

BTW according to one of the spoilers, he was actually the last person to audition the first day in Boston.
