During the Lions' bye week, Detroit Lions' Wide Receiver Marvin Jones Jr. kept busy by showing up on American Idol as more than just a special appearance.

The football player was auditioning for the upcoming season of American Idol and chose the song "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Tank; and it was everything but a tank. The reaction from hosts Lionel Richie and Katy Perry was enough to convince me that he may have gotten that golden ticket to the next round.

Unfortunately ESPN was only able to grab a sneak peak of the performance. The episode won't air until March so we will have to wait and see if he can make it.
