16 of 31: Blake Lewis made a name for himself on 'American Idol' as a colorful performer with the ability to beatbox, but ultimately came in second place on the singing competition show.

After losing the title to Jordin Sparks, Lewis went onto his own recording career, releasing two studio albums that included 'Audio Day Dream' in 2007 and 'Heartbreak On Vinyl' in 2009. In addition to his solo albums, Lewis has found success on the dance music scene and has toured the country as a DJ, spinning at various charity events, Pride festivals and numerous other shows.
