Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has previously showed off his pipes, but a new video posted on American Idol shows he actually auditioned for the singing competition.

In the video, Jones goes to the auditions in Nashville and sings in front of new judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Ritchie. Perry seems to be shocked by Jones' singing voice while Bryan throws him a football after saying "hot route."

It also features host Ryan Seacrest.

It's part of a feature on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown, as they go behind the scenes at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

American Idol will premiere on Sunday, March 11 on ABC.
