Being a member of the a cappella group Kickshaw for four years after graduating from high school in 1999, Lewis worked with the group on a 10-track album titled Put It In the Microphone but he quit the group in 2002 to become a solo musician going by the stage name Bshorty, which was basically inspired by the nicknames of the members of 311 and "aggressive inline-skate videos during the 1990s", "doing drum and bass shows, and conscious hip hop shows, singer-songwriter stuff, and electronica and hip hop".He made connections with various musicians by performing regularly in many venues in Seattle such as Nectar Lounge in Fremont, Sea Monster Lounge, Lo-Fi Performance Gallery, Jet Deck in Everett (now in Mill Creek) and hosted shows like The Digital Lounge shows at To ST.In an early episode of the United Kingdom edition of American Idol, Lewis recalled his first solo performance in the Hollywood's Week was "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" by The Temptations.When later he sang it in front of the other finalists, Phil Stacey felt that it was the best performance he has seen from Lewis.She loves to pass her time singing at the top of her lungs and writing about the latest news.
He had also rearranged songs including "You Keep Me Hangin' On" and "You Give Love a Bad Name".
After Lewis' performance of "Lovesong" by The Cure/311 on March 27, Paula Abdul said that she would love to see him in the finale.
Cowell further confirmed that Lewis was the front runner of male contestants on American Idol.
Although Lewis' first performance in the semi-final weeks, "Somewhere Only We Know", was pure singing and inspired judges to make comments about his contemporary vibe, his signature performance on the show was probably "You Give Love a Bad Name" by Bon Jovi.
Lewis incorporated a substantial beatboxing component, making the song sound significantly different from its original version.
