General Larry Platt, Pants on the Ground, Highlight American Idol in Atlanta

by at . Comments

Last year, there was Bikini Girl.

This year, there's General Larry Platt.

Each season, American Idol airs the audition of an outlandish contestant that gets cataputed into the spotlight for approximately 15 minutes. Rarely is that individual 62 years old and singing about his pants on the ground, however.

But that's exactly what took place in Atlanta last night, as a man that referred to himself as "General Larry Platt" (pictured) caused the judges to crack up with a single that included the lyrics:

Pants on the ground
Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground
With the gold in your mouth, hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground, call yourself a cool cat
Lookin’ like a fool, walkin’ to the town
With your pants on the ground!

Is it wrong that the show ended the episode with this man, as opposed to one of the truly talented singers that received a ticket to Hollywood, such as Keia Johnson, Jermaine Sellers, Mallorie Haley, Bryan Walker? Nah, it's just American Idol!

Visit our friends at TV Fanatic full a detailed rundown of the evening - and watch the General's performance of "Pants on the Ground" below.

I think it's great the show ended this way. Shows they all have a sense of humor and he made a cute ditty about what most of us REALLY think about those boys with their pants on the ground.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
