general larry idol 'American Idol': 'Pants on the Ground' unites General Larry Platt and William HungEvery year, “American Idol” begins with an array of auditions, and not all of the hopefuls are memorable because of their talent. The May 26 Season 9 finale saw the return of General Larry Platt, a 63-year-old civil rights activist who reprised his original “Pants on the Ground” from auditions in Atlanta.

Platt was joined in the finale by another familiar face from past “Idol” auditions: William Hung. Who could forget Hung’s rendition of “She Bangs,” or his subsequent album “Inspiration”? It’s only appropriate that these two join up on Simon Cowell‘s final night as an “American Idol” judge.

The performance will certainly go down in “Idol” history. Platt and Hung were joined by dancers who happily dropped their jeans on stage. Platt himself was surprisingly light on his feet, especially considering the fact that he’s 63 years old. We’d like to nominate him for the next season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
