larry platt 320 'American Idol': General Larry Platt has his 'pants on the ground'“American Idol” got a little silly tonight with its “pants on the ground” — and we loved it.

This might possibly be the funniest thing we’ve ever seen on “American Idol.” Normally we are simply annoyed by the bad auditions but how can you not love a 62 year-old man named General Larry Platt dancing while he sings his song “Pants on the Ground?”

The judges were going bananas and Larry, bless his heart, was going 110% while basically repeating “Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground.”

We predict it debuts at #12 on the Nielsen Soundscan singles charts in a couple weeks. Also, if Larry is not back to perform for the finale in May, we are going to be severely disappointed.
