I think I just witnessed the greatest song ever performed on American Idol and it was by some 62 year old that goes by the name of General Larry Platt. The song is called “Pants on the Ground” and it’s every bit as catchy as Miley Cyrus’s ultra-addictive “Party in the USA” and arguably just a better overall song.
Check out this Youtube video of him performing it back at the auditions and posted long before tonight’s showing. I guess the guy filmed it and posted it back when the auditions took place cause he knew then it’d be a cult hit as it appears poised to be.
And here’s General Larry Platt doing his thing on the show.
