“General Larry Platt has an energy about him that is infectious,” Thomas said in a press release. “We’d love to work with Mr. Platt to generate some exposure for his original song, but also the causes that he holds near and dear to him.”
Platt has taken the nation by storm. Video clips of his ”Pants on the Ground” performance has made him an instant internet hit, and he has also performed on ”The View”, singing and dancing his way into the hearts of America.
The age limit for Idol contestants is 28, and though Platt is too old to compete as a contestant, he was allowed to audition. During his audition, he floored judge Randy Jackson, and left Simon Cowell speachless with his unusual song and dance antics, which also included a split at the end. Guest judge Mary J. Blige was also amused.
