Has American Idol been on SO long that the show's alums are now putting their KIDS on the show???
You may remember Nikki McKibbin from the FIRST season of AI! She was the punk princess who came in THIRD place behind Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini.
In fact, you may even remember Nikki's little son Tristen Langley featured on the show back in 2002 handing his momma a rose.
Well, the show is now in its 13th season and he's officially a teenager and the 15-year-old heart out sang his heart out on for judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr. last night with Sublime's Santeria.
So, did he make his mother proud and make the cut?? Find out (above)!!

This…is American Idol’s…worst premiere in 12 seasons!
That’s what Ryan Seacrest’s intro should have been last night! Because the long-running reality series pulled in their lowest audience for a premiere since the show started in 2002!
Gone are the days when AI was the most watched TV show in the country (they hold the record for 8 seasons in a row!), because their ratings are clearly slipping!
Last night’s Season 13 premiere brought in about 15 million viewers, making it the first time that they’ve ever had a first episode with less than 20 million people watching!
What’s the problem, America?! Do you not like Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, or Harry Connick Jr. as your judges?
It’s not exactly all bad news for Idol however. The show did draw around 5 million more viewers than anything else on TV last night. And their ratings are pretty much on par with The Voice’s season 5 premiere back in September.
FOX also points out that for the first time since 2011, American Idol’s premiere ratings actually went up vs. last season’s finale! So perhaps fans who had thrown in the towel on the series are suddenly singing a different tune?
We’ll have to wait and see if the talent they find this year is good enough to keep audiences watching from start to finish!

Whoa!! Things are getting intense on the Ellen show!
The funny talk show and Oscar host had the American Idol judges on her show and after their hilarious interview, they played Ellen's (and our) favorite game of "Heads up!"
Only, this time, there was some innnnneresting charades that J.Lo and her two married male judges, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr., had to act out.
Just watch for yourself (above)!!! Dem acting skills are on fiyah!
