It's hard to believe, but American Idol has been on the air so long that there is already a second generation of American Idol auditioners. Nikki McKibbin was Season 1's third place finalist, and her son auditioned for Idol this year! Little Tristen Langley is all grown up at 15 years old. He made his American Idol debut in 2002 when he gave his mom a rose on stage after her performance. Nikki stood in on his audition and mouthed the lyrics of "Santeria" as her son sang and strummed. "Dr. No," aka Harry, said Tristen isn't ready, but Jennifer and Keith want to see more of Tristen in Hollywood. Due to Tristen's age, he'll need his mom to accompany him on this journey, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of first-hand advice he gets along the way.
