Like mother, like son? 'American Idol' alum Nikki McKibbin brings kid to audition
Just when we thought our American Idol addiction was a thing of the past (where have you gone, Elliott "Amish Leprechaun" Yamin?), we're totally getting seduced and sucked into Season 13, which debuted last week. First there was that knee-slapping revelation otherwise known as new judge Harry Connick Jr. Now comes the feel-good story of Season One third-place finisher Nikki McKibbin (who nipped at the heels of Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini) bringing her 15-year-old son, Tristen Langley, to the Austin auditions. Did Nikki's boy make the cut? Is he going to Hollywood? Watch the video for the all the throwback awesomeness. AI's audition rounds continue this Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
