Battle of the American Idol Original Song

1/14/2010 Posted by Mel Got Served 1 comment
Every season, some people decide that another artist's music can't express their true musicality and decides to audition with their own original piece. Most are horrible, but sometimes a catchy gem slips through. Perhaps it's because these original pieces are written by people way over the age cutoff for Idol; though good songwriting surely comes with age.

Last night in the Atlanta auditions for season 9 of American Idol, 62 year old Larry Pratt became an instant sensation with his song, "Pants on the Ground." I love this catchy song, yet it brings me back to fond memories of Renaldo Lapuz's "I Am Your Brother" from season 7 (also way over the age limit). I am now posing to you, my blogging public, one of the greatest questions of all time: which song is better? Below, videoclips for you to regale. Vote now in the comments!
