TMZ.com is reporting that “General” Larry Platt is taking his “Pants on the Ground” phenomenon to Las Vegas. Platt, who made national news when he sang “Pants on the Ground” on “American Idol,” is scheduled to perform his song at the Mirage Hotel this weekend.
Throughout this legislative session, the Capitol has welcomed soldiers, Boy Scouts and police officers to come speak before the House or the Senate. On the 19th day, they honored General Larry Platt, the civil rights warrior-turned “American Idol” star for his socially conscious tune, "Pants on the Ground."
America became acquainted with Larry Platt Tuesday night, but the “Pants on the Ground” singer has been an Atlanta fixture for years. He’s also apparently a veteran of the Civil Rights Movement who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Click here for details.
