Nikki McKibbin's Son Auditions on "American Idol"



Get ready to feel reallllllly old -- because one of the Season One "American Idol" contestants has a kid who's old enough to audition for the show now!

Nikki McKibbin, who placed third on the Fox show way back in 2002, made a surprise appearance on last night's episode.

And she brought her 15-year-old son with her!

Fans of the show may actually recognize Tristen. He actually appeared on the show back in the day too, giving his mom a rose after one of her performances when he was only 4.

Jennifer Lopez recognized the now-35-year-old -- or at least pretended to -- and ended up giving her son a pass to Hollywood after his performance of Sublime's "Santeria."

While Harry Connick Jr. wasn't impressed, saying it "wouldn't work for me" if he had showed up without a semi-famous mother, Keith Urban liked him enough to send him to Hollywood.

Since her time on the show, Nikki would go on to appear on "Fear Factor" and "Celebrity Rehab." She also formed the band Wicked and has opened for Warrant.

Check out the gallery below to find out what happened to everyone else from Season One -- and see what they all look like now!
