Former American Idol star's son competes in new season

Teenager Tristen Langley is making history on the new season of American Idol by becoming the first second generation hopeful on the TV talent show - he's the son of former finalist Nikki Mckibbin.

Nikki McKibbin finished third behind Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini on the first season of the show in 2002, and now her 15-year-old son has been given a chance to become star.

Langley appeared on Thursday night's (16Jan14) taped audition show, which also featured his proud mom, and won a place in the Hollywood round of the series.
