The talent show contestant has already racked up more than 5 million hits on YouTube with his rap called "Pants on the Ground".
In the "American Idol" audition, Platt raps about encouraging young teens to pull up their baggy pants instead of having them hang low around the waist.
The audition turned most of the judges to laughter, but Simon Cowell spotted Platt's potential for fame.
"I have a horrible feeling that song could be a hit," American Idol judge Simon Cowell said.
Platt seems to be working his 15 minutes of fame - he already has been offered a record contract and was appointed the mascot for the Minnesota Vikings last week.
We want to know what you think.
Could Larry Platt become 2010's version of Susan Boyle? Will his burst of fame turn into millions? Do you think his message will get across to young people?
