Ryan Seacrest wasn't the only familiar face from American Idol 's past on Thursday night's episode. Things came full circle during the show's audtions in Texas when former contestant, Nikki McKibbin, from the show's first season turned up with her 15 year-old son, Tristan Langley, for his very own Idol audition.

McKibbin competed in Idol's premiere season where she finished in the top three contestants alongside Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini. Langley also appeared on the first season of Idol, when he handed his mom a rose following her performance in one of the final rounds. Adorable, right?

Well, now that we know what Nikki and little Tristan have been up to (obviously training hard for his own trip to the Idol Top 3) let's remember fondly the top 10 contestants from American Idol's first season.
