'American Idol': Aaron Kelly's dream theme is original songs

aaron-kelly-american-idol-top-12.jpg Aaron Kelly was perhaps a surprise inclusion in the "American Idol" Top 12, but he couldn't be more thrilled.

"I feel very excited to be walking the blue carpet, surrounded by all these great contestants and great people," the 16-year-old tells Zap2it.

Aaron is also excited to put his own mark on the Rolling Stones this week. "It can be a rock song, but you can give your own spin to it."

When pressed for a "dream theme," Aaron surprised us by saying he'd like to do original songs because "with music, you get to express yourself on a different level." We didn't actually know he wrote music. That would certainly be an interesting "Idol" theme.
