I can’t believe that after the end of it’s 15th season this year, producers at ‘American Idol‘ are finally going to pull the plug!
FOX said in a press release, “American Idol will begin its 15th — and final — season this January on FOX. A season-long celebratory event, American Idol XV will feature host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr., as they search for the final Idol superstar and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols.”
The FOX reality singing completion, that was the brain child of Simon Cowell and Simon Fuller, launched the careers of many of our favorite artists like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phillips, Chris Daughtry and many more.
We saw a slew of different judges starting with Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, to Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Keith Urban, Ellen DeGeneres, Kara DiaGuardi, Harry Connick Jr, as well as Mariah Carey, and Nicki Minaj. Oh, and don’t forget this is where we first met Ryan Seacrest who has remained the host for all 15 seasons…unlike Brian Dunkleman who got let go after season 1.
Are you sad to see ‘Idol‘ go or do you think it was time?
