The Last Season of American Idol Begins Tonight

American Idol will begin its 15th and final season tonight and tomorrow at 8/7c on FOX.


Judges Harry Connick, Jr., Keith Urban, and Jennifer Lopez return once again to scout the finest talent from across America, with auditions being held in Denver, Savannah, Philadelphia, Little Rock, and San Francisco.

Former judges will also return to celebrate the final season, including the original trio of Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Paula Abdul.

While Idol has produced a slew of stars across multiple genres, among them Grammy winners, it's unfortunate to see the once wildly popular singing competition, which pulled in over 30 million viewers at the height of its popularity, come to an end. However, the excitement still exists in finding the next "American Idol." And who knows, this season might be the best of all.
