American Idol Takes A Trip Down Memory Lane In This Emotional Promo For Its Final Season!

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolNostalgia

So sad!

All good things must come to an end, we suppose.

And sadly, Perezcious readers, American Idol is no exception. The singing competition got the axe from FOX earlier this year, and revealed that this upcoming season will be its last.

On Friday, the network released a new promo for the popular program's 15th season, and it's quite an emotional ride!

The clip starts off with a throwback shot of Kelly Clarkson, the show's first champion, admitting she wants to be "the next American Idol," and segues seamlessly into her performance of A Moment Like This from the night she won the whole thing.

The 33-year-old's debut single continues in the background as a montage of other past winners and famous faces flash across the screen as the video encourages us to "discover an idol one last time."

How heartbreaking!

It shows some of the most iconic moments in show history, sneaks in shots of the upcoming audition crowds, and even gives us a glimpse of ex-judge Simon Cowell!

Take a look at the beginning of the end for this television staple (below)!
