That night, a spokesperson for the music mogul's family released this statement:

"Today our beloved mum Julie passed away. Anyone who had met her would know what a truly special and kind lady she was. We are heartbroken and will miss her terribly, but she is now at peace."

The spokesperson also continued that the family is hoping for some privacy during this trying time, saying:

In Honor Of American Idol's Cancellation — Take A Look Back At The Show's 10 Worst Auditions Of All Time!

no title

It's the end of an era.

Despite being the No. 1 television show in the country for eight years in a row, FOX made the huge announcement on Monday that American Idol would be ending after its 15th season in 2016.

The reality singing competition has been going downhill since 2012, but this lousy season was the final nail in the show's coffin.

Even though Nicki Minaj and Simon Cowell were the only good judges AI ever had, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick, Jr. will be returning along with Ryan Seacrest one last time.

If it is broke, don't fix it!

So how should we remember the cultural phenomenon??

The best performances ever? The most successful winners?
