Time to party!

Let's be honest, Carrie Underwood's legs were the real winners on Wednesday night at the CMA Awards — and the country starlet continued to show off her toned gams while taking a spin on a mechanical bull at the after-party.

This was the eighth consecutive year the 32-year-old hosted country music's biggest night alongside pal Brad Paisley — so we definitely can't blame her for letting loose!

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.

Video: Watch Kanye West Audition For Idol!

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)!
