Former exec producer Nigel Lythgoe believes the time was right to pull the plug. He said:

"I'm grateful they decided to pull it. I'm likening it to a heavyweight boxer. You have to know when to quit. You don't want all these young kids coming along and knocking you out and taking all the credit. When you have been such a heavy puncher."

Nigel left the show to create So You Think You Can Dance, which this season adds former Idol judge Paula Abdul to its ranks!

So what does Paula think about the end of an era? She said:

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!

While season 14 will come to an end this week with a win from either Jax, Nick Fradiani, or Clark Beckham (hopefully), we still got 13 years of entertaining television out of the show.

So how should we remember the cultural phenomenon??

The best performances ever? The most successful winners?

Nope!

Jennifer Lopez Redeems Herself After The Met Gala In A Tight Leather & Lace Number!

Jennifer Lopez continues being impossibly hot.

Thank the Lord or whatever higher power for Jennifer Lopez on American Idol!

Her outfits are EVERYTHING!

If the show only existed to showcase J.Lo's clothing rather than raw singing talent, that'd be fine with us! LOLz!

But we're actually serious.

Anyway, the singer slash actress slash mogul looked hotter than she did in her dragon dress at the Met Gala in a beige leather dress with laces along the hips, waist, and sleeves during AI filming on Wednesday.

Also we love the top bun with the rest of her hair flowing over her shoulders. It's giving us futuristic alien vibes for some reason.

What kind of flawlessness?! We'll never be worthy!

Jennifer Lopez is bootylicious at American Idol.

Jennifer Lopez is miraculous!

Look at that body! Twenty years into her career and we're still mesmerized by it!

The original Booty Queen was spotted in a gloriously skintight Emanuel Ungaro ensemble while filming American Idol on Wednesday.

Those print leggings were like a second layer of epidermis!

She's all the squat and leg lift and lunge inspiration we will EVER need!

Excuse us while we run to the gym!

But if we may, we will say that her ponytail was way less polished than we're used to seeing from her, and we're pretty sure it was held up by a scrunchie.

Other than that everything was A+!

P.S. Check out her flawless face in this selfie:
