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!

We don't know if we believe this…

Taylor Swift may not be 100% country anymore, but that doesn't mean she doesn't owe her fame to her original southern twang!

Tay Tay first made a name for herself back in 2006 with her debut single Tim Megraw, but now one celebrity is claiming that he actually first discovered the 25-year-old.

While we were under the assumption that Scott Borchetta found and signed Taylor, Jason Alexander recently revealed that he put T-Swift on the map when he cast her in one of his music videos!

Jason apparently starred in and directed Brad Paisley's 2007 hit Online and put Taylor and Kellie Pickler in the vid as extras.

Since Taylor already had a radio-friendly track on her hands by that point, we think she was well on her way to super-stardom… but the publicity couldn't have hurt!

Ch-ch-check out Taylor play backup to Brad and Jason (below)!!!

After the whole hacking incident, Sony isn't messing around!

Last year, a lawsuit was filed against Sony Music by 19 Recordings — the record label founded by American Idol creator Simon Fuller – which reps artists like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Clay Aiken.

The label claimed they weren't being appropriately compensated by their distributor, explaining that Sony was robbing Idol stars of their money through tricky accounting and streaming services like Spotify!

Ow, ow!!

The plunging necklines were not lacking at the CMT Music Awards tonight!
