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)!

Well that didn't take very long.

When the only American on the panel for America's Got Talent announced that he would not be returning for Season 11, we were curious to see who would be his replacement.

And while Howard Stern is certainly a character, AGT managed to get an even bigger name in reality TV judging… Simon Cowell!

Despite the fact that American Idol is about to air its final season next year on FOX, Simon will be lending his talents to NBC for 2016 instead.

The 56-year-old will join Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel as the fourth judge alongside host Nick Cannon.

Simon Cowell Gives Louis Tomlinson Parenting Advice & We Couldn't Agree More With It!

simon cowell advises louis tomlinson fatherhood


It looks like Simon Cowell is mentoring Louis Tomlinson on more than the music industry.

In a recent interview, the X Factor judge revealed that he dished out some parenting advice to the One Direction star — that he follows in his daily life.

He shared:

"I just said, 'Enjoy it.' If I had been his age and someone had said, 'You're going to have a baby,' I'm not sure how I would have coped with it. But he did call me and I said, 'When you've embraced it, you'll be amazed how much you are going to love it. It will change your life for the better.'"

We're not sure what we love more, Simon's advice or the fact that the heartthrob still turns to the TV personality for advice!

As we previously reported, the-23-year-old confirmed he was expecting a baby with Briana Jungwirth back in August.

However, the 56-year-old noted that if he could become accustomed to being a proud papa then the British cutie will do just fine.

On first becoming a parent, he explained:
