Say it ain’t so!
American Idol will be coming to end after its 15th season.
On Monday, Fox announced that the singing competition was renewed one more time and will see the return of Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. as the final roster of judges — as well as the return of Ryan Seacrest as host.
But that will be the end!
Sources state that this season will be:
“[A] season-long celebratory event.”
Color us excited! We can only imagine the long list of past Idol winners and contestants who will be brought back into the spotlight.
Though we aren’t 100% surprised that the hit show has come to a close. The reality show may’ve returned to normalcy these past few seasons — but it seems it never regained the juggernaut status it once had.
Reportedly, this season only averaged a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.7 million viewers during Wednesday episodes. Not quite the 30 million views they once had!
It’s been a good run, Idol. We’ll cherish this time we’ve got left with you!
