'American Idol' to End After Season 15 in 2016

American Idol is officially coming to an end in 2016!

Fox announced Monday (May 11) that the fifteenth and final season will premiere January 2016, and that current judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. will all return with it, as will long-running host Ryan Seacrest.

The current season has generated stronger critical favor but only averaged a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.7 million viewers on Wednesday nights.

Fox promises the final edition will be “a season-long celebratory event (that will) pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols.”

    im actually sad to see this go. but i truly believe the show drove itself to the ground. too many format changes. i dont know why they couldnt just stick with their original formula?

  • damian gonzales

    finally canceled that shit “program” that is useless.

  • Invitado

    That untalented ghetto s l u t J-LOW should never be on a show judging people who are more talented than she is. She wears nice weaves though.

    Hiring the can’t sing a note classless JHO Bag was a huge mistake. Its hilarious that she has zero talent, but is judging others with talent. Hysterical!
