'American Idol' Judges - Recap of Every Former Panelist!

The fifteenth and final season of American Idol is about to come to an end so we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at all of the past judges the show has had!

Do you remember that Ellen DeGeneres was a judge for one season?! She joined the panel in the middle of season nine and guest judges had to be used for the initial audition rounds.

The show started with a panel that consisted of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson. The final season will end with Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. as the judges.
