'American Idol' Judges Ranked By Who Appeared on the Most Seasons (Including Several Judges You Probably Forgot About!)

There have been 22 seasons of American Idol so far (including the one airing right now on ABC) and throughout those two decades, there have been 14 different people who have sat behind the judges table.

The longest reign in the judges chair is 12 seasons while three different judges only appeared on one season. We bet you totally forgot that some of these people were even on the show!

Another fun fact is that only three seasons of American Idol have had four judges while the other 17 seasons all had just three judges.

One thing that has remained constant throughout all 22 seasons is that Ryan Seacrest has been the host every single year. The first season he co-hosted with Brian Dunkleman and then he was a solo host for the remaining 19 seasons.

The Richest Female Pop Stars of the '00s, Ranked by Net Worth (No. 1 has the Lead by $600 Million!)

It’s a safe bet that everyone can easily name their favorite female pop star from the golden age of music in the ’00s. But do you also know who is the wealthiest?

Pop music soared to new heights as we moved into a new millennium in 2000, and we were introduced to an entirely new generation of stars.

Some of the musicians who defined the ’00s started laying a groundwork in the ’90s or even earlier. However, others were just getting started and have taken us on exciting journeys.

Of course, many of them are also still churning out amazing content all the way into 2024, and they don’t show signs of slowing down.

Music is a lucrative career, and that is evident when looking at the net worth of these musicians.

Curious to see just how much they have earned?

With the start of the 2024 Coachella Music Festival, which sees the reunion of Gwen Stefanie‘s No Doubt, we decided to take a stroll down memory lane. We rounded up some of the most prominent names from the ’00s and ranked them based on their estimated net worth.

What did we learn? Several pop stars of the era are members of the billionaire’s club today, and they’ve all amassed impressive fortunes. However, the top earner still beats out her closest competitor by about $600 million!
