Wow, it’s the end of a music competition era!

Great news, Fans — Fox announced this morning that all three current American Idol judges (Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick, Jr.) will be back for the long-running show’s next season. In surprising/not surprising news, however, Fox also announced that this will be Idol’s final season.

From The Hollywood Reporter:


The network did not mince words in its announcement of the renewal, confirming No. 15 would be the last for the one-time behemoth and referring to it as a “season-long celebratory event.” It’s been expected for some time that this renewal would be Idol’s last, as the show has seen both its ratings and relevance fade in an increasingly crowded landscape. 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.

I haven’t watched American Idol on a regular basis since Adam Lambert lost out to Kris Allen way back in 2009, but it still makes me a little sad to see the show go.
