American Idol, the cultural phenomenon that changed the face of television and created some of today’s biggest music stars, kicked off a three-night Grand Finale week yesterday, April 5th.
The farewell season of American Idol celebrated the end of an era with a special honoring past Idol moments and stars. The special brought back original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. The special revisited Kelly Clarkson’s original audition, and Abdul, Cowell, and Jackson all recalled how impressed they were in that moment. She was the American Idol winner in the first season and remains one of the series’ most influential artists. We hope the farewell season winner will make us proud and they can be as successful as Clarkson.
The two-part finale kicks off Wednesday night with an elimination based on last week’s voting and performances from the top two contestants. Tune in tonight to see who the top two will be and tune in tomorrow to see the last American Idol. Who do you think will win?
