American Idol enters its 15th - and farewell - season.
A season-long celebratory event, the farewell season will feature host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr., as they discover an Idol one last time, and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of contestants and the millions of fans who phoned, tweeted, texted and championed their favourites.
All former judges, including the original panel that consisted of Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, and Randy Jackson are all confirmed to make an appearance sometime in the season.
American Idol is produced by FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment, a division of CORE Media Group. The series was created by Simon Fuller.
