Fox Cancels ‘American Idol’
After 14 long seasons, Fox is pulling the plug on the show that brought us Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and Jennifer Hudson. “American Idol’s” 15th season, which is slated to start January 2016, will be its last. The current crop of judges – Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban – are reportedly returning for the final run, which won’t be so much a singing contest as a celebration of its past 14 singing contests. Fox will stage a “season-long celebratory event” in its last season alongside their search for “the final Idol superstar.” Idol winners have combined for a total of 13 Grammys, led by Underwood’s seven. However, the series hasn’t discovered an award winner in nearly a decade.
