After nearly 14 years, American Idol will be coming to an end. FOX recently announced that the show will be ending in 2016, making season 15 the last time Ryan Seacrest will ever announce the “winner of American Idol .”

Over the years, the show has discovered an incredible amount of talent including Kelly Clarkson,Carrie Underwood, and Jordin Sparks, and introduced us all to the beloved Simon Cowell. While the judges have changed in the past decade, rotating through artists like Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, the show has continued to find the best undiscovered talent in the country – and we can’t believe it’s ending!

Since the X Factor was canceled in the US last year, it definitely seems like there will be less TV shows for aspiring singers to audition for. Maybe Simon will introduce another singing competition show for us to fall in love with.
