    One last Idol! FOX announced on Monday, May 11, that after 13 years, American Idol has finally been canceled. The long-running competition show will be sent off with a final showdown for the country's hottest talent.

    "American Idol will begin its 15th -- and final -- season this January on FOX," the network wrote in a release. "A season-long celebratory event, American Idol XV will feature host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr., as they search for the final Idol superstar and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols."

    Seacrest, 40, has been the one constant in the ever-changing lineup of the singing show. The host made his debut on American Idol's June 2002 premiere, going solo with the second season canning of original cohost Brian Dunkleman.

    The announcement from Fox was made as Idol's 14th season approaches its finale. The latest iteration has seen a continual fall in ratings over recent weeks, and will pit top three Jax, Nick Fradiani, and Clark Beckham against one another for the title of American Idol.

    Previous winners, finalists, and semi-finalists have seen a mixed bag of success over the years, with original Idol Kelly Clarkson topping the charts alongside later competitors such as Oscar winner and 7th runner-up Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia Barrino, runner-up Clay Aiken, and Jordin Sparks, just to name a few.

    In a couple years will people like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood even have "American Idol" attributed to them anymore, I wonder?

    "They called and asked me to leave AGT to go there and bring in viewers. I had a meeting with FOX and pitched them some new ideas, but they didn't want to change things up. That's why they're cancelled now, right Robin? Robin???"

    Dude, it was never even approaching the salmon. That show has sucked donkey balls since before it was on the air here in the US.

    It has - along with the stubbornness of record label honchos, the 1999 rise of Napster, and the general lack of original thought - completely brought down the music industry and reduced it to something we hear at the gym between texting and chatting. Or something that radio programmers put on the air between commercials. Music has ZERO value to just about everyone. Spotify is failing. Soundcloud has merged with the labels to try and stay afloat. 13 year old kids laugh curiously when you mutter the term "compact disc" because they don't have a fucking clue what that shiny thing in grandma's car stereo really does.

    What a shit show the whole industry has become and it's not getting any better.

    Fuck American Idol and while we're at it, fuck all "talent" shows. AGT can suck a limp dick.

    No wonder the guy Howard called a douche got more attention for Howard calling him a douche than being a finalist on American Idol. Even though Howard has fallen off the pop culture map, American Idol has fallen even more.

    This doesn't mean anything. We'll just have a new karaoke competition show to take its place. The Voice, AGT, ect. ect...

    They failed because they didn't have Howard's advice to guide them, if they had only moved the Coke cup so that Jennifer Lopez's tits were more visible they would still be on the air.
