American Idol Series Finale Recap: Did the Right Contestant Win? Plus: TVLine's Series Finale Awards!

7 April 2016 7:06 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kieran, turn out the lights.

Our American Idol “journey” has come to an end, but let us not weep for what’s been cancelled, let us instead go to iTunes and download the Season 15 winner’s new single. Hey, from a songwriting vantage point, it may not be “Home,” but it definitely ranks above “No Boundaries” and “Inside Your Heaven” — and we bought those, too. And if this show can produce one more bona fide radio/touring superstar, maybe the inevitable reboot will happen sooner than expected, no?

Farewell for Now, American Idol, and Thanks for All the Memories

7 April 2016 1:41 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Season 10 of American Idol. Top 4 results night. May 12, 2011.

I remember it vividly, joyfully — but not just because the exceptional Haley Reinhart (who’d been enduring egregious sabotage from judges Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson) improbably survived over rocker dude James Durbin. Mostly, the date is blazed into my memory because of a surprise delivery I’d received a few hours earlier from the New Jersey State Division of Youth and Family Services: Three-month-old foster twins, ridiculously cute boys whom my husband and I had only learned about earlier that morning.

American Idol is ending its 15-season run and alum Chris Daughtry has a lot of feelings about it. "It's coming to an end, man," Daughtry told People at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday.

American Idol Top 8 Performance Recap: Girl, You Earned It

3 March 2016 7:16 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’m not going to kvetch about American Idol failing to reward one of its dozens of worthy grads with a Thursday-night performance slot — there are only six weeks left, after all! — and instead using it to promote the doing-just-fine-already former X Factor judge Demi Lovato
