“We just always did our best,” he said about living with Hadid’s illness, while talking to Et at the Grammy Museum’s third annual gala at The Novo in Los Angeles, California, on Tuesday. “We had some other issues as well, but everybody’s in a good place now. The main thing is that she’s healthy and in remission. She worked really hard at it and now she’s reaping the rewards of that.”

Many have uttered some variation of those words in the weeks leading up to “American Idol’s” finale, but tonight — the night of the singing competition’s last episode — it was President Barack Obama, himself, who made the declaration to kick off the night, a sign of the show’s historic influence over the past 15 years.
The live show at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Calif., which led up to the final moment of crowning the last winner, felt more like a two-hour celebration of the show, rather than a showcase of one particular individual. (Find out who the winner is here.)
Following Obama’s taped segment, a less familiar face graced the stage: Brian Dunkleman, who co-hosted the first season of “Idol” along with Ryan Seacrest.
“I just wanted to stop by and congratulate the show for struggling along another 14 seasons without me,” Dunkleman cracked,
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.

The last-ever performance show will then air April 6 at 8 pm, leading up to Idol‘s swan song the following night.
It was a packed night for judges Harry Connick Jr., Keith Urban and especially for Jennifer Lopez, who performed her new single “I Luh Ya Papi.” Lopez took over the Idol stage with giant fake brick walls covered in graffiti that proudly declared Lopez was performing in “The Bronx.”
The number started with J-Lo sitting on the stoop with her backup singers, American Idol alums Pia Toscano, Jessica Sanchez and Allison Iraheta. They engaged in some playful banter about the male contestants on this season’s Idol before kicking off the song a cappella.
For Thursday’s Tastemakers Showcase, Harry invited Royal Teeth, a band from New Orleans, to perform their single “Wild.”

But, now onto the elimination
Ultimately, despite a strong "save me" performance, the judges declined to use their save on Mk Nobilette.
At this point in the season we're familiar with the machinations of the results show. Results, performance, more results, another performance, more results, decision time. Top 10 week was no different.
The first group called to learn their fates was Malaya, Dexter and Jessica. Dexter got a special video message from Florida Georgia Line, whose song "Cruise" he performed last night, but unfortunately that was the only good news Ryan Seacrest had for him and he was sent to the bottom.

Twelve seasons in, the Hollywood rounds of American Idol remain the most underrated part of the show and maybe the entire reality-competition genre.
