FOX's

American Idol has come to an end… for now… and I, for one, am sad. Last night, Trent Harmon was named the Season 15 winner, and the “bookend” to Kelly Clarkson. Today, both Trent and La’Porsha Renae signed major record deals, however. Both well deserved.

As an American Idol super fan (and I’m not ashamed to admit it), I loved every minute of the finale, though I did feel a little bad for this season’s finalists, who were reduced to singing backup and rolling a gift for Ryan Seacrest onto the stage. Instead of the usual finalist & artist pairings, we were treated to non-stop performances by past American Idol contestants, including Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and more. Sadly, a very pregnant Kelly wasn’t able to attend, but she did pre-tape a medley of her greatest hits, ending with an acappella “A Moment Like This.”

Notably missing (to me anyway) were Adam Lambert, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams, Crystal Bowersox, and a mention of late Michael Johns. But, still, it was a great two hours of television. That I may or may not have watched twice already. 😉 Look below for pictures from the American Idol series finale.

Forgive me, but I didn't realize that American Idol was still going to be churning out seasons.  I used to be addicted to the original talent showcase…and not just for the crazy first round auditions.  On that note, do we know what William Hung is doing right now?

Once the show started trading out judges like Housewives trade out Hermes bags and cocktails, it seemed to be on a constant decline.  My dawg Randy Jackson, the only original judge remaining, decided to cut his losses after the most recent season, and his counterparts have been quitting left and right.  Keith Urban appears to be the only one who has any interest remaining on the sinking ship.  

However–and I never saw this coming–there are loud rumblings that the show is in talks to bring back a former judge who I'd actually tune in to see.  I never gave much thought to Jenny from the Block, but I'll readily admit that I really enjoyed Jennifer Lopez on Idol.  If she returns to judging, maybe I'll return to watching!

Call Me Crazy A Five Film Premiere

Wow! Is American Idol really aiming for an all-alumni judging panel? This crazy – crazy good? crazy bad? not sure yet! – rumor seems to be true, and Jennifer Hudson is reportedly the first one to sign on the dotted line. 

E! News reports that Jennifer will judge season 13 of American Idol with two other former contestants. Sources claim that producers want Kelly Clarkson, who is purportedly thisclose to accepting the gig, and either Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken.

Kelly Clarkson

While American Idol might be struggling to maintain its desired ratings, Idol's past contestants certainly aren't struggling to maintain their cash money. 

Forbes recently released its list of top American Idol earners from 2012. 

Kelly Clarkson tops the list – moving up from fifth place in 2011 – with $8 million in earnings. Kelly can thank her "gold" album Stronger, appearances on The Voice, Toyota commercial, and successful tour for her success. 

Kelly stole the number one spot away from Carrie Underwood. This year, Carrie shares the number two spot with Chris Daughtry's band Daughtry – with $5 million in earnings. Forbes reports that Carrie and Chris each earn six figures for one single concert. It must be nice to be an American Idol!
