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.

Mariah Carey performs during a live taping of the 'Live! with Kelly and Michael'

Mariah Carey is keeping it real in a recent interview with Australian KIIS FM hosts Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday. Real nasty, that is! When asked about her time as a judge on American Idol, Mariah bluntly described the show as “so boring and so fake.”As a judge on season 12 of the show along with Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and (on-screen nemesis!) Nicki Minaj, Mariah says she “felt forced to make up stuff about the contestants and their performance to keep the show going,” according to Page Six. 

Adding a halfhearted apology before another insult, Mariah added, “I’m sorry, I just think it’s … when I say it’s fake … I mean like you have to make up things to say about people.” Claiming that, at times, the judges don’t have a whole lot to say about the performers, she explains, “Half the time the performances are good, you just be like ‘it was good’ and you feel like ending it there: ‘You were really good.’”

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!
