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” toKelly 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.”
Simon Cowell will be taking over Howard Stern’s position as a judge on America’s Got Talent!
Simon, an executive producer for the show, who also judges Britain’s Got Talent (the UK version of AGT), shared that he and NBC had been “talking about” him joining the judges panel for years, but it never panned out. Now the timing seems right! “This year … everything worked so it was perfect.”
Howard is said to be leaving to focus on his radio show and other possible television opportunities.

My mind is blown. I cannot believe how many reality TV stars welcomed babies this year.
Snooki & JWoww star Jenni Farley gave birth to her first child in July. “She is here!” proud daddy Roger Mathews shared on Twitter. “Meilani Alexandra Mathews, 7 lbs, 13 ounces. Words can’t describe what looking into your child’s eyes can do to you. I’m humbled.”
