The world’s biggest talent search is coming to an end *sobs*. But, in honour of American Idol and its 15 seasons of stars, we have put together a playlist over on Spotify chock full of TUNES, so you can relive the glory days.
It includes every winner of the show, from its humble beginnings crowning Kelly Clarkson as the inaugural champ to the most recent Idol, Nick Fradiani. The winners aren’t the only contestants who make an appearance here, though. Some of the singers who didn’t get snatch the crown, like Jennifer Hudson and Adam Lambert, have gone on to become multi-million recording artists all over the globe, and have more than earned their place in the show’s history. Judges past and present, like Paula Abdul and Jennifer Lopez (above, with Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr and host Ryan Seacrest) also made it onto our list.
The finale of American Idol will take place this Thursday, April 7 in Hollywood and includes performances from Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.
