End Of A TV Era: ‘American Idol’ Vows ‘Spectacular’ Finale

“American Idol,” which gave the world Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson, has one more chance to mint a star before it fades into TV and music history.
Whether viewers choose a future chart-topper or trivia question remains to be seen. But executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, who helped translate Britain’s “Pop Idol” into the Fox version that debuted in 2002, said the farewell episode will be memorable.
“It’s going to be a rather spectacular show,” Lythgoe promised, with all the former winners on hand along with past contestants and “other surprises” in the two-hour finale…

…Lythgoe, who exited the series in 2013, returned to produce the concluding night’s broadcast.
Clarkson, the inaugural “Idol,” is set to perform, as are Underwood and the other winners including Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Jordin Sparks and Scotty McCreery. Among the many contestants taking part: Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Elliott Yamin and LaToya London…

…Before the finale, Fox is stoking nostalgia with “American Idol: American Dream,” a 90-minute special airing at 8 p.m. EDT Tuesday, April 5. Host Ryan Seacrest, original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson and former contestants will be among those reminiscing and sharing insider tidbits…

  1. April 5th is a special day for me, and seeing Clay on American Idol will be my celebration! The two nights after will be a treat, too!

  2. Looking forward to seeing Clay on the Finale. I haven't watched AI since 2003. I found my Idol!!!!! Also, thanks Musicfan for the video of Clay singing "To Love Somebody"….loved that one..(actually…love them all). I remember when Clay was skating, and I thought it was so brave of him to do that…especially at intermission at the hockey game…Singing while skating….yikes….He did very well though.

  3. I have to agree with Simon. Clay's version of To Love Somebody is one of the best Idol performances up to that point. But wait… then came Solitaire & Bridge Over Troubled Waters! As for my favorite skater, that would have to be Clay on ice.

  4. i will indeedd be watching idol to see clay sing on the finale of americian idol along with other idol singers that will be there
