We still can’t believe it, but after 15 seasons, ‘American Idol’ will crown its very last winner at the close of tonight’s big finale. But even though it’s ending, the show will never be forgotten. And that’s all thanks to the amazing performances by some of our favorite idols!
In honor of the American Idol series finale airing on April 7, we thought it’d be a great idea to revisit some of the best and most memorable performances from all 15 seasons of the show! Watch them below.
1. Kelly Clarkson — “(You Make Me Feel) Like A Natural Woman”
Kelly Clarkson is the original American Idol, but she didn’t become the frontrunner until she sang this song.
2. Fantasia — “Summertime”
Fantasia Barrino may have slayed her winner’s song, “I Believe,” but she’ll always be known for her rendition of “Summertime.” It was fantastic!
3. Adam Lambert — “Mad World”
Adam Lambert got a standing ovation by all four judges after his epic performance.
4. Jordin Sparks — “I Who Have Nothing”
Over the years, many people have performed this song, but Jordin Sparks‘ rendition was the best we ever heard.
5. Carrie Underwood — “Alone”
With this performance, Carrie Underwood proved that she could sing just about anything and it’d sound amazing.
6. Katharine McPhee — “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”
If there’s ever a remake of The Wizard of Oz, Katharine McPhee should play Dorothy.
7. Kelly Clarkson — “A Moment Like This”
There’s no need to explain why this one made our list. Kelly is the OG.
8. Blake Lewis — “You Give Love A Bad Name”
Blake Lewis‘ rendition of this Bon Jovi class was epic!
9. David Archuleta — “Imagine”
This performance made us imagine David Archuleta winning his season.
10. Kris Allen — “Heartless”
This performance likely led to Kris Allen‘s win over Adam Lambert.
