Tonight is part one of the 2015 finale of American Idol and it comes just after FOX has announced that the 15th season of the show will be its last. All cast members (Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban) will all return for its final season, but next year will be the show’s last. Currently, we are at the end of the 14th season and our top 3 sing tonight for the final two spots in the competition. It’s part one of the finale and tomorrow will be part two. Celebrity guests who will perform include Steven Tyler, New Kids On The Block, Ricky Martin, Fall Out Boy, and The Jacksons, according to My Central Jersey. The top 12 contestants from this season will also return for the big event.
So, who will move on to the final two? It’s down to Jax, Clark Beckham and Nick Fradiani. These three have managed to stay on top throughout the competition and they’ve each been fan favorites. The most popular contestant and the one who seems to have the entire package (image, performance skills, and vocals) is Jax. Beckham is humble and has charm, along with a beautiful voice, and Fradiani is a skilled performer, who has worked on eye contact as well as looking comfortable on stage. It’s really anyone’s game. Who do you think will be eliminated tonight?
The show tonight begins at 9:00 p.m. for a one-hour program, while part two of the finale takes place tomorrow from 8:00 – 10:06 p.m. on FOX.
