As we've all heard by now, American Idol is ending. The show that skyrocketed Kelly Clarkson to stardom in 2002 is ending its run. So what do we think about this?
I think it's time. With competition like The Voice, America's Got Talent and everything else, the show has run its course. Plus, we all know Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and even some non-winners like Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken and Kimberly Caldwell, but the show has become a pathway to nothing more than relative obscurity and Z-list temporary celebrity. And with the rotating panel of celebrity judges who now get more press for fighting than the contestants do for singing, it is definitely time to sign off the air.
Not to mention that the one constant, Ryan Seacrest, has so much money that he never has to work another day in his life.
Anyway, it's time for American Idol to bow out as gracefully as possible so we're left with the positive memories, and we don't run into any more From Justin to Kelly moments.
