American Idol was a favorite among Slingbox users this week; the show is currently in its fifteenth and final season. Through the years, the show has had a variety of different judges, with love-to-hate judge Simon Cowell perhaps best known. This season features Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. as judges and mentors for the aspiring singers.
Television personality Ryan Seacrest has returned to host the final season of the reality competition. Seacrest was the original host of the show when it premiered in 2002 and became an instant hit as Kelly Clarkson won the first season. Aside from Clarkson, American Idol has jumpstarted the careers of many stars, including Carrie Underwood, Tori Kelley, Jennifer Hudson and Jordan Sparks.
Next up on the show is Hollywood Week, during which the remaining contestants will perform as the judges will decide who will move on to the live rounds. At that point, it will be up to America to decide who is eliminated and who stays to sing another week.
Use your Slingbox to tune into the kickoff of Hollywood Week on American Idol tonight at 8:00 p.m. on FOX.
We’ll be back Friday with sports.
