10 Of The Biggest Hits From 'American Idol' Contestants
Say it ain’t so! The popular singing competition, ‘American Idol,’ will be ending after its 15th season in 2016, and honestly, it’s a little hard to believe.

'American Idol' Prediction: Who Will Be Crowned Season XIV Champ
Last night on American Idol, Nick Fradiani and Clark Beckham went head to head for the American Idol crown. The result was one of the most evenly matched Idol finales we've ever seen.

Earlier this week, American Idol announced its cancellation after next year. More than ever, the American Idol music team needs to crown a marketable winner. We haven't really seen many American Idols reach Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood levels of musical success, so Idol should not put too much pressure on Clark or Nick for post-Idol huge record sells.

However, Nick's "Beautiful Life" single has potent...

On Tuesday, The Voice unveiled the four finalists that the show will carry to next week's finals. It's only the second time since the series moved to its current format that there have been four finalists, with the Twitter Instant Save replacing last season's Wild Card as the last free pass back into the competition.
