Kicking off our list was the inevitable reunion of Simon, Paula, and Randy. While it was anticipated that the three original judges would make an appearance at the finale, Paula and Randy were the only two that came out on stage and right when they were about to talk about how Simon couldn’t make it, the man himself walked out on stage and surprised everyone. Simon even called Paula, Randy, and Ryan his best friends during his touching speech and it was the most amazing moment any Idol fan could ask for. Well, almost.
I mean, what would an American Idol finale be without its biggest, most successful Idol returning to perform a medley of her hits on the show that kicked off her musical career? Sadly, Kelly’s performance was pre-taped due to her pregnancy, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t great, because it was.
It all pretty much came back full circle with that performance, don’tcha think so? As incredible as it was seeing the original judges get back together and Kelly’s fantastic medley of all of her hits, it was even better watching Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia Barrino, and LaToya London aka the show’s biggest divas get together for an incredible rendition of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water.’
Ugh, that performance gave me all of the feels. As amazing as it would’ve been to have the last show just feature solo performances from the best Idol contestants of the past, it would’ve obviously taken away from Trent and La’Porsha’s night, sooo the show gave us the next best thing: super long medleys featuring a lot of the past contestants and that within itself was amazing.
With that being said, the next best moment that made it onto this list was the entire acoustic medley that featured Katharine McPhee, Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard, Jessica Sanchez, and a few others. But, since we can’t show you the entire performance, here’s Jessica ending the powerful medley by slaying ‘The Prayer.’
She killed it. Another best moment from the bittersweet night was Kimberly Locke’s return to Idol. Not to mention her little duet with Jordin Sparks in the middle of the pop medley was also pretty great.
And of course, the show couldn’t end without a few performances from the people who managed to make their way into our hearts by just auditioning for the show. Yeah, you know what I’m getting at. William Hung got a taste of what it was like to make it past the beginning audition round and finally perform for a huge crowd on Idol.
But he wasn’t the only one. Larry Platt also made a quick appearance with his original hit, ‘Pants On the Ground’ during the Pop Medley performance and it was just the best thing ever. Take a look.
So much has happened on American Idol in the past 14 years and somehow the producers managed to fit almost everything that made the show what it was in just a two hour slot. Right before the show ended and Ryan was signing off from American Idol for what was supposed to be the last time, he was heard saying ‘that’s it’ and took a huge pause and added ‘for now.’ Excuse me, Ryan, but ‘for now?’ Sooo, does that mean there’s a possibility that American Idol may be coming back in the future? That sign-off obviously leaves it open for any and all possibilities for an Idol reboot…I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see.
