American Idol Is O-V-E-R, But We'll Never Forget These 5 Fierce Women

The farewell season of American Idol (season 15 – can you believe it?!) ended last night, and we were feeling all the feels. The show was like a major reunion, and TONS of our previous favorite contestants and judges (shout out to Nicki Minaj!) said their final goodbyes ?. Although we were sooo sad to see this show come to an end, we were thrilled that the amazing Trent Harmon was announced the final winner.

2. Kelly Clarkson – Season 1 Winner


3. Carrie Underwood – Season 4 Winner


4. Jordin Sparks – Season 6 Winner 


5. Jennifer Hudson – Finalist in Season 3
