"American Idol," which gave the world Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson, will fade into TV and music history after Thursday night's epic finale.
Randy, Paula and Simon returned. J-Lo twerked and Carrie Underwood performed with Keith Urban. A very pregnant Kelly Clarkson also sang.
The show that changed the intersection of TV and music crowned its final champion. All 15 winners (and many popular runners-up) came back to sing. What did fans think?
And finally, an emotional Trent Harmon was crowned as 'Idol's last winner.
