FOX Bids Farewell to ‘American Idol’


After a 15-year run, “American Idol” will conclude this evening on FOX. The two-hour finale, featuring returning contestants and judges, will begin at 7 p.m. CT.

Tonight’s program will feature group numbers and spotlight performances, before the last winner of “American Idol” is announced. Fans decide if tonight’s victory will go to contender La’Porsha Renae or Trent Harmon.

While the reality competition’s popularity has dropped in recent years, it made a major impact during its run. The Washington Post reviews how “American Idol” changed pop culture forever.

FOX is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
