#TBT American Idol Premiered 13 Years Ago Today

After 13 years we found out that next season with the final season for American Idol.  13 years is a pretty good run.  No, 13 years is a great run.

The run began on this day in 2002 as a Summer replacement show on Fox.

The original lineup of judges:  Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Paula Abdul.  The original show also had two hosts.  Ryan Seacrest and …. wait for it… Brian Dunkleman.

Brian only lasted that one season.

American Idol has certainly gained the reputation of the biggest singing contest on the planet, even bigger than the original Pop Idol in Britain.

Kelly Clarkson was the first winner of American Idol, Carrie Underwood is the most decorated, just winning her 13 CMT award just last night.
