After 15 seasons — and countless success stories — TV’s biggest singing competition will end in spring 2016, Fox has confirmed.

Per the network’s official release:

AMERICAN IDOL will begin its 15th – and final – season this January on FOX. A season-long celebratory event, AMERICAN IDOL XV will feature host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr., as they search for the final IDOL superstar and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their IDOLs.

The current season of AMERICAN IDOL is down to the final three contestants.

The two night finale airs May 12 & 13 on Fox.
