American Idol Celebrates 500 Episodes! (VIDEO)


It was a very special occasion tonight for American Idol 13! The show celebrated its 500th episode! WOW. To commemorate the milestone, clips of American Idol winners congratulating, and thanking the show were sprinkled throughout the broadcast. I gathered them ALL here for your viewing pleasure!

Also, there was a montage that aired before the intro that was a veritable trip down memory lane. Such fun! I’ve got that clip here, plus an edit of all the winners clips in one video! You are welcome!

Congratulations American Idol! I still love that cheesy show!
