The folks at American Idol continue to ruin my days with a continuous stream of nostalgia-laden promos for the fifteenth and final season of the show. Here are two new spots that will once again have fans breaking out the handkerchiefs.
Another spot that features season 7 winner, David Cook’s coronation song, the time of my life, focuses on host Ryan Seacrest uttering familiar lines. When Ryan utters “Dim the lights, Kieran, and here we go” for the very last time, I will probably burst into tears.
Check out the screen grab from David Cook’s emotional crowning. Jason Castro, David Archuleta, David Cook and the late Michael John all in one shot. Ugh, the feels. There are more winning moments from new, but still sob-inducing angles.
In another variation on the “Moment Like This” promos, crowds of American Idol hopefuls at auditions across the country sing “A Moment Like This” as they wait to audition. Is the next American Idol among them? Kelly stops her coronation performance with a “WHOO!” to fan and calm herself. Plus, more confetti moments and more tears.
American Idol returns to FOX for one last season beginning January 6.
