Last night was the Season 20 premiere of American Idol! The show started in June of 2002 and has launched many careers over the years from Kelly Clarkson to Carrie Underwood Daughtry to Phillip Phillips, Adam Lambert to Jordin Sparks and Gabby Barrett to Jennifer Hudson.
The show has gone through many judging changes over the years… even Ellen Degeneres was a judge! But since relaunching on ABC Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie have been the judges. And the one thing that has been constant is host Ryan Seacrest.
