FOX has released the first five minutes of the final American Idol giving us a look at everything coming together including the arena filled cattle calls, judges arriving, and the auditions giving way to the coveted Golden Tickets.

Speaking of Golden Tickets, Idol shows us several of the singers who make it not only to Hollywood but on through the Showcase Round to become part of the American Idol 2016 Top 24 and we have the spoilers on all those Hopefuls.

In the mix of auditions and segments we get a lot of looks back over an incredible run with American Idol including Jennifer Lopez narrating the story of all the talent that came from the series and how many of those weren’t even season winners. It really is amazing to think of the careers that we have to enjoy thanks to Idol.
