Before you enjoy American Idol: The Farewell Season, though, take some time to look back at these fantastic auditions from the last 14 seasons. Some truly talented people have graced the cramped audition rooms of countless hotels and event centers…and their brilliant first performances need to be heard!

How many of these amazing performances did you remember?

American Idol airs on Fox on Wednesdays at 8/7c.

It might feel a little different from when the show first aired in 2002, but there are bound to be more incredible moments as the American Idol journey comes to an end.
