To close off the final season of “American Idol,” the show will bring back every judge from the past 14 years.

Host Ryan Seacrest told Access Hollywood that they’ve been able to rally every judge — including Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey — to appear in the 15th and final season of the televised singing competition.


Nicki Minaj, Steven Tyler, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi will appear.

Current judges include Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban who have been listening to finalists compete during Hollywood Week.
