American Idol 2016 Season Opening Sequence Is Emotional Flashback (VIDEO)

We’re just about two weeks away from the premiere of the farewell season of American Idol, and FOX is getting a jump on the hype by releasing the opening sequence for the 2016 premiere. The video is an emotional flashback to Idol’s roots — hell, it even features Brian Dunkleman!

In addition to looking back at past winners, the video also features comments from the judges, who seem ready to embark on one last search to find a superstar. I think it’s really starting to hit me that this is it, for what’s long been one of my favorite shows on television. Sure, it’s probably past time for the show to end, but there’s a lot of nostalgia tied in with Idol season, for me. Needless to say, I’m really going to miss American Idol. But the show has had an incredible run, as evidenced by this opening sequence. You can watch the full video below:
