Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- "American Idol" starts its 15th and final season tonight.

Judge Keith Urban says he thinks the show is returning to its roots as it gets ready to say goodbye.

It's sort of circled back around in so many ways for me and gotten back, the last couple of seasons, it's gotten back to the heart of what Idol is," Urban said. 

Urban will join judges Harry Connick Junior and Jennifer Lopez, but past winners, judges and other celebrities are expected to make appearances. Rapper Kanye West surprised the judges with an impromptu audition in San Francisco.

The first night of "American Idol" starts right here on WDRB, tonight at 8 p.m.
