It's a "Bittersweet 15" for the FOX hit "American Idol" -- as auditions open up for the show's fifteenth and final season.
Over the past decade and a half, the show has produced some of music's biggest superstars, including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Georgia's own Phillip Phillips. Judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick, Jr. (and host Ryan Seacrest) are set to return for the final season, which is currently holding auditions in cities across the country. On Sunday, the Idol Bus Tour stopped at The Classic Center in Athens, where hopefuls sang for the chance to become a superstar. Also on-hand was last season's runner up, Clark Beckham, who gave some advice to those auditioning.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken was there, and talked with Beckham about his whirlwind Idol journey.
