Tonight marks the end of an era as “American Idol”‘s notoriously snarky and painfully honest judge Simon Cowell bids adieu to the show that made him a household name in America.

To send him off in style, the show’s producers gathered cast and crew last week to tape various farewell video segments – Ryan shot his with Randy Jackson. These three partners in crime are inseparable while on the road for auditions, often doing breakfast, lunch and dinner together…always just the boys.

Watch tonight as “Idol” says goodbye to Cowell, and crowns the next American Idol! The two-hour finale starts at 8/7c only on FOX!
