Randy Jackson celebrates amazing 'American Idol' talent

Music mogul Randy Jackson has celebrated the amazing talent discovered through 'American Idol' over the years

The show is now in its final season and Jackson told the Rolling Stone that they were lucky to have found some incredible artists as a result of it, and he mentioned Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert in particular:

"We got blessed with all the talent that we went out and found, from Adam Lambert to Carrie Underwood to Kelly Clarkson to Jennifer Hudson to Fantasia Barrino to Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken to Chris Daughtry. I'd like to give us props for doing that because we knew what we were after, what we were looking for, and we were in a little bit of a different position because we'd been in the industry so long and knew the industry so well and had made so many records."

Back in February, Lambert told Billboard that it'll be sad to see 'American Idol' go: "It's an end of an era, Idol will always go down in history for what it is and what it did and what it represents for people. It came long at a time when I think we, as a country, we needed to come together and we needed to believe in something hopeful and give underdogs a chance and celebrate music and the diversity of music in our country. I think they did a great job, and it's time to pack it up."
