American Idol announced its final season last Monday, and former contestant Kellie Pickler has a very understanding view toward the show's end.
"Everything that starts comes to an end at some point," she tells PEOPLE.
"It changed my life and so many others, and I was so blessed to be a part of the show," Pickler, 28, explains at a Lung Force event on Tuesday. "Hopefully they will have a little Idol reunion for the finale next year and we can all reunite."

In the 14 seasons of American Idol, very few auditions have been as memorable as William Hung's.
The season 3 contestant was deemed one of the worst singers by Simon Cowell for his off-key performance of Ricky Martin's "She Bangs."
