Despite being busy gearing up for the new season -- and Nicole's celebrated career taking her all around the world -- they always manage to put each other first.

While their marriage is going strong, one thing that is coming to an end is Idol. After 15 seasons, Fox's groundbreaking singing competition is coming to an end. However, according to Keith, the show is still going to keep its focus clear.
