The US TV drama series that brought back the AMERICAN BANDSTAND era and featured modern pop stars portraying their 1960s heroes has been axed.

AMERICAN DREAMS, which has featured Usher as Marvin Gaye, Alicia Keys as FONTELLA BASS and Nick Lachey as Tom Jones, has been slipping down the ratings for much of its current season and now bosses at network NBC have decided the dreams are over for the cast.

The show, which won two Emmy Awards, focused on a Catholic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, family desperately trying to come to terms with a changing America.
