Critic Reviews for American Idol Season 8

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Call him the "dark horse," the "Come-from-Behind Kid," the humble crooner. Call him whatever you like. But from now on you also need to call Kris Allen your American Idol.

The fact that the more-mainstream Kris won shouldn't be that surprising, as Adam was a polarizing figure whose dramatic stage-style alienated as many people as were captivated.

Mar 21, 2019 | Rating: 9.2/10 | Full Review…

[Adam] Lambert is another offensively easy call at a point when the show overall had grown hard to love and impossible to enjoy.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Maybe this season of [American] Idol become the Labradoodle of television: immensely popular, cuddly, trendy and maligned by over-educated people who like to complain.
