Critic Reviews for American Idol Season 9

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

American Idol: reasonably talented, fairly out of touch, and not too far above average. But apparently America wouldn't have it any other way.

I had fun watching the stupid show. I'm pretty sure there are going to be six weeks of auditions or something wack like that but for tonight, I was OK with following along for another round.

Ss the perfect end to the show's worst season yet, Lee DeWyze won, despite being rather awful during the final performances.

Mar 26, 2020 | Full Review…

As a season premiere, it was just alright.

Mar 21, 2019 | Rating: 7.0/10 | Full Review…

Pin a Purple Heart on "General" [Larry] Pratt and fire the rest of this season into the sun.

This season, we've already been stripped of the pleasure that is Paula Abdul.
