Critic Reviews for American Idol Season 10

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Despite all the changes, this show is pretty much exactly where I left it.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

We have about five thousand years before we actually get to the performance episodes, so I don't want to make any premature predictions, but I am optimistic about this season, if just for the reason that it's not going to be last season.

Mar 19, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A lot of talent but little surprise falling off its pedestal but not getting hurt.

Mar 25, 2020 | Full Review…

Call me a sentimental fool, but after two hours of mostly terrific musical performances, the sight of 17-year-old Scotty McCreery hugging his family and fellow contestants was the kind of happy ending that was hard not to love.

Mar 22, 2019 | Full Review…

I couldn't help but to notice how much the show's standards are lowered with Simon out of the picture.

Mar 21, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

The era when [American] Idol was seen as a supernatural force seems to be at an end. The time of thinking of Idol as just a TV show among TV shows may have arrived.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

As Idol careened toward irrelevance, [Steven] Tyler tried to keep the show afloat. I think he deserved to win over any contestant in his inaugural season.
