Cast & Crew
Music should be treated like a craft. TV shows should invoke emotion. And competition should be a battle. And that's what I think this set of judges will do for the show.
As recent seasons have shown, the mix of judges can change in a heartbeat, too. If last year's combustible concoction proved nearly toxic, this season may provide the tonic.
You know American Idol has entered a new phase of its life when a guy who twerks while singing Over the Rainbow gets a ticket to Hollywood.
The [American] Idol franchise didn't crash and burn this season so much as vanish in the Indian Ocean.
It's polished. It's entertaining. And it's still committed to finding good singers.
Veteran judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban returned along with the musically savvy Harry Connick Jr. Together these three music icons brought a fresh, fun and professional new vibe to the smash reality hit.
[Keith] Urban tells one teenager, "The singing for me needs more work, but it's not just a singing show." If not, then what is [American] Idol? Thirteen seasons in, the show is still trying to figure that out.
In a sign that is very, very, very promising for The House That Kelly Clarkson Built, [ Producer Per] Blankens is instead placing his bets on lots and lots of genuinely talented kids with dreams of music superstardom.
Audience Reviews for American Idol: Season 13
Jun 16, 2017The Good: Probably the right final 2. Some standout performances by Jena Irene. The Bad: Arguably a dated winner. A seemingly strong group kind of fell apart early on.
Mar 25, 2014Though this season has proven to be better than the previous, it is not by much. Though less bias is presented through the judges' critiques and the environment of the show seems a lot more viewer/family friendly, there is some unnecessary change in format (this is mainly due to budget cuts), and a sense of bore in performances. I still enjoy watching the show, but sadly, it is not what is used to be.
