Critic Reviews for American Idol Season 14

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

"We're in the business of making superstars and this year, business is booming," says Ryan Seacrest, without the faintest hint of irony -- now feels like some quaint holdover aspiration from the earliest days.

Whatever you want to say about the past few seasons, this show has churned out some of the biggest moments in music and pop culture of the last 15 years.

And while the Season 14 premiere confirmed that Fox has no extensive renovation plans for The House That Kelly Clarkson Built, it did remind us that said structure can be a warm and very lovely place to relax for a few hours a week from January to May.

I have tremendous hope that this could be the season that makes American Idol great again.

The fact that Idol was still on the air at this point was, indeed, whack.

Audience Reviews for American Idol: Season 14

  • Jun 16, 2017
    An inconsistent season, at moments great and at moments pretty tired. The Good: The final 7 were pretty solid. The Bad: Incredibly inconsistent and not a single performance that will go down in Idol history.

    Still dominated by the judges antics ... ugh, entertaining, but they all ready made it ... who about the judges ...

    Forgettable. Judges prefer how they look on stage over how they sound.

    American Idol delivers their 13th season with host Ryan Seacrest and judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr, and Keith Urban. This season delivers 39 episodes of young contestants delivering their best efforts. This season seemed like a less mature group of artists trying to find their way and more coaching in the style of The Voice than past seasons. This also marks the first season of Harry and the first season without Randy Jackson (which was fine). The group of contestants was not as polished and mature as past seasons. This season may have shown the most growth in artistry during a single season than past seasons, but I can’t say these artists will make it big time because even after the season they still appeared to have room for growth. Overall, I did enjoy this season’s hosts and dynamics, but I can’t say the outcome was as awarding as year’s past. Grade: B
