Idol 2018  big red 1959  5 star

I have been watching Idol since it’s inception and this by far had the best singers. My pick is Caleb, who has such an awesome voice. I love traditional country and he sure sang that. Maddie was good and congrats to her on her win. Didn’t think the judges would be good but they were. Can’t wait to hear Ryan say “This is American Idol” for the next new talented contestants!

Doesn’t work  Amiee's IPod  1 star

Could not get this app to work


Pathetic  Jaikshtakbddivdywbxoj  1 star

This app is bad. Very hard to login through Facebook; asks for email confirmation even though Facebook was used. DO NOT RECOMMEND.


frustrating and a waste  Kedsq3  1 star

it’s really frustrating that i enjoy the show and can never vote. tune in every week when it starts and every week it never lets me vote cause it always says voting is closed. maybe it’s different on the east coast but if your on the west coast it’s a waste.


TERRIBLE!!! 🤯🤬🤬🤯  SistahSan  1 star

I have tried, multiple times, but the ‘link to Facebook’ has yet to work. As a result, in order to vote, I would be ‘forced’ to ‘join’! I prefer to not have my options limited in such a manner!!! I just want the darn app to work — without ‘working my last nerve’ in the process!

Can’t log in  eeveecharm  1 star

I tried going through Facebook and by creating an account and it won’t let me log in. It says that something is incorrect and that the password is case sensitive.

mad  Jejshdehsu  1 star

Okay so i just downloaded the app, logged in my information, right? And, it says i’m not eligible. I am ten years old, and i just LOVE how it says 4+, and i’m above four years old. Like, for real?


Wonderful  Birds7536  5 star

So glad Idol is back! App is great for voting!


Doesn’t Work!!  gbbutcher  1 star

Tried to create an account and log in at least 10 times! I give up. The verification of email address seems to be the problem. When I click on verify email link in the email sent to me, I am redirected to a blank page....I won’t be voting this American Idol season....


No verification email!!  XOXO_love_u  1 star

Looks like the app would be good but it’s not sending me a verification email!

Trevor  Bringbacksimon  1 star

I can’t for the life of me understand why they let Trevor go and kept some of the ones they did. I know a lot about music and am very disappointed in all the judges and am frankly wondering if they have the musical knowledge To be judges on this show. I Am not impressed. I loved it in the beginning but I see so many mistakes! I am not even interested in watching anymore and not as big of a fan of judges as I was even as singers! Not good choices!!


Not that the developers care...  Williams77  1 star

The most difficult app to register with I've ever seen in my life. I used Facebook, then was routed to Disney, then routed to my email, then told that the verify link was invalid, then had to start from zero. I'm sure others have installed this and given up.

Agree  Lcseymour  5 star

I agree this app is perfect.


Voting is broken  Joenzell  1 star

You can’t even vote because the time runs out before you even get to see them sing (I’m streaming “live” online)


Doesn’t work!  Edawg1214  1 star

I sign into my account and it just keeps coming up to a blank white screen every time! I know it is the correct account information too because they sent me an email to verify it! But even that went to a blank white screen as well when I clicked on the like to verify! So frustrating!!


Wrong Way for ”Voting”  Marlene.J  1 star

Why in the world should we “guess” on the voting before we even get a chance to hear them sing? That’s the most ridiculous thing ever! Take a clue from “ The Voice” app with the Yes or No button...AFTER they sing! The app was the one thing causing me to watch live rather than watching later in DVR. Well, you lost me on that twisted vote before they sing! Bye-bye App. Deleting. Back to The Voice. What a shame!
