AI10 Tour Kicks Off In Salt Lake City

The American Idol Season 10 tour kicked off Wednesday night in Salt Lake City, UT. This year's tour format is more akin to that of Season 6 - lots of group songs/duets, Idols singing backup for each other, less solos, and no winner's appearance until the end of the show. And it's a long show too - over 30 numbers!

First review of the show, from the Salt Lake Tribune (who thinks the Top 10 are the "most talented singers ever assembled in the show’s 10 seasons." LOL NO. The reviewer also complains about the length of the show. Dude. Come on. If it's a good show, it's never too long.): REVIEW

And another review, from the Daily Herald also praised the Idols' "serious vocal chops" (while also saying that most will struggle to have a career after this): REVIEW
