Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

This is a show with good intentions that ultimately fails to deliver when it comes to compelling talent. Some groups are so bad they're actually cringe-inducing. Others are passable but nowhere near ready for prime time, and only a few (OK, maybe one or two) have a polished, professional sound. If these are truly the best of the yet-to-be-discovered groups out there, we have good reason to be afraid (very afraid).

But never fear: There's an upside. The amateur abilities of these wannabe singers and dancers actually remind viewers that creating a pitch-perfect pop group (a la Sean "Diddy" Combs) is a lot harder than it looks ... and that maybe it should be left to the experts. For that, we're eternally grateful.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
