In 2010, American Idol announced that they were going to decrease the minimum age requirement from 16 to 15, according to Deadline. This announcement came on the show's 10th anniversary, in the wake of Simon Cowell's departure and plummeting ratings. The Idol judges chimed in with support for the decision, saying it lets the show tap into younger talent. Some critics have expressed concern that lowering the age limit exploits young talent.
