Will Steven Tyler be the New Judge on American Idol?
American Idol fans, soon enough you’ll welcome a new judge. And what if we tell you the new judge is Steven Tyler of Aerosmith?
Well, although the news had not been officially confirmed by “American Idol” producers or the show’s network, a source close to the rumored future judge was pretty confident about his statement.
The source is Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton, who said he was told by the band’s frontman, 62-year-old Tyler that he will be a judge on Fox’s “American Idol” next season. With full confidence, 58-year-old Hamilton shared, “Steven is doing American Idol. The ink is dry on that. So, we’ll have to work around his schedule for a new record.”
He commented, “Steven is someone who absolutely lives to be in front of an audience, and the people closest to him know how witty and entertaining he can be.” And further added, “I don’t know if American Idol will be rock ‘n’ roll enough for him, but it is an opportunity for millions of people to see another side of Steven Tyler.”
The “American Idol” judging panel has been hanging on a thread with the departure of cruel-but-lovable judge Simon Cowell, as well as Ellen DeGeneres’ recent announcement that she would not return for a second season. There are even rumors about Kara DioGuardi’s intention to resigning too.
Well if this is true, hopefully Tyler could bring ‘sweet emotion’ on the show. So, what do you think about Steven Tyler as American Idol’s (possible) new judge?
