It’s Official: Steven Tyler Out At American Idol

American Idol 2013 may or may not have Jennifer Lopez on the panel, but Steven Tyler as a judge is a definite no.

The Aerosmith frontman decided two seasons on the judges’ panel were enough and he’s decided to focus on his primary gig.

“After some long … hard … thoughts … I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” Tyler said in a statement. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back –- but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.”

While Tyler claims the exit was his decision, there are speculation Fox is trying to refresh the show once again. Perhaps with judges that actually offer some criticism.

American Idol alum Adam Lambert’s name has been tossed around as a new judge. Other names in the ring are Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Fergie.
