The mystery has ended for at least one of the new American Idol 2011 judges. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, who earlier was reported to be a judge and then reported not be a judge, has leaked the details himself or at least from someone very close to him:
A source close to Steven Tyler says the Aerosmith frontman told the source he will be a judge on Fox’s “American Idol” next season.
While an official announcement about Tyler has yet to come from Fox and the producers of the top-rated show, the source told The Associated Press on Wednesday, “there is no reason to refute” Tyler’s account. The source spoke only on the condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to comment publicly on the matter.
What do you think of this judge selection? Sure, I’d love to have Bret Michaels, but upgrading from Kara Di-who? and Ellen to Steven Tyler is awesome! Now we just have to wait and see who will fill the role of Paula’s old seat since it won’t be J. Lo.
