Steven Tyler on 'American Idol' -- 'I'm Doing It!'

8/2/2010 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Tyler laid to rest  the question of whether he's going to be a judge on the next season of "American Idol" -- when the Aerosmith frontman nonchalantly told cameras Saturday night, "I'm doing it ... What do ya think? I'm doing it!"



UPDATE: "Idol" executives are being far more coy than Tyler -- because they told reporters today that "no one has signed a deal on either side of the camera who wasn't on the show last year."

If the producers of AI are dumb enough to have Jennifer "no talent" Lopez and Steven Tyler as judges, it's time to hang it up for good. I already mentioned Lopez's lack of talent, but Tyler just looks like a drag queen with collapsed cheek bones.

Scary!

What is this Nigel guy thinking? He is destroying his show. Tyler is a washed up has been. You can tell by him asking "I'm doing it, WHAT DO YOU THINK? It's all about him -- Like he still views himself as some kind of viable star. Idol is gone...

An OLD, DRUG-ADDLED HAS BEEN as the new judge? What does he have, maybe 3 active brain cells left? Nice choice Idol producers...

OK, everyone has an opinion...here's mine. Steve Tyler is great at being the front man for Aerosmith. But to nurture and bring along raw talent, making them stars. Since Paula and Simon have left, the current panel just seem to be going thru the motions.
In order to give the show America Idol some zip and zing the should get rid of everyone but Randy. Then start rebuilding the judges. So lets go back to what worked, since we can't have Simon, lets get Paula back, and for the 3rd slot, Bret Michaels. He knows what it takes to entertain the audience, what it means to "make it". He know all about the work involved, Bret knows the good and bad of being a rock star. He has lived that life so he know what to tell the group what to expect and what to look for.
So Randy, Bret, and Paula Abdul, they will be the new Judges, and I think will turn out some winners, have a entertaining show and allow the public to see young talent and AI to regain the title of an excellent show that they once had.

you know believe it or not but when AI first started in 02, because no one knew the panel and ryan, people shook their heads to the show because it was different. i guarantee you that the ones saying they wont watch will end up watching just to see what happens and how it all goes. because you are curious. you can say all you want, to make a sound, that you wont watch it but just wait. ;)

I have no intention or reason to continue watching AI now. Sad. My hopes were up last week when I had heard the rumor of Timberlake, Simpson and Elton John. It would have been entertaining and similar to the original chemistry. But Tyler and Lopez??? Bleccchhhh. Crazy druggy AWOL guy and boring diva tone deaf girl.

They should just end it now and leave it all a good memory.
