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."

In my opinion they should have shook things up a bit more.
How about, Snoop,Ozzy,David Bowie,Boy G.Joan Jett,The RZA,
Ghostface,Richard Simmons,Dee Snider,Jerry Hall,Diddy,Rod S.
Diana Ross,Axl R,Beyonce,Lita Ford,Gloria E,Latoya Jackson
Carnie Wilson,Mackenzie Phillips,George Michael,Madonna,Jay Z.
Lou Reed,Eric Clapton,the man that started Back Street,In Sync-
think his name is Ron Pearlman).
If they didn`t already have shows,
Harvey (knows all about celebs and that it factor)
Ex-Look at his staff all unique (it factor)
Wendy Williams ( A radio legend knows her music )
What a personality real, unaffected, also unique.
Best to everyone.

BAD CHOICES AMERICAN IDOL EXECS. You've pissed off alot of
Idol fans with this new crew.
Tyler=washed up old drag queen with a drug fried brain.
Jlo=tone-deaf has been from too far back.

The producers thought what's her/his name Ellen/Edward was also a good "fit." Tyler is much harder to look at..he is really, really physically ugly.

GOOD, I'M GLAD ALL THE STUPID ASS FANS ARE LEAVING AND NOT WATCHING!! THOSE ARE THE IDIOTS WHO VOTED FOR NO TALENTS TO WIN SINCE 2006 WHEN THE SHOW JUMPED THE SHARK. STEVEN TYLER IS THE ONLY REAL TALENT THAT IDIOT SHOW EVER HAD.

-ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAMER SINCE 2001 W/AEROSMITH
-#99 ON ROLINGSTONES TOP 100 SINGERS ALL TIME
-MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST AND CAN PLAY EVERY FREAKIN INTRUMENT IN A BAND
-COUNTLESS HITS AND DEEP BACK CATALOGUE
-GREAT LIVE ACT SINCE 1974.

ALL YOU MORONS SHUD A LITTLE RESEARCH. NOW WHATEVER EFFING JUDGE HAS THE SAME BASIC REQUIREMENTS? EXACTLY... ZERO. DUMP RANDY JACKSON. HE'S A MORON AND A 3RD RATE GUITAR PLAYER.

Love Aerosmith. I just don't know about Tyler. Sure, he's got mega singing background experience, but.....I don't know. Would have MUCH preferred Bret Michaels.

to me they need a judge in the same vein as Simon-someone who understands the record companies, has experience on the inside track on signing artists, has a finger on the pulse of the music business on the "business" side...marketing, producing, recognizing talent quickly etc.

not the "performance" side of the industry -which the new panel of judges will be too heavy on

Paula had the artistic eye-since she was a performer and top choreographer - but seemed a bit flakey at times
Randy had a pretty good balance with his production and inside the industry skills - even though I'm tired of the "dog" talk and wish he would use a more adult than hip vocabulary
and of course Simon on the business end with skills honed over the years recognizing talent - with his blunt comments that were new to US audiences, moving him from despised to loved in a short time

It was a balance that worked

I don't see Tyler, Lopez and Jackson giving the same chemisty and balance that the original 3 did. Simon we respected because of his ability, strong opinions and great "ear" and I don't see respecting Tyler.

And Lopez can sing, dance and act so even though her experience in those areas is valuable, it puzzles me as to why she'd want the "Paula" role - other than it's a cushy gig, pays well and allows her time with her family that being on the road or long movie shoots would not-- the family reason alone is what I think has driven her decision

Steven is sexxxy no matter how old he gets! Hopefully that show will become a little more rock and a little less pop. I might even start watching it if ST is a judge.
