The new star of ‘American Idol‘ isn’t going anywhere — Steven Tyler has agreed to return for Season 11 of the show, along with fellow judge Randy Jackson.

A Fox rep has confirmed that the flamboyant rocker will return to the judges’ chair for Season 11. Tyler had signed a multi-year deal, so his return was expected. Likewise, Jackson, the show’s last original remaining judge, had given no indication that he was interested in leaving.

Tyler is clearly loving the gig. When asked the hardest thing about being an ‘Idol’ judge, he replied, “The amount of fun that we can have without getting arrested.”

With Tyler and Jackson on board, only Jennifer Lopez remains on the fence about coming back, although that could be a negotiating tactic. Her album ‘Love?’ has been doing well, but would J. Lo really turn down another $12 million for one more season?

Earlier this month, she said of her ‘Idol’ experience, “I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening, and it’s going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year. We’re not really at the breaking point of ‘You have to make a decision right now!'”
