Steven Tyler has already offered a response to Minaj's pointed accusations that he's a racist (due to comments he made about her judging ability). The former and current 'American Idol' judge had a bit of a spat in the press, with Tyler chalking it up to a big ol' misunderstanding.
Rumors of Jennifer Lopez supposedly leaving 'American Idol' flooded every kind of news wave imaginable. Yet Aerosmith frontman and 'Idol' judge Steven Tyler was the first to announce his exit from the reality show competition. And, as we all know now, Lopez followed suit soon after and confirmed her departure from the show.
(Now former) 'American Idol' judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler each announced their departure from the show this week, with Lopez announcing that she was moving on during a chat with 'Idol' host Ryan Seacrest on Friday (July 13). Tyler beat her to the punch, releasing a statement about his imminent exit the day before. Now a report has surfaced indicating that each judge was fired, even though the show allowed them to bow out gracefully.
Tyler…out! (To borrow phrase from host Ryan Seacrest.)
After two seasons, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has chosen to leave his role as a judge on 'American Idol.' Tyler made the announcement via press release, smack dab in the middle of speculation that Charlie Sheen is up for a slot on the panel and right after Jennifer Lopez, who joined the same season as Tyler, said that she thinks it's time for her to go. Will Randy 'Yo! Dawg!' Jackson be the sole judge to remain?
On tonight's season finale of 'American Idol,' judge Steven Tyler performed with his band Aerosmith. The longtime and much loved rockers debuted their brand-new single, 'Legendary Child.' The song is a rager, and Tyler, best known on the show for his clever, from left field one-liners, was in full on rock star mode once he got in front of that crowd.
