Steven Tyler Tells Friend He's an 'American Idol' Judge
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a friend of Steven Tyler told the Associated Press that the Aerosmith frontman is confirmed as a judge on the upcoming season of 'American Idol.'
"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 AP writes.
FOX did not comment on the report. Stay tuned to PopEater for developments!
Ellen DeGeneres left 'Idol' after just one season, announcing her departure weeks ago. Shortly after the report, news arrived that Kara DioGuardi had been fired -- and that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler looked like the replacements. While J.Lo has since reportedly been nixed, Tyler is now all but confirmed.
