steven tyler american idol finaleWhile America will have to wait until tonight to see who is crowned their next 'American Idol,' judge, Steven Tyler, seems to have already made up his mind about the competition.

"I never wanted to do 'American Idol,'" he told E! Online after last night's live show. "I turned around and said, 'The show sucks. How can kids be [an] American idol? They haven't played clubs, they haven't paid their dues, they haven't done what we did.'"

But Tyler seems to be singing a different tune now that's he's had a full season behind the judge's table.

"I was wrong. They are out there, we just have to wade through a bunch of them."
