Steven Tyler Will Come Back For a Second Season of ‘American Idol,’ Claims Randy Jackson
Considering that 'American Idol' spits out judges nearly as fast as contestants, many were speculating on whether or not Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler would sign on for another season.
But if you ask judge Randy Jackson, Tyler’s return is more than likely, especially after that timeless "Dream On" performance on the season finale.
Jackson was a guest on Thursday’s (May 26) edition of 'Lopez Tonight,' and during his talk with host George Lopez, Jackson chattered about his experience working alongside Tyler on 'Idol' and whether this season's new judges will come back next season.
When asked about Tyler, Jackson gushed: "I was one of the first people that suggested Steven for the show 'cause I've known him for a while,” he said, as transcribed by Blabbermouth.net. “And what I love about him the most [is that] what you see [of him] is exactly 100% what you get. He is so hilariously funny, dude. He just calls it like he sees it.”
As for the big question, whether Tyler and Jennifer Lopez will return next season, he confirmed, “We'll all be back. I believe we'll all be back.”
