Steven Tyler confirms addition to American Idol judges panel

American Idol just got way cooler, that is, if Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is to be believed.

The rocker pretty much confirmed that he will be a part of the new round up of judges as American Idol rolls into its tenth season.

People magazine reports:

Commenting briefly before entering a concert afterparty at Studio 54, Tyler said his future plans include “recording an album and [I’m] probably going to be judge on American Idol.”

Rumors of Tyler, 62, joining the restructured panel began surfacing last week. At his Las Vegas concert at MGM Grand, Tyler even poked fun at the rumors telling fans, “The rumors are true … I’m pregnant with [guitarist] Joe Perry’s baby.”

It’s likely Tyler will be joined on the judging panel by Jennifer Lopez, a source told People. Revealing little about his probable decision to join Idol, Tyler simply said, “I’m doing it. What do you think? I’m doing it.”

I hope this is true. He rocks and he could use the downtime. What do you think?
