Steven Tyler Leaves American Idol: It’s Official!

While we were busy fretting over whether Jennifer Lopez would be returning for a third season of judging on American Idol, we didn’t expect another judge to plot his exit as well!

According to a Fox press release, Steven Tyler has officially decided to leave the show. The Aerosmith frontman released a decidedly cheeky statement, stating, “After some long... hard... thoughts... I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit. I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back — but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I'm kicking the door open with my band.”

After seeing Steven glammed up and rocking out in the new video for Aerosmith’s “Legendary Child,” we can see why he’s itching to get back to his “first love.” We wish him all the best!
