The suits at Fox can breathe a sigh of relief--the new season of American Idol featuring J.Lo and Steven Tyler was a huge success.
During the two hour season premiere, the whole panel was pretty mild mannered overall, except when Tyler asked one contestant, “Did you eat a lot of paint chips as a child?” But even that didn't come off as mean as some of the things Simon usually says.
For the most part Hollyscoop's Twitter followers were thrilled with the new lineup.
@adamhousley said, "I have covered American Idol 4 all 9 seasons...while I miss Simon, the new panel is good."
@VirginiaWright2 added, "'American Idol' Season 10: Steven Tyler, where ya been all my life."
@Madridista_18 said, "I am soooooo impressed by the new season of American Idol! Amazing performances and stories that brought me to tears #AI10."
Even fellow reality star Ali Fedotowsky was glued to the tube. "Loving American Idol right now. Steven Tyler is the the man!"
J.Lo's hair was perfect, Steven was funny, the show was just heartwarming and touching. Looks like it's going to be a fantastic season after all!
With the New Jersey auditions completed, the “American Idol” peeps will head to New Orleans to see what talent awaits them in the Big Easy.
