Steven Tyler: I'm the Other Idol Judge

Now that we know Jennifer Lopez is one of the new judges on American Idol next season, we’re just waiting for the other one to be confirmed.

Many different people have been rumored to be in the running, like Harry Connick Jr. and Jessica Simpson. But according to Steven Tyler, the race is over, and he’s won the spot.

People reports that the Aerosmith frontman announced the news after his Vegas concert on Saturday, saying his future plans include “recording an album and [I’m] probably going to be judge on American Idol.”

But who knows if we can really believe him—Tyler may have just been in the joking mood. Fans said he announced onstage: “The rumors are true … I’m pregnant with Joe Perry’s baby.”

But he followed that up with: “I’m doing it. What do you think? I’m doing it.”

Plus, a source close to the situation tells People he is the new judge, and will sit alongside Jennifer Lopez, which was announced late last week. What do you think of this new 3-person judging panel?
