Steven Tyler has made it official today as he announced he is leaving the judge's chair on American Idol. Tyler was a judge for the past 2 years on Idol.

Tyler released this statement;

"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. The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover."

"On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars. IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it ... Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”

At a press conference for the "Global Warming" tour, Steven stated that "We would not let you down" when it came to Aerosmith. It seems he knew that he would have to commit to the band full time.

As for Idol, there has been no ill will and wish Steven good luck with Aerosmith.

With Jennifer Lopez being non-committal about returning to the singing competition, Idol is in shambles yet again.-DocFB


American Idol Finale Underwhelms, Much Like This Season


Leave it to the judges to save the show on the American Idol finale as Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler along with his band Aerosmith to make the show somewhat watchable.

It was obvious after Tuesday's show that Phillip Phillips was going to be the next American Idol. Maybe if Jessica Sanchez was able to perform with Jennifer Holliday on Tuesday's show, she would have made it more interesting.

Chaka Khan dazzled with her very skinny self and Neil Diamond showed that he can still dress sharp and bring his own style to the show.

There was a tribute to Robin Gibb that was somewhat off key.  A tribute for Donna Summer that was to feature Sheila E. never made it to live air.  Guess there just wasn't time after an on air proposal from former Idol castoff's Ace and a girl with a nice backside.

The finale underwhelmed like it did for most of the season.  We were not talking about the performances, aside from Jessica Sanchez being "saved" weeks ago.  Nope.  We focused on Jennifer Lopez's dresses and some overobsessed on her make up.  We looked for what Steven would say.

We never had that shining moment.  We had a moment when Sanchez did "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston earlier in the season.  To show how much this season lacked, they had Sanchez sing the song again last night.

The American Idol Finale used to pull in Super Bowl numbers with special guests and a few surprises.  There were no surprises.  Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler made it bearable last night but not "must see" at all.

So, expect Jennifer to get her $25 million plus.  Expect Tyler to pull in $12 million and to see them next year.  The thing is, unless the talent improves, something has to change on Idol.

Somewhere, Simon Cowell is scheming.  If the judges of American Idol are stealing the show, his judges will do more than that.  With Britney Spears signed on and up and comer Demi Lovato there as well, it makes "must see tv" for X Factor.

The reason?  The talent pool on X Factor was much better than Idol's this year.  Simon knew his show needed improvements and fast.  Hiring Spears and Lavato gets them age groups that Idol no longer has.

Idol had to remind us about Kris Evans and Taylor Hicks last night.  They even took credit for Adam Lambert (Not an Idol winner) hitting number 1 knocking off Carrie Underwood, who was an Idol winner.

The Voice isn't dominating yet although the talent pool on that show was better than Idol this season.  Simon Cowell knows Idol dropped the ball and he intends to pick it up and not give it back.

Here is a photo of Steven Tyler arriving to the "Global Warming Tour" press conference last month. We were by the stage so had that angle covered.

We ran into Lisa Margaroli who was able to get this pic of Steven signing autographs for the fans before taking the stage.

The Global Warming Tour kicks off in Minneapolis, MN June 16th and we will have a special article on Aerosmith covering the tour and more next week.

Thanks again to Lisa for allowing us to use her photograph.-DocFB


Video Premiere: Steven Tyler “Feels So Good”

Here is "Feels So Good" the new video by frontman of Aerosmith & American Idol judge Steven Tyler.

The video is trippy and features some of Steven's facial anticts. Looking a lil bit older so it somewhat creeps me out at first.

What do you think of the new song and video by Steven?-Dr.FB

Diagnosis: This Is....Steven Tyler

While J. Lo remains quiet, and hasn't posted on her Twitter account in 6 months, which we imagine will change today, Steven Tyler was anything but quiet last night in Las Vegas.

Although TMZ reported Steven Tyler would be in L.A. all weekend, he actually performed with Aerosmith last night in Las Vegas.

Steven said during the show;

“recording an album and [I’m] probably going to be a judge on American Idol.”

"I’m doing it. What do you think? I’m doing it.”

He also said "I’m pregnant with Joe Perry’s baby.”

The official announcement will be today where barring any last minute changes, it will be Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson as your American Idol judges.

Not sure if Ryan Seacrest will make the announcement.-Dr.FB

Steven Tyler has checked into rehab for addiction to pain killers.

It seems he became addicted top the pain killers for chronic knee and leg pain he has had in the past decade.

There is no word on how long he has been addicted to the pain killers. 

Steven released this statement before being admitted to rehab;

"I love Aerosmith; I love performing as the lead singer in Aerosmith. I am grateful for all of the support and love I am receiving and am committed to getting things taken care of,"

Hopefully, the other boys of Aerosmith will put this whole let's replace Steven Tyler and still call ourselves Aerosmith on the back burner while Steven recovers.-Dr.FB
