tylerAug 19, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Aerosmith fans have a lot to rejoice as the web is abuzz with the news of Steven Tyler signing up for the judges panel in the next season of ‘American Idol’. In a panel that was earlier graced by the likes of Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, the Aerosmith frontman will be one of the biggest draws for the network if the deal is finalized. Several stars’ names have cropped on the web for the coveted judges position but Steven Tyler might just be the biggest and most close to true. Stars such as Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez an Justin Timberlake have been associated before with the singing reality show but none of the names have been officially announced by the ‘Idol’ authorities.

Though Steven Tyler’s name has been floating in the media for the past few weeks, it was not different from the other contenders for the panel. The biggest break came when a source close to the Aerosmith vocalist told the media that the deal is almost finalized. Fox network spokespersons have neither denied nor confirmed the news. Apart from Randy Jackson, the judges panel now has two vacant seats as Ellen DeGeneres has reportedly left the show and the number of judges has been brought down to three instead of four.

Known for smash hits like ‘Crazy’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing’, Aerosmith, led by Steven Tyler has dominated rock music industry for two decades now. Bassist Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith went on to say that the ink is dry on the deal and Steven Tyler is someone who lives to be in front of an audience.
