I’ve been resisting running too much about the endless “who will be the new judges on Idol” escapades but with two respectable news sources (Hollywood Reporter, using two sources, and E!, citing one) saying it’s a done deal, I am going to report: Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler has a seat at the judge’s panel.
Tyler is a total wild card. We haven’t really seen him do any judging before. He isn’t exactly pretty to look at and it’s hard to say if he’ll be truly honest. The guy wears colorful clothing and has a reputation for being outrageous. So I’m withholding judgment until we see him in January.
This still leaves the third seat open (presuming a fourth is not an option and Kara DioGuardi is gone, something “Idol” has yet to say.) These reports say Jennifer Lopez is not totally out, that Shania Twain is in the running. I’m still hoping for something out of the blue.
