Steven Tyler drops backstage hint about 'American Idol' deal: Report

Steven Tyler may very well be American Idol’s newest judge…if you trust the backstage chatter of Steven Tyler, that is. People.com caught up with the Aerosmith frontman Saturday night as he entered an afterparty for the band’s Las Vegas concert and asked him about his future plans. “Recording an album and [I’m] probably going to be judge on American Idol,” he said. “I’m doing it. What do you think? I’m doing it.” Reps for Fox and American Idol have repeatedly declined to comment on speculation about the show’s season 10 judging panel. A source close to the show said on Friday evening that no final decision will be announced at the network’s Press Tour panel this morning in Los Angeles, and that no final deals had been inked as of that time.
