Ryan Seacrest said on the radio today that American Idol will be issuing an apology tonight for Steven Tyler’s “outrageous behavior.” The way Seacrest talked about it made it sound like the set-up for an exhausting Idol “joke,” perhaps for Tyler’s endlessly strange facial expressions. I can’t unsee them, Idol, but I don’t feel like I need an apology. Listen for yourselves:

Hm. A rep for Idol said she hadn’t seen the show and couldn’t comment, which means it’s open season in imagination land, I guess. Hit me with your best guess, PopWatchers: What exactly about Tyler’s behavior will Idol’s producers apologize for tonight?
