Steven Tyler Won't Act Like Simon Cowell

by at . Comments

Having already sat in for numerous season 10 auditions, Steven Tyler has a clear idea of how he'll serve as an American Idol judge. And it won't be akin to a certain cantankerous Brit.

"I'm really not one for giving insults," Tyler says. "[Contestants] have a voice and I don't want them not singing to their kids when they grow up."

The show will likely feature fewer trainwrecks during its opening set of episodes, which should make things easier for Tyler. Below, however, this Christmas promo does give voice to those without a good voice:

As for his new partner in judging, Tyler has nothing but great things to say about Jennifer Lopez.

"First and foremost, she's a lady and she's not afraid to show that at any given time... she's exactly what I thought she'd be. She's street."

Well... okay then. Chime in now, readers: Are you excited about the addition of Tyler and Lopez to American Idol?

Bella, sorry, it's American Idol, not a freakin' concert. Tyler won't even be playing music, so who needs his ugly mug where Simon's gorgeous face once sat?

I have to say that if you are old enough to know who Steven Tyler is and understand the level of talent held within this ONE individual you would have to agree that Idol will be better than before! I, along with thousands of others, will be watching because Steven is a judge! For those who think Simon has class and showed that on the show...... where have you been hiding? Under a rock?? Sit back and watch perfection my dear..... watch the original ROCK GOD------- Steven Tyler.

Ellie, you said it best. It's bad enough that they are continuing the show without Simon, but even worse that they replaced him with this lowlife. Not acting like Simon is nothing to brag about, in every possible sense. Idol is toast; I don't even expect it to finish out the season. This isn't even Idol, it's just a cheap knockoff, and I'm not buying it.

SIMON COWELL HAS CLASS, STEV E TYLER DOE NOT. THAT IS WHY STEVE WILL NOT ACT LIKE SIMON. IDOL HAS GONE OR IS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN.
