American Idol judge Steven Tyler is leaving his seat at the table. The news comes just hours after Jennifer Lopez announced her plans to leave Idol on The Today Show.
With Tyler leaving and Lopez threatening to do the same, the judges table looks mighty bare.
Tyler says the decision was made in order to focus on his band Aerosmith. "The next two years are dedicated to kicking some serious ass," the singer said in a statement. And he means business, as Aerosmith has a new album and tour all lined up.
So who take over Tyler's spot? Adam Lambert is rumored as a possible replacement.
Other possible American Idol season 12 judges include Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj.
