Aerosmith frontman and American Idol judge Steven Tyler has revealed that he didn’t actually want to do American Idol. Tyler joined American Idol at the beginning of this, the tenth season as one of the judges but he claims he had his doubts due to his poor opinion of the talent competition.
Steven explained, "I never wanted to do American Idol. I turned around and said, 'The show sucks. How can kids be [an] American idol? They haven't played clubs, they haven't paid their dues, that haven't done what we did'." He has, however, made a U turn after experiencing the talent first hand, "I was wrong. They are out there, we just have to wade through a bunch of them.” said Tyler.
The finale of American Idol managed to rake in an incredible record breaking 122.4 votes to decide who the eventul winner would be. Unfortunately for Lauren Alaina it was Scotty McCreery who received the majority of the votes and was crowned the American Idol 2011.
