After just two years of being judge on American Idol, Steven Tyler is leaving American Idol. Steven Tyler has said “After some long… hard… thoughts… I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” he said in a statement. “I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back — but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band… IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it… Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”
Jennifer Lopez also reportedly is also leaving no official announcement has been made, but in a recent interview she seemed convinced, explaining, “I’ve just enjoyed it so much, but I am thinking that maybe it’s time for me to go and do other things that I really love to do, like film.
Update: Mariah Carey might step in to fill the void. She is in talks to be a new judge along with a “freshened-up” judges’ panel that the producers are currently working on.
