Frontman and lead singer of Boston rock band Aeorosmith, Steven Tyler, has decided to leave American Idol. Tyler served as judge of reality television singing competition during 10th and 11th season.
FOX announced Thursday (July 12) that Tyler won’t be part of the show’s 12th season in 2013.
“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,” Tyler says 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.”
