Steven Tyler Wins the Hearts of ‘American Idol’ Contestants

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

When Steven Tyler took over from  Simon Cowell there were more than a few raised eyebrows but that is all over now as contestants on American Idol last night were swooning over the recently appointed judge.

Last night’s premiere of Season 10 saw Randy Jackson being joined by new judges Steven and Jennifer Lopez, and the new crew has created some high criticism and praise.

The new judges seemed to have a difficult time….judging.

J. Lo started the show by throwing up her hands when she had to try and deliver bad news, The New York Daily News. “This is awful,” she said. “I can’t do this.”

But what they lacked in actual judging abilities, they made up for in star power.

Although J. Lo receivedvmost of the attention last night, it would appear that Steven was equally adored.

“Aerosmith is my favorite band” was a common phrase and Steven dished the praises right back.

“Just the right amount [of leg] showing,” Steven told one young contestant after J. Lo complemented her skirt. “That’s nice.”

Those type of comments may already have won the rocker the hearts of the  American Idol contestants and fans.

      American Idol: Michael Lynche is axed, Casey James survived

      Thursday, May 13th, 2010

      All power to Casey James as he survives yet another heat of American Idol while Michael Lynche, affectionately referred to as “Big Mike,” went home after the nationwide vote.  James, Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze went through to the Final Three.

      Lynche was nearly out about a month ago, getting eliminated by the vote only to be saved by the judges, who used their only such save of the season. Lynche has been among the most consistent competitors on the show, with a fluid, R & B style and infectious personality.

      He is immensely more talented than James – and probably Dewyze, as well – but it was Lynche and Bowersox squared off in the bottom two. That meant someone who didn’t deserve to leave was going home, and in the end it was Lynche who took the fall.
