Los Angeles The “American Idol” judges table is beginning to take shape: Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has signed a deal to join the Fox talent competition for Season 10.
A source close to the negotiations has confirmed reports that Tyler has signed on the dotted line to fill one of the vacancies left by Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres. Fox declined to comment.
Rumors that Fox was in talks with Tyler and Jennifer Lopez leaked out in July. But Fox and the producers have consistently declined to comment, saying no announcements would be made until the deals were completed. In an interview with the New Jersey Star-Ledger published Wednesday, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton said his band’s frontman was definitely heading to “Idol.”
