Really, who cares.
Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are both off of American Idol. Did they quit? Or were they fired? Given the rapidly-sinking ratings of AI, and the rapidly increasing share of viewers over the age of 50 I would be that they were given the boot as part of a forthcoming reboot.
The best thing about Tyler was watching his reaction to the other judges. That was always good for weird-looking face.
Apparently over the weekend, Aretha Franklin said she wants to be an AI judge. Which makes me wonder, what if they had a rotating cast of judges? Randy would stay, maybe add another permanent judge, and then the third would be a music superstar, depending on the theme/genre for the night.
