Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have been officially officially confirmed as this season’s American Idol judges alongside sole survivor Randy Jackson. Lopez said something about “nurturing the spirit to succeed,” which, great. Tyler made yet another attempt to break up Aerosmith, saying he’s “been on tour for most of my life in a band with four guys who judge me every day. Sometimes it hurt, but it only made me stronger.” Then he promised to “bring some rock to this 'roller' coaster,” which is just a shameless plug, really. Randy Jackson said, “Season 10 is going to be hot!" while pointing emphatically at nonexistent cameras. We don’t know, guys; we’ve been hearing rumors that Justin Timberlake might host? Just because Fox and the judges have issued official statements, does it really mean we have to stop speculating? Is summer really over?
