steven tylers daughter says hes saving american idol

Always nice to see your children looking up to you, eh Steven?

Steven Tyler's OTHER daughter, Mia, believes that her father is saving American Idol.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"He's the funniest man I know. He's saving the show because it was kind of boring before. There's only so many times you can watch Simon be mean to people."

Guess we'll see if Steven's presence keeps viewers coming back when the U.S. X Factor starts up.

Do U think Mia Tyler is right? Is Steven saving Idol?

    He's surprisingly fun and makes a great judge! I wasn't expecting him to be good at all, so its a pleasant surprise. :)



  2. 2

    Why bring up X-Factor? That show is most likely gonna flop.



  3. 3

    He looks likes Janice Dickenson!!!!



  4. 4

    yesterday was the first time ive watch idol since Daughtry got voted off…and i gotta say, hes probably the only reason i watched the whole thing, i was always curious about what he would say next



  5. 5

    well he def took over paula's role. not sure if he's drunk or high but he sure is loopy.



  6. 6

    True true true! i thought american idol would suck without simon but now? dont miss him AT ALL it was kinda boring to be honest. i laugh so much with steven and jlo was also a great add to the show. props to the producers was a very WISE choice no more "past forward" for me



  7. 7

    Idol makes me cry all the time now but at least Steven and JLo's kindness makes sure there's some sort of a pay off in the end though. I like it.

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Totally agree with xoxo. I had no intention of watching American Idol with J.Lo as a judge but heard so many comments about Steven Tyler being good, reviving the show so I tuned in last night. Yep, I admit it. He's good, funny, a breath of fresh air and I may have a bit of a crush :o )



  9. 9

    I love him - he's sweet and funny. I was doubting the new cast, but I'm pleasantly surprised.



  10. 10

    I agree. He's hilarious and he makes the show enjoyable.



  11. 11

    shockingly, he and Jennifer Lopez are quite entertaining.



  12. 12

    Well of course!! This show is nothing without Simon, let alone Paula too. They made that show. Honestly just admit it this show is krapp and will fall soon. U know it. BRING ON X FACTOR!!



  13. 13

    I have never been a Tyler fan but he sure is THE best on this year's Idol…I do wish they would have gotten rid of Randy Jackson and make it an all-new group. J-Lo is surprisingly good too. I say next year bring in another newbie and get rid of the tired Dawg!



  14. 14

    ANYONE has a novelty factor to begin with. You can't compare him to so many seasons of SIMON. Paula was always good for the 'unexpected' By any new blood/dynamic revamps a show, as long as it is solid and the new threesome is. To say he is going to be totally responsible for the series no longer being boring is a bit of a leap after just a few eps.



  15. 15

    heck to the yeah. steven tyler totally saved american idol. simon was getting kinda boring. in other words simon ruined the show. they chose really good judges. jennifer lopez is so freakin awesome. she's gorgeous, and very talented so she was a really good choice and steven tyler is a rock legend. no one is EVER gonna take his place. i seriously love him. he's just hot. and he saved american idol for sure. he's just so funny. keep it up steven.



  16. 16

    In short, yes. Jennifer on Idol is just meh, but if they bring anyone back for next season…it should be Steven Tyler.



  17. 17

    I am actually really surprised as well how good the show is this season. I'm really enjoying the new judges, both Steven & JLo. I feel like the show is giving off a more fun, positive vibe and it's just what the show needed. Steven has been hilarious



  18. 18

    That's funny because I said the exact same thing to somebody today. I've watched this show every season from the beginning and the last couple years have been kinda blah for me but this season has been FABULOUS so far! I have to give props to Nigel Lythegoe for coming back to the show and bringing in these judges. Steven is WONDERFUL, J Lo is gorgeous and I enjoy her as well. Randy…well, I guess we have to have one consistent thing.



  19. 19

    I haven't watched American Idol since Clay Aiken season (yes a long time ago haha) and I only tuned in to the new season to see the new judges and MY GOD STEPHEN IS HILARIOUS. Cracks me up how he just hits on all the girls, how he sings along with all the bad people giving them hope. Uh I just love him on the show!

  20. fiera says – reply to this


    20

    Damn right he is!!!



  21. 21

    He's been a pleasant surprise, and funny!



  22. 22

    You know after seeing some clips, I have to say the show seems more enoyable. Everyone looks like they're having fun instead of Simon causing some sort of ackward moment between him and one of the other judges.

    It's actually a breath of fresh air and I was one of the ones who thought this was going to flop. With Steven Tyler in there, it's going to also help get some people that probably wouldn't have been considered other wise because simon was always obsessed with looks as well.



  23. 23

    For as much as I loved Simon & his direct comments I think this panel of three is the best yet! Steven is funny, Jennifer seems sweet yet funny and Randy is just as he has been, Randy.



  24. 24

    Yes…absolutely! It is so much fun this season with Steven, Jennifer and Randy. Simon was awesome and it was hard to think of idol without him. Last season with Kara and Ellen, it was just so wrong…painful actually to watch (had to mute often). But, yes, this has been a pleasant, welcomed surprise! Loves it all over again! :)



  25. 25

    Ha ha, @Realitychecked, I think I may be having a bit of a crush on him too! :P

    And I do think he brings so much more to the table, Simon was getting boring, while Steven is hilarious, gives good advice and he is really nice!



  26. 26

    Steven IS saving American Idol. He is so much fun to watch cause you never know what he will say or do. I loved with he told JLo his name is Steven not Steve. He is the only reason I started watching this season. Love the show.



  27. 27

    I LOVE STEVEN TYLER!!!!!!!! HE IS THE NEXT AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  28. 28

    ummmmmm what is she talking about I never get tiered of Simon!! But still he is extremely charming on the show, so while I wouldn't say he is better he is not worse and he brings something different to the show which is nice



  29. 29

    Im lovin idol again!! So glad they changed the night they are on too!



  30. 30

    American Idol is pretty much perfect so far this season! Whoever had the idea of putting Steven Tyler and JLo on was right on point.



  31. 31

    I actually luv the show more now with Steven and JLo beside Randy. I LMAO, the show is better now so far..I am happy Randy stayed and think they did a great job in getting Steven Tyler. This is the first time i've seen every show so far this little of the way in. It's a lot better and more relalxed withou Simons snyde comments. I think the show will do a lot better.



  32. 32

    Him and (I'm surprised to admit) Jennifer both! They're funny, sincere and they let people down with the warmest of hearts. The show has become something entirely new since the switch of judges, and even though Simon was 99% correct in his judgements, he was sometimes so mean it failed in being funny. American idol needed to become more of a positive show, thanx to Steven & Jennifer, that's what we're getting. =)



  33. 33

    I haven't watched Idol much since the first season, but I have to say that I've been checking it out this time around and Steven Tyler is one of the reasons that I would keep watching!



  34. 34

    Well done JLO for picking this show because i used to really dislike you lol.

    Her and Steven are brilliant.

    Hard luck perez the ratings went back up last night to 25 million.

    We know you are a Simon Stan hehe. You sad little man hehe



  35. 35

    YES! i used to be fan of america idol but after few seasons it was just boring! and i stopped watching it. Now i cant wait for the next episode



  36. 36

    I don't usually watch the show…caught a few scenes this week and was surprised at positive energy of the new judges. ST is def taking the show in a new, different direction. Part II of the equation- will people keep watching the show. It could transcend to the "best" it has been but the bottom line is ratings + production cost…Good luck to the new ensemble!



  37. 37

    I MUST SAY I TUNED IN TO WATCH THE SHOW FAIL WITHOUT SIMON/PAULA…WOW SUCH A SURPRISE STEVEN TURNED OUT TO BE…HE IS IN FACT THE SHOW…I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR HIM………GOOD CHOICE….



  38. 38

    I like how he is fun and truly LOVES music. You can tell how Steven LIVES for music. He inhales it and his genuine enthusiasm shows as well as his kindness. You don't see Passion like that in someone's work too often. He genuinely seems to appreciate the contestants.



  39. 39

    I didn't watch AI last year because it was sooooooo boring. Well I'm not J.Lo's fan either. But based on so many good comments about this AI season, next week I'll try to watch again who knows I might be amazed by Steven Tyler also and be his fan.



  40. 40

    YES, YES, YES… he's funny, compassionate, kind and knows how to interact with the contestants. A PERFECT fit!!! Now lets get rid of J-Lo and let's get Cher as a judge, and the show will be FANTABULOUS! [jmho]



  41. 41

    I Agree With Her!
    I Stopped Watching A.I. Because It Was Boring As Hell
    And This Year I decided To Tune In Just Because Of Him!



  42. 42

    I loveee loveee loveee Steven tyler as a judge… hes funny and can actually sing :) as for J Lo..meh i could do without her…



  43. 43

    He's made American Idol exciting to watch again, definitely.



  44. 44

    In the 80s, I actually picked up Steven Tyler and John Waite in Manhattan one morning - I was on my way to work and they were on the way to a recording studio. Even then, when he had obviously spent the night before partying, Steven Tyler was a very nice guy. I am so thrilled that he is now with American Idol. He is a perfect fit. Love J Lo too. I just still do not understand the Randy Jackson thing. Regardless, it is great to see Steven show his *real* side. He is a sweetheart!



  45. 45

    My fiance, the cynical critic who has never watched Idol, was forced to sit with me and watch. Well, the cynic now LOVES Steven Tyler, thinks he's really funny and passionate on the show, and he's excited to watch the series. Oh, and BTW, Cher WOULD be hilarious on the show too, as someone just wrote!



  46. 46

    She's got a good point. I would much rather watch someone funny and nice than someone who makes half the people leave in tears. Simon always made me hate the show because I just felt so sorry for people who really had hopes of getting on the show, only to be both rejected AND told that they're horrible singers. If Steven Tyler lets someone down, he does it gently, and even reprimands Randy when he's rude. I love him being a judge.
