This is rad!
Steven Tyler plans on doing more than just judging during the American Idol season finale on May 23. The legendary frontman and the rest of Aerosmith are performing their newest single!
It's a little surprising too because Tyler's decision to join the hit reality show caused some serious tension within the rock band. In a Rolling Stone interview from 2010, guitarist Joe Perry said:
"It's his business, but I don't want Aerosmith's name involved with it. It's a reality show designed to get people to watch that station and sell advertising. It's one step above Ninja Turtles."
Obviously he has changed his tune and probably saw the benefit of performing on one of the highest rated television shows on the air. Since their latest album is the band's first since 2001's Just Push Play, we imagine the guys realized the band can reach an entirely new generation of fans.
This kinda makes the season finale one that can not be missed! Will U be watching?
