Don't judge — American Idol knows what it's doing!

Aerosmith, Metallica, The Pretty Reckless, & More Bands Pay Tribute To Chris Cornell — Watch All The Performances

no title

The sudden death of Chris Cornell rocked his fellow musicians to the core.

Dozens of tributes have poured out in the wake of the Soundgarden frontman's tragic suicide, most being of the musical variety.

Aerosmith, Metallica, Train, and U2 were just a few bands who paid homage to Cornell on stage over the weekend, dedicating performances to the late rocker and delivering heartbreaking covers of his own hits, like Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun.

Musicians like Chris Daughtry, Ryan Adams, and Ann Wilson of Heart also paid tribute to the late legend with their own covers. But the most emotional tribute came from Taylor Momsen, who nearly broke down performing Audioslave's Like A Stone.

Seeing as Momsen's band The Pretty Reckless opened for Soundgarden the night Cornell took his own life, we can't imagine how she got through this performance.

Ch-ch-check out all the videos (below) to see the moving tributes.

Taylor Hicks Seems Shady About Chris Daughtry's New Judging Gig On American Idol

Taylor Hicks shades Chris Daughtry about judging on AI.

Someone sounds a little jelly!

Taylor Hicks seems just a tad bitter that he wasn't asked to be a judge on the American Idol reboot, especially since fellow AI alum Chris Daughtry was given a spot alongside Katy Perry.

The Season 5 winner appeared on the Domenick Nati show Tuesday, sounding less than enthused about Daughtry's new role, as he said:

"I think a winner should be [a judge], personally. Because, what you go through to win the show is a lot different than what you go through when you're third or fourth, you know, or fifth. Or tenth. If they were going to have a judge that's from the show, if they're going to have someone from the show who was actually a contestant, I would feel like a winner would be the best suited."

Mmhmm. Tell us more, Tay.

The 40-year-old also said he'd be interested in a judging role but that the show should've waited a few more months before its return.

As for whether he's been approached for a judging gig? He said:

"I'm just gonna be tight-lipped about everything. I'm not confirming or denying it."

Guess we'll just wait and see!

Would YOU wanna see Taylor as a judge???

Ryan Seacrest Is Definitely Returning To American Idol — But Who Are The Potential Judges??

no title

It wouldn't be American Idol without Ryan Seacrest!

As we reported earlier this month, the radio personality has been in talks to host the ABC reboot which could air early next year. Fast forward to this week, the new Live! host is reportedly very close to reaching a deal, meaning he is definitely in!

While Katy Perry has been confirmed as a judge, many are wondering who will take the remaining spots.

According to sources, the network is hoping to fill the slots with Idol alums, which could include Carrie Underwood, Adam Lambert, and Chris Daughtry (although other sources say he hasn't been contacted).

While there were rumors that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin could become a coach, a rep for the British crooner says there's "absolutely no truth to this."

Either way, it's going to be an A-list panel!
