Steven Tyler Is The New Paula Abdul On ‘American Idol’

Steven Tyler

Craig Berman of Today.com shared his thoughts on Steven Tyler’s judging role on ‘American Idol’, comparing the Aerosmith frontman to Paula Abdul thanks to his nearly always positive responses to the ‘Idol’ performers. Berman writes:

The problem is that Tyler really isn’t saying anything at all when he judges. He’s just sitting there playing the role of the Rock Star Emeritus with tenure presiding over a class of graduate students, spicing up his comments with a joke or a risqué phrase to stay relevant to the younger generation. While Jackson is at least occasionally making an attempt to be critical and J.Lo seems to see herself as their coach, Tyler talks like his central aim in the show is to be everyone’s friend.
