It’s Official: Steve Tyler and J-Lo will be judges on American Idol

After months of speculations and rumors, FOX has set up a press conference to announce the new judges of the show: Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler and Jennifer Lopez nonetheless.

During the press conference, one of the questions that both Tyler and Lopez got, was if they were going to maintain Simon Cowell’s spirit and be cruel with the contestants:

“How tough will I be? I believe in tough love,” Lopez said. “But I don’t think I will ever, as an artist myself, I could never be cruel to another artist,” she added. “I think there are definitely better ways to get your point across. I’ve mentored on the show before, so I think people have seen that and kinda can feel how I’ll be — or maybe they’ll be surprised.”

Tyler pretty much agreed with Jennifer: “We’re sure going to send some people home with broken hearts. But with all that we’ve been through in our careers, living vicariously through the young talent out there, it’s going to be hard. But it’s also going to be fun, because they’re stepping up to the plate, and so are we.”

I believe that Tyler and Lopez will bring great input and feedback to the table. It’s going to be a great season.
