According to Blabbermouth.net, Entertainment Weekly reports that Fox has confirmed that Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson are set to return to the judges' table for season 11 of the popular Fox reality series "American Idol".
Despite Tyler's insistence that Aerosmith would play the finale of the last season of "American Idol", Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said in an online posting that the band was "never asked by producers" to perform at the event.
He added that "Brad [Whitford, Aerosmith guitarist had] a gig that night with [Experience Hendrix]. [It was] not logistically possible."
Perry did write that Aerosmith is "looking forward to playing 'American Idol' next season when our new CD is out and we can prepare [for] a kick-a-s show if they ask us."
In other news, Steven Tyler has announced details of the UK release of his latest solo single. "(It) Feels So Good", which features vocals from ex-Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, will be released on July 11.
It follows the release of Tyler's debut solo single "Love Lives" last year. The track acted as the theme song for Japanese movie Space Battleship Yamato. Meanwhile, Aerosmith are set to hit the studio next month to work on a new album, which will be the follow-up to 2004's "Honkin' On Bobo".
