Didn't quite know what to expect from American Idol last night...new season, new judges. It delivered! Specifically Steven Tyler. The Aerosmith front man is a bonafid Rock Star and it shows. And when he sang a bit with the contestants...pure heaven. I knew he was cool though. At an Aerosmith concert (about six years ago), I was lucky enough to get seats by one of the stage walkouts. The security guard told us we were "allowed to touch Mr. Tyler when he stood there, just not to grab or pull on him". That's Rock Star cool. He knew what the audience wanted, needed--a tiny part of his magic. And he let 'em have it, just so long as it didn't interfere with the concert.
It's early, I know. Only one episode has aired! But if last night is an indication of the rest of the season...count me in. What about you?
