Steven Tyler Confirms He Won't Be Returning To American Idol As A Judge Next Season

Posted on Thu Jul 12, 2012 02:25 PM PDT

stylerlax051711_01_X17crop230.jpgSteven Tyler is officially saying goodbye to his judging stint on American Idol.

The Aerosmith frontman, who says he wants to focus more on his band, released the following statement:

    "After some long ... hard ... thoughts … I've decided it's time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit. I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I'm back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and I'm kicking the door open with my band."

Just this morning, Jennifer Lopez hinted that she would not be returning to the Fox show while be interviewed on The Today Show.

As for Idol creator Simon Fuller's thoughts on Tyler leaving, he said:

    "If you had told me 10 years ago he would be a judge on American Idol, I would have thought it impossible. ... I completely understand his desire to get back to his life as the singer in America's greatest-ever rock band. American Idol will miss him!"

Wonder if Randy Jackson will be returning next season?
