When asked about his bandmates’ reaction, Tyler said, “I’ve been judged all my life. The band went on tour and we were off tour. I saw this as an opportunity to have some fun and to sit next to J-Lo here. And Randy.”
Tyler also spoke about the show’s process of seeing applicants in each of the cities where Idol looked for talent this year.
The audio on the first video to surface (below) is a little out of sync, so it’s easier to listen to than to watch. I’ll keep my eyes open for a better version and repost when available.
