American Idol: Steven Tyler will return next season, says Randy Jackson

Steven Tyler will return as an American Idol judge, says Randy Jackson.

"We'll all be back next year. I believe we'll all be back," Randy told George Lopez on his show Thursday night, the day after the Idol finale.

“It was a hot season,”
Jackson added. “We started something that was, like, y’know…our 10th year anniversary…so, going into season 11 we got a lot to prove and show again.”

Jackson spoke highly of the quality of the Idol contestants this season, as well as the camaraderie amongst himself and fellow judges Tyler and Jennifer Lopez.

Following his chat, Randy sat in with Lopez’ band, Ese Vatos, and KISS guitarist Paul Stanley for a version of “Rock And Roll All Nite.”
