VIDEO: Aerosmith – Joe Perry surprises Steven Tyler on American Idol

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler turns 64 on Monday.

Amercan Idol gave Tyler some birthday love Thursday night, with host Ryan Seacrest setting things up.

“We couldn’t get through tonight without acknowledging somebody’s birthday this weekend,” began Ryan. “And a cake would be too obvious, so…this seems more appropriate.”

And with that, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry surprised Steven - and everyone else - by appearing center stage, with guitar in hand, to play a song for the occasion.

“I couldn’t decide what to get you for your birthday this year, so I guess this’ll have to do,” said Perry.

And with that, Joe led the Idol contestants and studio audience in a singalong of “Happy Birthday.”

Joe, Steven and the rest of Aerosmith continue work on their new studio album, which is expected later this spring.
