    It's official. The judges for the new season are:

    Randy Jackson

    J Lo

    Steven Tyler

    Thoughts?

    I'm a little crazy, but Steven Tyler is the sexiest man I've ever seen. Next to Andy Roddick. I think he'll be an interesting judge.

    JLo... I'm not sure. I can see her being too nice to everyone.

    I'm going to miss Simon's comments. They need someone to tell it straight, and I doubt the two new ones have the chops to do it.

    I like the idea of J lo joining the panel. I was really hoping Brett Michaels would join the group, I thought he would be a good fit.
    I am on the fence about Steven Tyler.

    How much diversity is there I have only heard really of J Lo and Randy because he was on the show already what is his forte?
    Who Is Steven Tyler?
    who is going to be the SOB?

    Steven Tyler was the lead singer for aerosmith. The guy with the HUGE mouth. I think I actually may watch it these season just to see the judges!

    (Head slap) Now I remember
    But still who is the most rounded in music?

    J Lo is Pop/rock
    Tyler is rock/pop
    All I know about Randy Jackson is he has been on the show for a while and he has worked with a lot of Pop artists (Bass)

    I think Jlo will surprise us and be the hard one. I dont know about Tyler. It should be interesting.

    Well, at least it will be 3 people who really know the music business and music. I think JLo will be sweet, but will be realistic, too. I can't stand looking at Steven Tyler, but he should at least provide a little craziness or something. The kids will probably look up to him.

    I don't watch the show. But, I heard an interesting interview on NPR that said American Idol is the one show that doesn't really need judges. Listeners know if they like a song upon hearing it, we make those decisions all of the time. And, the audience makes the final decisions anyway. So, why judges?

    I just found it interesting.

    Went on to say that shows like Top Chef (and others) NEED judges because the audience can't participate in the dining/tasting experience.

    Interesting that JLo and Steven Tyler have decided to jump aboard the sinking ship.
