Tommy Lee: Steven Tyler Perfect Choice To 'Judge Karaoke'

August 22nd, 2010 10:24am EDT

Tommy Lee American Idol producers have struck gold by hiring Aerosmith star Steven Tyler as a judge on the show, according to rocker Tommy Lee - because he'll add a little excitement the TV talent contest lacks.

The Motley Crue drummer insists he'll be watching when Tyler makes his debut as Simon Cowell's replacement on the show later this year and he's sure he'll be a big hit.

He tells, "I know him really well, and he'll f--king kill it. Look, you're judging karaoke, you don't need to be a really super experienced judge for that. But it's nice to have an actual musician in there.

"He's fun, and he'll keep the show exciting too. He's a good guy for that, I think."
