Steven Tyler Misses Role On American Idol

Steven Tyler says he misses his duties as talent judge on American Idol. The Aerosmith frontman said his time on the hit show was a positive one and he enjoyed working with the other judges and contestants.

"I miss it," Tyler admitted in an interview with "I miss J-Lo and Randy [Jackson]. It was a hoot."

"Two years was beautiful. J-Lo loved it, I loved it, Randy was great - especially sitting next to J-Lo every night, being close to that fire. She's beautiful. I do miss it. I wish it was Randy, me and Nicki Minaj. It would've been a hoot," he added.

Tyler and Aerosmith kick off an Australian tour this Saturday night in Sydney, and the trek will see the classic rockers play their first date ever in New Zealand.
