Entertainment Weekly reports:
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines: The race is about to begin! EW has this exclusive first look at Fox’s official American Idol promotional poster — complete with a leaping Steven Tyler and a rather reserved Ryan Seacrest. Meanwhile, we have a curtseying Jennifer Lopez in a frothy, short skirt, while Randy Jackson seems to be surfing a wave of enthusiasm for season 10. American Idol moves to Wednesdays and Thursdays this season. It premieres on Jan. 19th. 

In other Steven Tyler news, the Aerosmith frontman jammed with Camp Freddy this past Friday night (December 10) at the second of four shows as part of the band’s fourth annual Christmas residency at the world-famous The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, California.
Camp Freddy is the Los Angeles-based “jam” group featuring Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Billy Morrison (ex-Cult bassist, current Circus Diablo vocalist), Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver, ex-Guns N’ Roses), Donovan Leitch (son of legendary folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction, Alanis Morissette). As in previous years, the Camp Freddy members are playing a different set list each night — December 3, December 10, December 17 and December 31 (newly added) — and has different guest musicians appearing with them at each of the four gigs. Here’s Steven jamming with Camp Freddy on Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love”:
