Steven Tyler was asked by a TMZ photographer the other night if anyone should sing an Aerosmith song on American Idol.

Judges Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez have kept the show at the top of the television ratings this season after speculation there could be a major disconnect because of the departure of judge Simon Cowell. Simon Cowell will be debuting his new show on Fox-TV “The X-Factor” in Sept. 2011.

Even though Steven Tyler is telling contestants not to sing one of his Aerosmith songs on “American Idol”, his band is slated to perform live at some point this season. I would venture to guess the season finale.
