In a recent interview with xfinityTV.com, “American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe revealed that Aerosmith and Jennifer Lopez will in fact perform at some point during this season.
When asked if we’d see Aerosmith and J-Lo perform on the finale, Lythgoe offered an even better, more surprising response: “It will probably be before that, actually.”
Earlier in the week, xfinityTV.com reported that Aerosmith’s lead singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry had reached a détente, agreeing to record a new album sometime this summer and carve out some touring time before Tyler starts the next season of “American Idol.”
Tyler tweeted that the two frenemies had “just smoked the peace pipe . . . and are on our way to rock’in your -- worlds this summer by locking ourselves away somewhere w/guitars & drums.”
Fans can only hope that Nigel Lythgoe’s revelation actually happens.
