Steven Tyler leaves Idol, J.Lo wants out too

American Idol’s judging table will look so boring without Steven Tyler’s leopard print. The Aerosmith singer has departed the show to pursue his music career, yet again.

Not only do we have to worry about who’s going to make it to the top 10; now even the judging table is in jeopardy!

Let’s do this chronologically. First, Jennifer Lopez waltzed her fine self onto the Today Show and broke our hearts by revealing she wants to leave American Idol!

“Maybe it’s time for me to go,” the singer stated. “It’s been on my mind a lot, as you can imagine. And now it’s like, do we continue on this journey? I’ve loved it so much. I enjoy the show so much… It’s a tough decision either way.”

What are you saying? What do those words even mean? You can’t leave; we’ve been through so much!

But it gets worse… Also today, FOX confirmed that Steven Tyler is ditching Idol as well! Oh the humanity, what is happening?

“After some long…hard…thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” the Aerosmith front man said. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back — but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air, and I’m kicking the door open with my band.

“The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass — the ultimate in auditory takeover. On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and Way Beyond the StarsIdol was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it… Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”

Heh. So, to tally up, Steven Tyler out; J.Lo wants to follow him. This makes our little hearts ache with sorrow. We will miss Tyler and his cray-cray.

Are you sad or glad to see him go?
