    Steven Tyler has decided to depart his role as a judge on American Idol. Tyler served as a judge during the 10th and 11th seasons of the show, offering quippy commentary.

    "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," said Steven Tyler. "I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back--but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I 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 stars…’Idol’ was over the top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”

    Who should replace Steven Tyler?
