Steven Tyler is the next American Idol judge, pending a few things.

The Aerosmith frontman was rumored to be one of the new Idol judges and now the 62-year-old rock star is hinting to fans that the rumors are true.

Steven told People after a concert in Las Vegas that he would “probably” be doing Idol after asked about what his future plans are for this year:

[My plans include] recording an album and [I’m] probably going to be judge on American Idol.

There have been multiple rumors about who the new Idol judges would be after Simon Cowell left the show to focus on an American version of The X Factor, new judge Ellen DeGeneres quit, and Kara DioGuardi was reportedly fired. Rumored replacements include Steven and Jennifer Lopez. Stars like Diddy and Bret Michaels were also said to be vying for a prestigious judging position.
