NEW YORK (CBS) The verdict is in: Steven Tyler is the new fan favorite on "American Idol."
The show's 10th season premiered to much fanfare on Wednesday with a new logo, new opening theme and - most importantly - Tyler and Jennifer Lopez joining Randy Jackson behind the judges' table.
On Twitter and across the web, Tyler was overwhelmingly hailed as the show's new favorite judge. The 62-year-old Aerosmith frontman won over viewers by singing along with the auditioning hopefuls and unleashing nonsensical phrases like "Let her in the door, put water on the flower, 'cause I think it's gonna grow."
"I think you got the what it is," he told another "Idol" auditioner.
Lopez filled Paula Abdul's position as the nurturing, encouraging presence, while Jackson now acts as the voice of reason, speaking with an air of authority that hasn't been seen in seasons past.
