Tyler said he wanted to join the show because “it’s being a part of something much bigger than yourself…I want to bring some rock to this rollercoaster and show if you’ve got the heart, the talent, the feeling to do this you could be the next American Idol.”
Lopez added: “I’m so excited..I’m looking for the next Michael Jackson.”
