Steven Tyler: The Breakout Star of American Idol

Posted by Angela on January 23rd, 2011

I haven’t decided whether to start doing “American Idol” recaps just yet, but I did manage to catch the first two episodes and come away with one cohesive thought: Steven Tyler is easily the funniest judge to have ever appeared on the show. He wasn’t afraid to openly ogle and make creepy comments about the contestants, and nothing seemed to make him happier than singing/clapping/slapping the table along with the contestants.

Here’s just a sampling of some of Steven’s best comments. And yes, I’ve been keeping track:

Voicing his appreciation for contestant Rachel Zevita:

“We oughta let her in the door. Water that flower ’cause I think it’s gonna grow.”

To Randy as a contestant with a nice butt exits the room:

“Were you lookin’ down, boy? I saw you lookin’ down?” [fist bump]

To a contestant with big silver stars on her bikini top:

“What’s with the jujubees on your oohoohbees?”

In all honesty, I don’t even remember the context of this quote:

“Well, hellfire, save matches, f–k a duck and see what hatches.”

To contestant Michael Perotto:

“Did you eat a lot of paint chips as a child?”

Quoting the movie “Cool Hand Luke” when a contestant started singing again after receiving criticism:

“What we have here is a failure to communicate.”

To contestant Jacee Badeaux:

“The sparkle in your eye is like, forget about it. Looking at you, I’m closing my eyes and it’s a work of art, a thing of beauty … and I will finish that off with a double helping of ooh-yeah.”

All I can say is that Steven’s crazy is rivaled by no other, not even the cough medicine-overdosing Paula Abdul. I may well end up following “American Idol” just for Steven’s wise words this year. What did you think of Steven? And let us know if you feel strongly about us running “American Idol” recaps!
