Steven Tyler Says He's the New American Idol Judge – Probably

American Idol contestants better start singing with some “Sweet Emotion” because Steven Tyler is apparently coming to town.

Though Idol brass hasn’t confirmed the Aerosmith frontman will be joining the judging panel, Tyler spoke of his future endeavors Saturday following his Las Vegas concert.

Commenting briefly before entering a concert afterparty at Studio 54, Tyler said his future plans include “recording an album and I’m probably going to be judge on American Idol.”

Rumors of Tyler, 62, joining the restructured panel began surfacing last week. At his Las Vegas concert at MGM Grand, Tyler even poked fun at the rumors telling fans, “The rumors are true ... I’m pregnant with guitarist Joe Perry’s baby.”

It’s likely Tyler will be joined on the judging panel by Jennifer Lopez, a source told PEOPLE. Revealing little about his probable decision to join Idol, Tyler simply said, “I'm doing it. What do you think? I’m doing it.”
