‘American Idol’ Spawns New Aerosmith Fans

Steven Tyler‘s seat at American Idol judge’s table is introducing him and his band Aerosmith to a new crop of fans.

The Hollywood Reporter says sales of the band’s 1994 hits album, Big Ones, has spiked 260 percent in the weeks since he joined the show. Other greatest hits albums and one of the band’s song’s frequently sung by Idol contestants, I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing, are also getting a shot in the arm in terms of sales. The band will be back in the studios soon for the first time since 2004.

Here’s another one of the band’s greatest hits, and possibly its coolest video. Caution: NSFW in spots.

Fox Makes Announcement About Upcoming ‘American Idol’ Announcement

In a move straight out of the LeBron James PR playbook,  American Idol‘s Ryan Seacrest will be hosting a press conference on Wednesday, September 22 to announce the panel of judges slated for next season. The news announcement about the press conference went up today.

“The fact that Fox is scheduling a media event for the (anticlimactic?) announcement bolsters those who believe that the network is merely trying to build buzz for the aging reality show,” Brian Stelter writes on the New York Times Media Decoder blog.

Among the list of judge possibilities are Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez (who at one point seemed out of the running because she was being a diva but is now rumored to be signed for $12 million), and Elton John.  If the show is trying to build buzz, mission accomplished.
