Numerous blogs are reporting that Steven Tyler has officially signed with Fox to be a judge on American Idol, but as is the norm when sources are anonymous, no one can confirm it. So then the blogs write a lot of expository nonsense about why Jennifer Lopez didn't play along. Who are we to swim against the tide?

E! News, Deadline.com and the Hollywood Reporter all say Tyler has signed a contract, but details are non-existent. The network says only, "no comment," likely waiting for a giant reveal that will blow people's minds. Word is, however, that Steven signed for significantly less than J.Lo's reported demand for $20 million a year. He probably just wants health insurance in case he falls off a stage again.

Oh, and Randy Jackson is still in the running to be on the judges panel. Who else will say "dawg" after every single comment?
