Steven Tyler has apparently said he will be a judge on American Idol next season.
A source close to the rocker said he had told them the news.
While an official announcement about the Aerosmith frontman has yet to come from Fox and the producers of the US show, "there is no reason to refute" Steven's account, the insider said.
Fox and producers FreemantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment had no comment on the report.
The Idol judging panel has seen the departure of Simon Cowell, as well as Ellen DeGeneres' recent announcement that she would not return for a second season.
