Twas hardly the same ol’ song and dance as the credits rolled on Thursday’s American Idol.
A memorable moment on the episode, taped at the Wynn Las Vegas resort, occurred when judge Steven Tyler decided to strip down to his skivvies and jump into the pool to the chagrin of his fellow judges.
“I’m gonna take my clothes off and go swimming,” the Aerosmith singer nonchalantly said … before doing just that.
“You are not! Are you really? Are you really?” Randy Jackson uttered in disbelief, while J.Lo shrieked “You’re crazy! Steven!”
“I’m coming mom!” the veteran rock star said after he jumped in.
Fun fact: 2012 marks the 25-year anniversary of Aerosmith’s comeback album Permanent Vacation, which spawned the hits Angel, Dude Looks Like A Lady and Rag Doll.
American Idol’s eleventh season returns Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.
