Steven Tyler leaving American Idol

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Steven Tyler is leaving "American Idol" to put rock 'n' roll first.

Tyler said he's leaving the show after two seasons to rededicate himself to the band he fronts, Aerosmith.

The rock star said he loved every minute on the hit Fox singing contest, but "it's time to bring rock back."

Tyler's departure leaves original judge Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, whose future with the show is cloudy.

Lopez said Tyler's departure will definitely play a role in her decision to stay.
