“I always thought that in order to become an American Idol, or any kind of idol, you have to pay your dues,” American Idol judge Steven Tyler said on ‘Late Show,’ referring to the years of national touring he did with Aerosmith. “But, today’s a different world.”
“I prefer the process that gave us you to this process,” David Letterman said of ‘American Idol.’ “By the time you’re ready, you’re ready, and we have the honest, legitimate stamp of approval.”
Tyler responded, “I tend to agree,” which was enough to get uproarious applause from the crowd.
