“Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I’ve worked with,” Jackson tells E! News exclusively in a statement. “I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life.”
Idol’s host Ryan Seacrest also reacted on Steven Tyler’s exit.
“I still can’t believe I shared the same stage with Steven Tyler,” host Ryan Seacrest said in a statement. “He is a brilliant artist and a true legend of rock-and-roll, and it was a blast to have him on Idol these last two seasons. As one of his legions of fans, I can’t wait to see him on stage rockin’ out with Aerosmith this summer.”
Stay tuned for more American Idol drama in my future post. SOMETHING is cooking up.
