Steven Tyler returned to Fox’s American Idol on Thursday night, but he wasn’t wearing his usual attire. The Aerosmith frontman was dressed in drag.
During the Oklahoma auditions, Tyler pretended to audition as Pepper LaBeija from the Paris is Burning documentary.
"I'm going to judge your (bleep). The roosters may crow, but the hens deliver the goods. You know what I'm saying?" he told judges Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Mariah Carey, to which Jackson responded “What the what?,” USA Today reports.
“Do I go through to Hollywood or what?” Tyler asked after Minaj screamed “Steven Tyler!” Although he didn’t quite audition, he did throw a fake breast at Jackson.
He ended up getting a golden ticket, then he took off his wig and mooned the judges. Minaj declared when he left, “That is a sight to be seen.”
Hollywood Gossip reports that Tyler wasn’t the only whacky audition of the night, a woman auditioned with her ventriloquist dummy and others just couldn’t hold a note.
