On what her vision as a judge is, Jennifer Lopez told the crowd at the announcement, 'I'm looking for the next Michael Jackson. We will find the best new star of all time.'

Ryan Seacrest unveiled the new judges line-up of "American Idol" on Wednesday, September 22. As expected, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are the two new faces who would join original judge Randy Jackson in the panel when the show debuts season 10 in January next year.

"Season 10 is like the remix. It is like a new beginning for what 'Idol' is. These two are so talented...I think it worked out the best it ever could," Jackson said at the press conference after the announcement. The new gang however admitted that the one and only Simon Cowell is "irreplaceable".

When asked who would be the acid tongue like Cowell, Lopez said, "I believe in tough love, but I don't think I will ever, as an artist myself, be cruel to another artist. I think there are definitely better ways to say things." Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe added, "It's not about role playing. It is about being themselves."

Tyler also took the chance to explain his Aerosmith bandmates' reaction towards his new gig. "This was thrown on me. I looked on it as a great opportunity," the rocker said. "With the band - we have been married for 40 years. They are worse than women. ...At first they were jealous. They heard it through the press and not from me. ...I am sure they are real happy for me."
