Having two singers on the judging panel made the second night of "American Idol" finale even merrier. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez left their judging seat on Wednesday, May 23 night to entertain the audience with their performances. The former rocked the stage with his band Aerosmith as the latter brought in her collaborators.
Tyler and his band performed live for the first time "Legendary Child", their first single from new album, "Music From Another Dimension". They continued their set by delivering their hit number, "Walk This Way". Their performances marked the band's first performance on the show since Tyler became a judge in 2010.
J.Lo, on the other hand, made her return to the "Idol" stage a few weeks after showing off her dance single, "Dance Again". This time around, the 42-year-old songstress worked up the crowd by debuting another fresh song titled, "Goin' In", with the help of Flo Rida and Lil Jon, and performing "Follow the Leader" with collaborators Wisin & Yandel.
The Wednesday finale itself was jam-packed with performances from many musical guests. In addition to Aerosmith and J.Lo, Barbadian singer Rihanna took center stage to perform "Where Have You Been". Meanwhile, other singers, such as Reba McEntire, John Fogerty, Fantasia Barrino and Chaka Khan, had a collaboration with this season's contestants.
