Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest dropped by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to chat about the new season of American  Idol.

Part 1 is mostly the gang goofing around. Yeah, we got chemistry! We got it!. Part 2 gets into what we might look forward to from the Season 10 talent.

Basically? More pimping of 15 year olds and gushing about Milwaukee as some kind of hotbed of awesome talent. Nigel Lythgoe has mentioned the FANTASTIC talent in Wisconsin a few times. Most recently in a tweet over the weekend….

Check out the entire interview after the jump. In anyone can figure out what the eff Steven Tyler is talking about…let me know!

Video after the JUMP….

    Awww, I love that Randy acknowledged Ricky Minor! Finally!

  • platoken

    Ugh I can’t wait for the new season! I have been counting down the days…just 8 more!

  • Grammie Kari

    Well, there certainly does seem to be some kind of chemistry between them! I hope the best is yet to come.

  • LoveDaRocker

    Just saw the first video and have three comments:
    It seems they are trying too hard to show they’re having fun.
    Have anyone noticed that Randy always (not only in this video) tries to be cool by just piggy-backing on what other people say?
    JLo is a beautiful woman.

    Have anyone noticed that Randy always (not only in this video) tries to be cool by just piggy-backing on what other people say?

    THANK YOU! my God, he does that every time. it bugs the heck out of me. i keep waiting for him to make a snappy remark, but he doesn’t have the wit to do so.

    i can’t believe the season starts next week. since i don’t have cable i have to rely on mj and rickey to keep me updated. thanks!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    It looks like a good, fun group of judges. Also, I can see JLo being the HBIC, even if Randy has the title of “head judge”. ;)

  • stellamarris

    i also was very happy ricky minor was acknowledged!
    really looking fw to this season, steven tyler is so cool, it makes the whole show less duchy..
    over seas and so happy i can watch the show through MJ!

  • J9BT

    That was really fun! They didn’t even need Jay Leno to be there!

    I think Randy actually contributed this time. Yes, he does tend to piggy back on comments, but he came out and acknowledged Ricky Minor which was very nice, and he was funny talking about the single they should do with Ryan speaking on it!

    I’m looking forward to this season. I think it will be fun.

  • lili_anne7

    I’m excited about this season. The judges definitely have chemistry, and I’m especially looking forward to Steven Tyler. I think he will be hilarious.

  • Allison

    looks promising

  • MaryS-NJ

    LOL! Steven Tyler wearing a pimpcoat on Jay Leno is made of WIN! I hope he dresses like that during the season. Sure beats the phoned-in look of Simon’s plain grey/white/black t-shirts.

  • abbysee

    I like them all. Love Steven and Jennifer. I think if there is any problem this year, it will be in the talent and the tweaks made, not the judging.

    I think Randy actually contributed this time.

    I did too. I saw interaction, and original thought, so yay Randy.

  • Cat22

    I wonder if Steven Tyler watched last season because it sounds like he’s looking for Crystal Bowersox!!!!!

  • Joyed

    Haha, was it just me or when Randy said something about how now that Simon was off the show they were saving money cause they weren’t paying his enormous salary, and Steven said kinda sotto voce “Not exactly” – lol, I wonder if that means his salary is ridiculous:)

    I think Jennifer will be amazing if she focuses more on the being honest thing she describe – loved her line about “this business is not right for you”! – than the projecting friendliness. She can be friendly if she wants but I like her more when she isn’t trying to be too sweet.

  • lili_anne7

    I wonder if Steven Tyler watched last season because it sounds like he’s looking for Crystal Bowersox!!!!!

    Well he said himself that he knew nothing about the show. So my guess is that he never watched the show before.

  • Indigobunting

    Milwaukee is a hot bed of talent :) , though known more for indie rock, punk rock and we all know how popular that is now.

    Been a long time since someone made it big from there like the Bo Deans or Violent Femmes.

    They may have just been surprised at what Milw. (second rate to Chicago in so many minds) had to offer, but we all know they are pimping someone, lol.

    Looking forward to this season!

    Was simon ever ” officially” HBIC before? Lol I kno he was,but was his job description actually head judge?

  • windmills

    That was fun watching. Group interviews are always going to be a little awkward. This one was fine, they didn’t seem like they were trying to force things too much. I think JLo was talking to Steven Tyler when they came back from break which is a good sign.

  • Mtlfan

    they are a great group! I think next season will be very fun to watch

    Milwaukee is a hot bed of talent

    Hopefully someone from Wisconsin makes the tour so they play the Bradley Center & not Summerfest (like they did last season). Danny Gokey made the top 3 and it was very exciting around here that season. I’d love to see a winner from Wisconsin!

  • Indigobunting

    Hopefully someone from Wisconsin makes the tour so they play the Bradley Center & not Summerfest (like they did last season).

    You and me both Sparkles. Summerfest is incredible; but the two for one lame give away for S9 was awkward, and the Bradley center is best for an Idol tour. The S8 20k Bradley C would have been sold out (it was 95%) if it wasn’t for the additional Madison tour just 1 hour away. That was an awesome show :) So glad Danny was able to get the producers to come here for auditions, and I also hope we get a wisconsinite for the tour.

    Although your Summerfest recrap was as sublime as ever,lol!

    Didn’t watch the clip to see his expression, but if he said that my guess is he may be saying JLo’s salary & perks are ridiculous :lol:
    .

    Yeah, good AI singers can come out of Milwaukee ;)

    I wonder if Steven Tyler watched last season because it sounds like he’s looking for Crystal Bowersox!!!!!

    Or being from Boston, he could have been thinking of a certain Cape Cod songstress from last season who can really wail and just does her own thing regardless of what others think.
