Get ready for another “beautiful” season of American Idol: Fox confirmed to EW that rocker Steven Tyler and “dawg” Randy Jackson are indeed set to return to the judges’ table for season 11 of the popular Fox reality series. This information was expected (as Tyler signed on for multiple seasons), and is somewhat consistent with Jackson’s claim on Lopez Tonight in May that all three judges would return to Idol. Jennifer Lopez, however, has recently stated she’s “on the fence” regarding her Idol return, thanks in part to her work with her new reality project, Q’Viva.

So let’s congratulate Randy and Steven with two copies of a thesaurus.
