The season 8 “American Idol” champion said that the overall show was good and entertaining enough though he found “Aerosmith” front man most interesting. Kris Allen said that he found Steven Tyler “awesome” in the show and he is waiting to see more of him. When the media outlets asked him, how both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez would have influenced him if they had been the judges of his winning season, the singer said that the whole thing would have been superb. Kris Allen said that the whole situation could have been “weird” enough as Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are in the music industry for years and singing in front of them would have a bit difficult.
