Steven Tyler Returns To ‘American Idol’ — In Drag!

Steven Tyler-Idol

Dude looked like a lady!

Steven Tyler returned to AMERICAN IDOL last night — in full drag.

The Aerosmith rocker, who surrendered his judging seat after two seasons “surprised” Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj during auditions taped last fall in Oklahoma City.

“What the what?!” Jackson exclaimed as Tyler’s alter-ego “Pepper” walked out for his fake audition.

If the new IDOL crew wasn’t tipped off before hand, they surely figured out Tyler’s identity when he exclaimed “The rooster may crow, but the hens deliver the goods. You know what I’m saying?”
