The show starts with an apology for Steven Tyler's outrageous behavior last week, and assures it won't happen again, but I honestly don't know what they mean by that. He's always the perfect picture of a gentleman, as I remember it. And anyway, this was all recorded months ago so it means nothing, and you can only ever trust this show American Idol so far. Sometimes they do lie.
Actually, right before the credits there's a pretty cute thing where this nice-looking kid Jake Muck comes in and Steven goes, "You know what Muck rhymes with, don't you?" And the kid's like, "Duck?" And Steven yells, "Read my lips!" See, when it's self-aware grossness I don't mind so much. There's a way to be a weirdo uncle that can be okay. More of that.
