LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – “American Idol” judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will premiere the video of his first U.S. solo single on the television talent show next week, broadcaster Fox said.
Additionally, Lady Gaga will mentor the four remaining contestants on the top-rated show as they battle for a place in the finals.
The music video of Tyler’s new single “(It) Feels so Good”, will be shown on the “American Idol” results show on May 12, Fox said.
Tyler, 63, has been embroiled for almost two years in a feud with his Aerosmith bandmates that was further strained when he accepted a job as a judge on “American Idol” this season.
Tyler, who has just published a tell-all memoir “Does this Noise in My Head Bother You?”, told Rolling Stone magazine last week that he had to fight off a legal threat to toss him out of the band that he co-founded 40 years ago so that he could join “Idol”.

Relations between Tyler and his four bandmates hit a low in 2009 after he fell off the stage and broke his shoulder, forcing the Aerosmith tour to be canceled. The band responded by going public with threats to find another singer.
Tyler said last week however that he had written to the band members seeking a detente and a desire to return to the studio to record what would be the first Aerosmith album of new material since 2001.
