Steven Tyler
'Dream On' on 'American Idol'

After months of promises, American Idol judge Steven Tyler finally performed on the show's season finale. Backed up by members of Stone Temple Pilots and a string section, Tyler delivered a powerful rendition of the Aerosmith classic "Dream On" that came out sounding like a message to all the show's contestants – past, present and future. The most amazing thing about this performance is that even when cut down to just two minutes, the song still comes across as a massive rock epic.
