And so American Idol begins....

Ready for American Idol action? It's begun, Gorgeouses! Will you watch in January?

I definitely will (especially since Canada's Got Talent, with adorable Martin Short, doesn't debut until March) — the show's rival, Simon Cowell's X Factor, just isn't doing it for me. You?

So check out this photo of Steven Tyler (63) and Jennifer Lopez (42) arriving at the Civic Center in Pasadena, California, earlier today. They're on Day 2 of the American Idol Hollywood auditions, and things already look intense.

This eleventh season of the show debuts January 18. Randy Jackson (yo, yo, dawg!) will join Jennifer and Steven on the judging panel. And Ryan Seacrest will host. Looking forward to it?

Seacrest OUT! (That still cracks me up...!)
