American Idol's tenth season premiered this week and although Simon Cowell, Ellen Degeneres, Kara DioGuardi are no longer at the judges' table, some believe the spirit of the old Idol lives on.

Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler now sit beside returning judge Randy Jackson at the table, and some are saying Steven Tyler's quirky ways are totally reminiscent of an original Idol judge -- Paula Abdul.
Critics are saying that at the New Jersey and New Orleans auditions this week, Steven proved that, just like Paula, he could spot musical talent and entertain America with his clever remarks like, "Did you eat a lot of paint chips as a child?"
The American Idol auditions continue in Milwaukee next Wednesday at 8 p.m. on FOX.
