Thursday night’s episode of American Idol was the last day of auditions before Hollywood Week, and as the judges panel faced the good and the bad auditions of the day, they got an unexpected surprise.
One contestant came before them in Oklahoma that definitively captured their attention…for all the wrong reasons. When the “female” contestant Pepper LaBeija came out, she/he wasn’t fooling anyone, and was revealed to be last season’s judge Steven Tyler!
The Aerosmith frontman just wanted to pay a visit to his old employer and made quite the entrance dressed head-to-toe in drag with a blond wig, red lipstick, skirt, leggings, high heels and a stuffed bra. Then in true Steven Tyler form, honked his fake bosoms and threw one at judge Randy Jackson before tearing off his wig for the big reveal.
The judges’ reactions as he walked out are priceless, as Nicki Minaj said “he’s a sight to be seen.”
