When asked what his future plans were, Tyler, 62, said: "Recording an album and I'm probably going to be judge on 'American Idol'."
He later added: "I'm doing it. What do you think? I'm doing it."
Despite his claims, 'American Idol' bosses are yet to confirm the 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' rocker's appointment.
The website TMZ stated: "Sources connected with the 'American Idol' negotiations tell TMZ Kara DioGuardi has judged her last contestant on 'American Idol' - because she's been fired.
"We're told the show will be going back to a three-judge format and assuming all deals are finalised, the judge's panel will consist of Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler."
Singer-and-actress Lopez has reportedly been in talks with show boss Simon Fuller for several weeks.
