Steven Tyler's Best 'American Idol' Quotes From New Orleans

'From my melodic sensibility, it was really delicious,' new judge tells one contestant.

Night number two of "American Idol" season 10 was shorter than the first, but just as sweet, particularly if you are a fan of new judge Steven Tyler.

The unpredictability and wackiness of the Aerosmith frontman is quickly becoming one of the most entertaining aspects of the show. "Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe recently told MTV News that Tyler will be on a tape delay when the show goes live, but even though he is already bleeped out accordingly during these first few weeks of audition rounds, his unique commentary and compliments deserve a recap of their own.

So without further ado, here are Thursday night's (January 20) top Tyler-isms:

» "You know what they say about a little hat?" Tyler asked to camera, wearing a tiny black top hat. "Little [bleep]." (We have no idea what he said, but because it was bleeped out by Fox, it had to be good/dirty, right?)

» "It's not cold; it was the warmth of his voice," Tyler said of the evening's first contestant to fellow judge Jennifer Lopez, who complained of getting goose bumps from the audition and the actual chill in the room.

» "Where did you get those lips?" he asked one young lady, followed by, "You had me sold from the second you laid eyes on me. Wait ... "

» "From my melodic sensibility, it was really delicious," he enthused after one performance. "I really liked your voice."

» "Yes." (Responding to a query as to whether he was familiar Mick Jagger's mouth.)

» "The sparkle in your eye is like, forget about it," Tyler said to a baby-face 15-year-old hopeful. "Looking at you, I'm closing my eyes and it's a work of art, a thing of beauty ... and I will finish that off with a double helping of ooh-yeah."
