It all started when the reality competition show personalities were guests at the Wynn Las Vegas resort last week as they filmed an upcoming episode of 'American Idol.' During their stay, they decided to catch a performance of the venue's in-house show 'Le Reve,' which featured underwater dancers.
Apparently, the Aerosmith rocker was so inspired by the aquatic show that he decided to shed his rock star duds to do some swimming stunts of his own. 'Idol' host Ryan Seacrest recounted the story during a cast interview on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' on Friday (Jan. 20), explaining, "We flew back from Vegas last night, we were shooting an episode there of 'Idol' ... and at the end of a final performance from a contestant, I heard this scream from Jennifer Lopez and I looked up and she was standing over the 'Le Reve' pool. It's a water show, so she's standing over the edge and screaming, looking down at a naked body in the water!"
The surprise skinny-dipper turned out to be Tyler, who chimed in and joked, "Hey, I'm from Boston! I love water ... Well I sat at 'La Reve' all week and I just thought, I've watched the show all week and I'm a water guy." Then, the recently engaged singer revealed his naughty ulterior motive, "I just wanted a good excuse to take my clothes off in front of J.Lo."
When asked exactly what he expected the outcome of his very public display of affection to be, Tyler broke out in song with Frank Sinatra's 'High Hopes,' "'Cause we had, high hopes...!" The rock veteran later explained that the stunt was all in good fun. "I live to try to make her blush. I live for it, oh yeah!"
