At the time, Tyler was celebrating his 64th birthday. To show how special he was for the entire production team, they gave him a little surprise on the show.

With host Ryan Seacrest seated beside him in front of the judge’s table, Seacrest explained towards the end of the show that they prepared something for Tyler, and it was their way of wishing one of the world’s biggest rock icons a happy birthday.

Tyler was asked by the host to turn around and face the stage. When he turned, he saw the show’s top 10 finalists during that season standing on the center of the stage.

Perhaps Tyler had already assumed that the contestants were going to sing to him since each of them held microphones.

Although, he was stunned when the hopefuls parted and revealed a special guest. It was Joe Perry, Tyler’s Aerosmith bandmate.

Holding his guitar and dressed in all black, Perry stepped forward and grinned at Tyler.

“I didn’t know what to get you for your birthday, so I guess this’ll have to do,” said Perry on the microphone.

As the camera focused on Tyler, he appeared as if he was on the verge of tears. His fellow judge, Jennifer Lopez, was hugging him and seemed to be very happy for Tyler.
