“I don’t want to spoil the Aerosmith until the finale,” said Durbin after Tyler gushed about his spirited performance.

“You save it and I’ll come up and sing it with you,” Tyler quickly replied.

To seal the deal, the Santa Cruz native approached the dais and shook Tyler’s hand.

Keep watching “American Idol” Wednesday and Thursday nights on FOX to see if Tyler makes good on his promise.
