VIDEO: Steven Tyler performs on American Idol finale

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler delivered the debut live performance of his first country single, “Love Is Your Name”, on the season 14 finale of American Idol on Wednesday.

Tyler performed the tune on the day of its release, before teasing a snippet of “Walk This Way” as a segue to a cover of Janis Joplin’s “Piece Of My Heart” with third place contestant Jax.

The singer has been in Nashville since January working with songwriters on material for his debut solo album on Big Machine Records’ affiliated label Dot Records.

Next month, Tyler will regroup with Aerosmith for the Blue Army Tour, with summer dates beginning in Glendale, Arizona on June 13.
