Steven Tyler turned in a beautiful rendition of the national anthem before Sunday's AFC Championship between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens -- that's "beautiful," the word that lost all meaning last year when Tyler used it to describe pretty much every "American Idol" performance, good or bad. And Tyler's rendition of our anthem definitely qualifies as the latter. It may not have been the worst version ever (although I'll leave that up to you to decide), but we're talking about a legendary singer who is now paid to judge other people's singing abilities.

Burger King launched a national advertising campaign yesterday to introduce its new best-in-class BK menu items -- made-to-order salads, wraps, crispy chicken strips, smoothies and frappes.  Celebrity pitchmen for the rollout campaign include Jay Leno, Mary J. Blige, Steven Tyler, Salma Hayek and Sofia Vergara. This David Beckham spot has a cute payoff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f8qz2Ssr6c&feature=autoplay&list=PL63019AD07261F847&lf=plpp_play_all&playnext=4

Aerosmith wasn't kidding when it called its current album "Nine Lives." Like the lucky cats who seem to escape death over and over, Aerosmith has managed to keep its commercialfortunes alive for more than 25 years, despite a history that would have obliterated other bands.After a string of multi-platinum albums in the mid-'70s, the band suffered as drug use and internal quarrels took their toll. Sales fell off, guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford left, and by 1980, Aerosmith was a shadow of its former self.

Aerosmith is going on tour again this summer. The Global Warming tour, which was announced Monday, is the band's first North American trek in two years. Jiffy Lube Live is getting the show July 3. Cheap Trick is opening.  Unlike their contemporaries Van Halen, the band doesn't have a new album to plug. In fact, they haven't released new studio material in eight years, since "Honkin on Bobo. " While they've stayed on the road, they've mainly played South America and Europe in the course of the last two years.

"Everybody peaks in their own time," says Aerosmith guitaris Joe Perry. "With Aerosmith, I think that we were just fumbling along in the '70s, making all the mistakes just the right way, you know? And now we're building on it, and I think that we still have a lot left to say. I don't think that we've written our best songs, I don't think that we've played our best shows."Given Aerosmith's track record -- nine platinum albums, 13 Top-40 singles and a history that stretches back to 1970 -- Perry's statement might seem a tad modest.

"American Idol"kicked off its 11th season with a retrospective feel as it took us back to 2002 and reminded us of the moment when waitress Kelly Clarkson won the inaugural season. Video clips of Idol hopefuls as kids performing were flashed before our eyes.  But you know what everybody tuned in for: the auditions! Some notables: Sixteen-year-old David Leathers Jr. (who, let's be honest, looked 12) sang "Remember the Rain" and sounded as if he could have been the sixth member of the Jackson 5. And then Jennifer Lopez went on to ask him to sing a Michael Jackson song ... imagine that!

"The altitude's kinda giving me a bit of a headache. Does anyone got (an), Aspen ?" Oh, Steven Tyler. It was so funny I forgot to laugh. " American Idol " travels to Aspen, Colo., for the first time, where we learn about Rocky Mountain Oysters and witness the enigma that is the Magic Cyclops guy. Let us take a look at the notable auditions, shall we? Eighteen-year-old flower child Haley Smith has three jobs and loves nature. She sang "Tell Me Something Good" and I gotta say, great control, great voice.

The life of a pop star - as you may have imagined - is completely different from yours and mine. "I got to cut in line at the DMV," exults Clay Aiken. "Well, Steven Tyler [of Aerosmith] kissed me," says Kelly Clarkson, trumping him on the phone from Los Angeles, where the two American Idol stars are rehearsing for their joint concert tour, which stops Friday at the MCI Center in Washington. (Fellow Idol Ruben Studdard will appear at Morgan State University March 13.) The hugely popular Fox talent show catapulted the two singers from karaoke to platinum status.

Sometimes reading magazines is freaky-deaky, like when you keep seeing profiles of the same cool celebrity, and she keeps saying the same cool things, and her photos are all shiny and grungy, and you wonder:Is this a harmonic convergence of some sort?Are all magazines one in the great glossy sky, and is a new mega-monopoly about to dawn?Or is this some kind of ugly joke in which we are only pawns in an Antonio Sabato Jr. nightmare, the kind where he goes out in public without his clothes on?

WILLIE ROBINSON, 81 Blues singer "Weepin'" Willie Robinson, a blues singer who performed with Steven Tyler and Bonnie Raitt but also spent time homeless, died Sunday in a fire started by a cigarette he was smoking in bed, the Boston Fire Department said. Mr. Robinson settled in Boston in 1959, but by 2005 he was living on the street. Blues performers learned of his situation, held a benefit concert, and made sure he was fed and clothed.
