Steven Tyler’s bandmates in Aerosmith may have been critical when their frontman joined “American Idol’’ as a judge in 2010 (remember when Joe Perry said that he didn’t want Aerosmith’s name involved with the show?), but they’ve obviously changed their tune. The whole band was in Los Angeles on Wednesday night to perform during the big “Idol’’ finale, during which contestant Phillip Phillips
was named the night’s big winner. Aerosmith played “Walk This Way’’ during the big show, as well as their new single, “Legendary Child.’’ The “Idol’’ finale had another Boston moment when Neil Diamond showed up to sing “Sweet Caroline.’’ The contestants from this year’s season chimed in with the Fenway Park “so good!’’ chorus.
