Steven Tyler's judging debut on "American Idol" last week has certainly impressed one important person - his daughter, Liv Tyler.

"I loved it so much, I loved him and was just glued to the television," she told FOX411's Pop Tarts ahead of the premiere of her new thriller "The Ledge" at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Friday. "I had goose bumps all over me, it was amazing."

And the "Aerosmith" rocker certainly seems to be relishing the new role, and recently told us that being father to three daughters stops him from being too cruel to contestants.

“I was nervous, sure. I was nervous about saying the right thing at the wrong time, or the wrong thing at the right time,” Tyler said. “It’s gotten easier. It does get easier. For the first couple (of contestants) I didn’t want to be cruel, I’ve got three daughters. I know people have a voice, they are born with a voice, but that’s not what we are here for. 

"Randy keeps reminding me that it is 2011, and ‘American Idol’ (has) high standards, a high bar, and they have got to go through that and I’ve got to be able to see the whole thing,” he added.
