Ryan Seacrest told Access Hollywood yesterday that not only is he coming back to American Idol as host for Season 13, he has no intention of leaving the show–EVER.
“I love doing it. …It’s what I know. Every day of my life for the last 12–almost 13–years,” he said. “I’ve gotten up to either host Idol or go on the auditions. So I’d like to do it as long as they’d like to have me.”
Well, we’ll see when his contract is up next year. If the ratings continue to dive, will it even be worth the busy TV mogul’s time?
We already know that Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey aren’t returning to the judges table. But when asked about Keith Urban, who has expressed interest in returning to the show, Ryan was evasive, “He was fantastic on the show,” Said Ryan. “But obviously there are changes and they have not determined exactly what that mix is going to be.” Hm.
Ryan also said he would love to spar again, once more, with Simon Cowell at the judges table.
