Ryan Seacrest appeared on the Ellen Degeneres Show today to dish on Idol and his new show with Jamie Oliver, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.
Ryan admits that he has a favorite Idol, but he’s not going to say who it is, ’cause he’s got to stand next to them every week.
Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze both have good radio voices, according to Ryan, and he thinks Siobhan Magnus is “very good.”
He pointed at a photo of Tim Urban and said, “He just looks like that all the time, and he gets through every week.”
“He never blinks” says Ellen.
Ryan also admitted the show ran over 11 minutes recently, but they managed to get it back on track. Ellen complained that she’s the only judge who keeps her remarks short when asked, “I keep it short, and then other people talk and talk and talk..hey I had things to say!”
After the break, Ryan took some Idol questions from the audience, and addressed the “tension” between he and Simon Cowell. Since it’s easier this year to approach the judges’ table, Ryan loves getting in Simon’s face. (Oh, it’s fake).
In honor of Ryan’s 10th visit to the show, Ellen presented him with a fugly gold jacket emblazoned with a giant 10 on the back. Watch the video after the jump…
