Seacrest is back!
Ryan Seacrest confirmed Thursday (July 20) he will once again serve as the host of American Idol. Seacrest made the announcement alongside his co-host Kelly Ripa on their daytime talk show Live With Kelly and Ryan.
Seacrest joins Katy Perry as the only announced members of the rebooted show. Perry signed on to be a judge back in May for a reported $25 million.
The “Chained to the Rhythm” artist took to Twitter to react to Seacrest’s news.
“I’m spicy, @RyanSeacrest is seasoned,” Perry wrote. “All the right ingredients are coming together on @AmericanIdol.”
