Ryan Seacrest is Officially the Host of ABC’s ‘American Idol’ Reboot
As if you’re surprised…
The beloved host is coming back to hose the show that made him a household name, American Idol — this time on ABC!
“It’s genuinely hard to put into words what American Idol means to me,” Seacrest said in a statement. “I’m so grateful for the show and all the career and life opportunities it’s allowed me to experience. It’s been an incredible journey from day one. To be asked to return this year, at my new home at Disney|ABC, is an honor, if not a bit surreal. I believe ABC is the perfect home for ‘Idol,’ and I’ve every confidence the show’s legions of fans will love it – especially ‘Idol’’s best traditions of showcasing heartwarming stories, remarkable talent discovery, and, best of all, making dreams come true.”
Katy Perry is also set to be a judge on the hit show.
Ryan is also co-hosting Live with Kelly and Ryan on ABC, which he said was his “priority.” Thankfully, seeing as the reboot will be filming in New York City, Ryan wouldn’t have a problem crossing the avenues between takes.
