Just when you thought American Idol had floated back out to sea, ABC may be throwing a lifeline. The Dancing With the Stars network has reportedly made a bid for the 2018 revival where FOX and NBC couldn’t, but Ryan Seacrest might finally be too busy to participate.
Well, believe it or not, Ryan Seacrest was actually in need of a new gig after that whole American Idol reboot fell through. So it is, that the ubiquitous host may have found a new Live! gig, replacing Michael Strahan alongside Kelly Ripa.
It wasn’t terribly surprising that FOX would say goodbye to American Idol after so many years, but word that NBC might look to revive it alongside The Voice came more unexpectedly. Now, FOX is reportedly bidding for the rights to bring American Idol back on its own, almost exactly as we remember it.
If you're a fan of American Idol, don't worry, Ryan Seacrest will return with Jo-Lo, Keith and Harry in January.
Since the American Idol Tour Bus stopped in Amarillo recently, to audition singers for the upcoming 14th season of the hit Fox show, a few of us decided that 'we' should audition for Ryan's hosting gig.
Sounds like there may be two Jennifers on the 'American Idol' panel this fall. Jennifer Hudson reportedly signed on to judge the somewhat struggling Fox juggernaut, and now former judge Jennifer Lopez may be rejoining the judges' table.
