It’s Official: Ryan Seacrest Will Host American Idol on ABC

Seacrest in! We already heard that Katy Perry is going to be a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol on ABC, and today Ryan Seacrest confirmed on Live With Kelly and Ryan that he will return as host for the new season of the singing competition show, which will begin shooting this summer.

This will be one of Seacrest’s many, many jobs, including the aforementioned Live With Kelly and Ryan hosting job, as well as his continuing radio gig: “On Air with Ryan Seacrest.” He originally hosted American Idol since its inception, from 2002 to 2016. This man is literally a superhero (or at the very least a time traveler).

Seacrest warmed up for the gig a bit on American Idol’s Instagram:
