Rumors are making their way across the internet that Ryan Seacrest is looking for a nice, quiet and polite way out of the show that made him a household name, “American Idol”. Could you imagine the show without Ryan? Who could they ever hire to replace him? Brian Dunkleman?
A Fox network executive said in February that the show was winding down, so will Ryan jump ship? His two-year contract worth $30 million is set to expire and he is said to be making preparations in order to leave the hit talent competition. Thirteen seasons and he still feels no loyalty to the show – that’s quite the shame, isn’t it?
A source revealed, “Ryan is telling friends that this season of Idol is likely to be his last. He’s lost the passion for it, and desperately wants to do different things at this point in his career, like produce the Oscars and start developing more of his original ideas. Ryan’s reduced role in this year’s Emmy’s red carpet coverage is a clear move toward a life that involves less hosting and more producing. He wants to transition to behind the scenes more, and is getting fed up with the ‘interviewing people’ part of his job, when his heart is really in the work he does as a producer.”
The source added, “This season of Idol is going to be a real endurance test for Ryan. Idol is holding him back right now, but it’s also the most money he’s ever been paid for anything, so he has to be a politician about it.”

The show’s host Ryan Seacrest announced the bottom three as CJ Harris, Majesty Rose and Sam Woolf. It was then determined that Majesty Rose had to sing for her supper (ie: the judge’s save), so she sang for her life. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to make the judges swoon and she was sent on her merry way.

Mariah Carey signed on to what she believed would be a three-person panel on American Idol and revealed to Hot 97 in a new interview that she really hated her experience on the hit singing competition.
She likened her experience on the show to “going to work every day in hell with Satan.”
She said, “Nah, I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much — I was just disappointed.”
The best part of her time on the show was working with all of the contestants. She said, “I loved the contestants. And some of them that were so good – and really good people, you could tell – it was disappointing when they would, for political reason, not put people through. I’m like, ‘I don’t need to sit here and do this.’ I would prefer to just put this person in the studio, record a record with them. Or tell another producer, ‘Yo, you should produce this artist because they’re beautiful, they can sing, they’re talented.”
Did she sound like she was playing about the show?
