Ryan Seacrest Takes The Stage To Sing On ‘American Idol’
Ryan Seacrest has been at the helm of American Idol since the very beginning, but never like this!
On the May 21 finale, the famed host surprised the audience with a song of his very own!
Randy Jackson introduced Ryan, alongside his family. Ryan’s mother, father and sister were all in the audience to welcome him into the spotlight, and his mom even reminisced on his very first concert — so sweet!
Ryan opened his big debut, singing Richard Marx‘s ballad “Right Here Waiting.” Ryan looked very dapper in his tux, grabbing his mic, and then the curtains rose and there was Richard! Ryan put his best foot forward to duet with the legendary singer and they belted it out at the piano.
We love that Ryan was such a good sport! A man of many talents…
