Ryan Seacrest to Host ABC’s American Idol Reboot

We still don’t know a great deal about ABC’s plans to bring back American Idol, but at least we now know who the host will be. Ryan Seacrest, who hosted the show throughout its record-breaking run of dominance, announced yesterday that he will be hosting the ABC reboot. Seacrest will join an Idol cast that also includes Katy Perry, who was recently named a judge.

The announcement came on Seacrest’s *other* show “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” Have a look:

The American Idol revival will air in 2018 with contestant auditions beginning in August. I will be sure to continue to post updates on future announcements, so stay tuned everyone!

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
