Ryan Seacrest is last-minute hailing his taxi ahead of tonight’s airing of “American Idol.” The 45-year-old media mogul and “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host managed to squeeze in one last Instagram post before the 8/7c episode on ABC tonight, with a promo photo actually confusing fans as they thought Ryan was in New York City. On Sunday afternoon, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” producer posted a street shot showing him hailing down a cab. Check out the unzipped photo and reactions below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as the series Seacrest host makes him cry – it’s been three weeks since “American Idol” auditions were just too much for the hunky star as he called them “something else.”
Offering fans a little something else today, Ryan updated from a city street and looking super-dapper in a straight leg pair of black pants and matching tee, with a black quilted and puffer-style jacket worn unzipped while he hailed out a cab with one arm.
Keeping COVID-safe in a face mask, Seacrest waved up one arm as a yellow cab he seemed to have missed zoomed right out in front of him. “TAXI!” he wrote, adding: “We’re going to Hollywood. All new @AmericanIdol starts tonight at 8/7c on ABC! #HollywoodWeek.”
Quick to reply was the official “American Idol” account, writing: “Beware of the traffic!” Fans, meanwhile, have been responding. “Nice picture..remind me Breakfast at Tiffany movie..where Audrey Hepburn called for TAXI…❤ you Ryan…???,” one replied. See the photo below!
The current “American Idol” season, now its 19th, also sees faces Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Ryan serving as judges. While Ryan is showing his face here, he won’t be somewhere else. After 14 years of appearing on the E! red carpet, Ryan is bowing out.
“After 14 years of hosting E!’s Live from the Red Carpet I’ve decided to move on to new adventures. I’ll miss the whole crew that works so hard behind the scenes and of course my amazing partner Giuliana. Thanks to everyone for watching all these years,” he wrote.
With a five-day-a-week gig joining 50-year-old talk show queen Kelly Ripa on “Live!” it’s of little surprise that fans were quick to name-drop the former “All My Children” actress today. “Love you and Kelly,” one replied. Ryan made 2020 headlines for ditching Kelly for two days straight as he awaited the results of a COVID test, then thanking her for holding down the fort.
As to replies today, some fans were smelling the Big Apple. “Oh that’s New York right?” one asked. Speaking of Kelly Ripa, scroll for her nudie shower with oranges.
