During “American Idol” Wednesday night, Ryan Seacrest was so ill that he was a game-time decision to even be in place to host the show. With this in mind, was there a replacement host in mind? It sure seems like it.
According to Deadline, “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley (who is going to be back on the network next month for a new season of the show) was considered along with executive producer Nigel Lythgoe to be a guest host if Ryan was unable to go. However, neither one of these two seemed to be sure things as host, as producers were reportedly strill scrambling minutes before the broadcast.
Ryan ended up looking a bit fatigued at the start of the show, but soon regained some of his energy as the two hours went on.
Do you think it was a good move for Ryan to still host the show?
