  1. No I don’t think Ryan Seacrest should leave. He was just being honest. Any of them could leave at any time. That’s the chance they take when they enter the contest. Ryan’s a nice guy. He gets to know each contestant. He’s nice to all of them.

    1. I think Ryan was just being honest in how he feels about the outcome rather if they will make it or not but it’s depends how well they do on their performance but that has nothing to do with Ryan but he is a great guy but go and be in his shoes 👞 and do his job for the day and see how much pressure you are under

      1. Ryan has done an amazing job on Idol from day one. He is a great host. always a smile on his face, and very fair with the contestants. Why would anyone want to put blame on a man that does such a great job..

    2. I 100% Agree with Your Comment About Ryan and He Did Nothing Wrong, but Think a Change in Judges Should Happen!

  3. American Idol needs Katy gone from the show. I’ve quit watching for two years now because I don’t care for the judges and really dislike Katy. The show is failing and falling fast. Clean house and try again.
