AMERICAN Idol Fans Are “Concerned” For Ryan Seacrest.
The host displayed “concerned” behavior during the May 22 season finale.
The season 22 finale of American Idol began on May 22, 2022 on ABC.
The American Idol judges are the recent trio that audiences have come to know and love: Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry – all three even performed during the packed show.
But Ryan Seacrest has fronted the show since its inception in 2002, and during Sunday’s three-hour event, some fans were concerned about him.
Ryan exhibited “concerning” behavior multiple times as the singers competed and the show progressed; in fact, fans couldn’t stop noticing what was happening.
‘WE ARE ALL CONCERNED’
Unfortunately, Ryan’s eye seemed to twitch and twitch several times during the big broadcast, according to fans.
Wearing a blue blazer with slicked back hair, he also seemed to say a few words inscrutably and waved his hands at points as he spoke quickly between acts that viewers pointed to on Twitter.
One of them chimed in: “Am I the only one who notices Ryan Seacrest’s eye again? What’s going on?”
However, another asked: “What’s going on with Ryan Seacrest’s eye?? #AmericanIdol”
A third Twitter user commented, “The way we’re all concerned about Ryan’s eye rather than the finale is telling.”
As a fourth wrote: “Is @RyanSeacrest having eye problems again?”
A fifth accused him of mispronunciation, “@RyanSeacrest completely taking the name off @metheridge’s album.”
Another wrote of his unusual amount of chatter: “@RyanSeacrest what’s up with the nonstop?”
The finale was first limited to the top two singers – Noah Thompson and HunterGirl – country singer Noah, the season 22 winner.
Leah Marlene was eliminated after the first half of the final.
Fritz Hager and Nicolina were sent home last week after some great performances.
The finalists played original songs in tonight’s final, but last week they sang songs by former winner Carrie Underwood.
During the 2020 American Idol finale, fans became concerned for Ryan’s health after a segment saw the host curse his speech and appear unable to concentrate properly.
Someone then tweeted: “Something isn’t right with Ryan Seacrest. He’s acting weird. He’s making slurred words, his right eye is falling out.”
After the health scare, Ryan reportedly considered moving back to Los Angeles permanently, as the 45-year-old’s friends feared he was “overdoing it.”
“He has nothing against New York, but he feels he was healthier in Los Angeles,” a source told Closer Weekly at the time.
“Ryan admitted he has been exhausted since his health anxiety in mid-May. Ryan knows the show needs the hosts in the same room, but right now he’s dreading the thought of not living in California.”
Afterwards, representatives of the host released the following statement: “Ryan did not suffer any kind of stroke last night.”
Speaking to People, the rep added: “Between LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, American Idol, On Air with Ryan Seacrest and the Disney Family Singalong specials, he’s been googling three to four on-air jobs in the past few weeks and he’s been need rest.”
As The Sun exclusively reported last November, Ryan’s friends nearly forced him to go to Mexico with his girlfriend Audrey Paige, 25.
They felt he needed a “breathing break” from working so hard.
“He’s been go-go-go for 20 years and he’s almost 50…,” a close source told The Sun.
“We thought he would have slowed down and settled down by now. But that hasn’t been the case. He’s only gotten busier, so everyone is worried about him and has been for years.
“He works hard and works non-stop…he will often skip set meals and drink a green juice as a supplement so he doesn’t ‘wasted’ time sitting down and eating.”
A month after that getaway in Mexico, in which Ryan was photographed still taking phone calls, he caused a stir when he appeared to switch to a strange broth-based diet.
Ryan went to Twitter in late December 2021 to share a photo of his “Post Christmas Diet,” as he captioned the post.
There were three bottles on a table. They were labeled “first meal,” “second meal,” and “third meal,” respectively, and below that, they were each given a different type of broth.
“I hope this is a joke,” someone replied while other Twitter fans were simply concerned.
