Ryan Seacrest Explains His 'American Idol' Tears and Sign-Off
"American Idol" fans were left scratching their heads when misty-eyed host Ryan Seacrest ended the finale by saying, "One more time — this is so tough — we say to you, from Hollywood, goodnight, America. For now."
Although original producer Nigel Lythgoe has alluded to future incarnations of "Idol," Ryan has tweeted that his "for now" was just a case of dreading closure: "I didn't want to say goodbye last night. Thank you for 15 amazing seasons #IdolFinale".We will just have to wait and see if the powers that be decide about what, if anything comes next!
