Sounds like Ryan Seacrest is singing a different tune now that his contract over at American Idol is almost up!

After 13 long seasons on the hit singing competition, sources are saying Ryan is ready to hang up that microphone for good!

Apparently the well known host is looking to move his career in a producing direction, a source is saying:

"Ryan is telling friends that this season of Idol is likely to be his last. He’s lost the passion for it, and desperately wants to do different things at this point in his career, like produce the Oscars and start developing more of his original ideas."

It's only natural to want to move on and do different things! Were we really expecting Ry to be a host forever?!

The source dished of Ryan's reduced involvement in hosting some of the bigger award shows this year. They said:

"Ryan’s reduced role in this year’s Emmys red carpet coverage is a clear move toward a life that involves less hosting and more producing. He wants to transition to behind the scenes more, and is getting fed up with the 'interviewing people' part of his job, when his heart is really in the work he does as a producer.

This season of Idol going to be a real endurance test for Ryan. Idol is holding him back right now, but it’s also the most money he’s ever been paid for anything, so he has to be a politician about it."

Wowza! No need to worry though, bby! There's more than enough time to explore other options!

We totally support you in whatever it is you want to do with your future!

    American Idol is not a show without Ryan. He's so much a part of the show. But he has to follow his heart. I love Idol and i feel if he goes the show will suffer terribiy and won't do another season.

    Ryan knows AI has run it's course and I'm sure he doesn't want to be there when that happens…so getting out at the end of this season would be a smart move. The show will be lucky if it lasts 1 or 2 years more. The show will plod on without Ryan, everyone can be replaced and they've proven that…..everyone living in the real world knows that, even Ryan. I'm sure Ryan isn't living under the delusion that the show will fold the minute he walks out the door. It's time for idol to pack it in anyway.
