Is it just us, or do a LOT of people watch American Idol to see the absurd wanna-be contestants rejected early in the very first episodes??

Because if Katy Perry's recent comments are to be believed, it sure sounds like this season's American Idol judges — Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie — are going to change things up in a MAJOR way!

Poor Kelly Ripa — things probably aren't going to work out for her as a professional singer!

The Live host decided to try her hand at American Idol auditions on Friday afternoon after being encourage by daytime co-host Ryan Seacrest, and as you can see (above)… uh… it didn't go so well!!!

Of course, the segment is still a must-watch, if only to see Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry literally falling all over each other in their judge roles to say something polite to Kelly as they offer feedback from her audition.

Some people just don't have what it takes for various parts of showbiz, and regardless of whether she grew up with "the voice of an angel," it's probably not going to get Kelly Ripa a ticket to Hollywood.

Aw, shucks!! LOLz!!

LOVES the segment!!! U???

Seacrest out… of a job??

As we reported, on Sunday, Ryan Seacrest awkwardly hosted E!'s Oscars red carpet amid allegations he sexually harassed former stylist Suzie Hardy.

While some celebs avoided the host, the 43-year-old managed to speak to a couple of A-listers including Whoopi Goldberg, Tiffany Haddish, Mary J. Blige, and Taraji P. Henson, who later denied throwing shade at the American Idol personality.

Despite its relative success, the pre-show received lackluster ratings, compared to last year's coverage.

According to Variety, Seacrest's segment averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49, and had 1.3 million viewers, which is down 43% in the key demographic and approximately 35% in total viewers from 2017's show.

In an interesting twist of events, Monday's post-Oscars episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan received a 3.0, making it the top syndicated talk show of that day.

Seacrest has repeatedly denied the allegations. Several colleagues — including Kelly Ripa – have come to his defense.

Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. Jokes About Bekah Martinez's Missing Persons Mix Up!

| Filed under: TV NewsLove LineRyan SeacrestKelly RipaHIGHlariousSafetyThe Bachelor/etteDaytime TV

Kelly Ripa is on the case!

As you surely know, The Bachelor's Bekah Martinez made headlines last week when it was revealed that she had made it on to a missing persons list — and only JUST got off it. While the pixie cut wearing starlet has since laughed off the missing persons snafu, on screen beau Arie Luyendyk Jr. was asked to weigh in on the mix up on Live! With Kelly And Ryan.

During a visit with Ripa and Ryan Seacrest for their show in the Bahamas, the 36-year-old was asked about Bekah's "disappearance." Although Arie didn't say much, he did joke:

"I think the PSA for that is call your parents."

Here's where Kelly swooped in and offered up her "theory" for this season. Per Ripa, Martinez was missing because she's the one Luyendyk Jr. ended up choosing. She noted:

"Bekah is the girl you choose, wanna know why I have this theory? Because she went into lockdown."

Sadly, this time, Arie kept control of his face and didn't reveal if Kelly was right. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the segment (above)!
