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.
