Would Ryan Seacrest Host 'America's Got Talent'? Here's His Answer!

Now that Nick Cannon has decided to quit his position as the host of America’s Got Talent, a lot of people are wondering who the new host could be and all eyes are on Ryan Seacrest.

The former American Idol host seems like a perfect choice now that the show is off the air and it would also reunite him with Simon Cowell, one of the original Idol judges who is now a judge on AGT.

TMZ caught up with Ryan and asked him if he would take the gig.

“First I’m hearing about that!” Ryan said when asked if he’s joining the show. “It’s a fantastic show. That show can be around forever. Simon created a hit.”

When asked to give a definitive yes or no on if he would accept the gig if he is offered it, Ryan declined to answer. Watch the video below!

Nick Cannon Quits 'America's Got Talent' After NBC Considers Firing Him Over a Joke

Nick Cannon has announced that he will not be returning to America’s Got Talent after eight years as the NBC series’ host.

The 36-year-old entertainer recently made a joke about NBC during one of his standup comedy shows and the network was reportedly considering firing him as it was a “breach of contract.”

“I write this from a deeply saddened and dolorous mindset. After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke,” Nick started off a lengthy letter on his Facebook account. “This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my ‘team’ that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment.”

Nick went on to say how there is “no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity” before saying that he does not see himself returning for this summer’s upcoming season.

“Not to get too detailed but this isn’t the first time executives have attempted to ‘put me in my place’ for so called unruly actions. I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head,” he wrote.
