Did Ryan Seacrest Suffer A Stroke During American Idol Finale?
It would have been a terrible ending, and we all were worried about this. When Ryan Seacrest appeared on the finale of American Idol, fans suspected something to be off about him. And the judgment was quite apparent since we all could see it as well. Fans believe that the host Seacrest suffered from a stroke during the finale after looking at how he was conducting his part. They could not help but notice that the host’s eyes looked bigger and he was also slurring his speech a little, which ultimately raised the question if he was feeling okay?
Ryan Seacrest Responds To The Fans About His Health
A clip has been circulating on social media showing that Ryan Seacrest was probably in the worst of conditions during the filming of American Idol. The first part of the clip shows when he was feeling okay. But the next part shows his face to be a bit flushed, his eyes bigger than usual and he was slurring when speaking. The concerns about his health grew further when the host skipped yesterday’s (May 18) ‘Live’ episode. Have a look at the viral video below:

Thankfully, we heard from someone from Ryan Seacrest’s side to talk about what was really going on. His rep came on and told media that:
“Ryan did not have any kind of stroke last night. Like many people right now, Ryan is adjusting to the new normal and finding work-home balance, with the added stress of having to put on live shows from home.”
Seacrest also co-hosts “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and did not appear for the Monday episode as well. For that, his rep told the media that he needed some rest so he took an entire day off. Thankfully, by the end of the American Idol finale, Ryan Seacrest was back in his normal and healthy-looking shape, which might have settled all worries.
For those unaware, Seacrest has been the host of the mega singing competition since 2002!
