Season 22’s finale of American Idol kicked off on May 22, 2022, on ABC.
But Ryan Seacrest has fronted the show since its inception in 2002, and during the three-hour event on Sunday some fans were “worried” for him.
Ryan displayed “concerning” behavior multiple times as the singers competed and the show progressed; in fact, fans couldn’t stop noticing what was happening.

‘WE’RE ALL WORRIED’
It sadly seemed that Ryan’s eye was twitching and drooped multiple times during the big broadcast, according to fans.
Wearing a blue blazer with his hair slicked back, he also appeared to say some words inscrutably and wave his hands around at points as he spoke rapidly between acts which viewers pointed out on Twitter.
One chimed in, “Am I the only one noticing Ryan Seacrest’s eye again? What’s happening?”
However, another asked: “What’s going on with Ryan Seacrest’s eye?? #AmericanIdol”

A third Twitter user noticed, “The way we’re all worried about Ryan’s eye instead of the finale is telling.”
As a fourth penned, “Is @RyanSeacrest having eye issues again?”
A fifth accused him of mispronunciation, “@RyanSeacrest totally beefing the name of @metheridge’s album.”
Another wrote on his unusual amount of banter, “@RyanSeacrest what’s with the non-stop?”
Leah Marlene was eliminated after the first half of the finale.
Fritz Hager and Nicolina were sent home last week following some amazing performances.
The finalists have performed original songs in tonight’s finale, but last week they sang songs by former winner Carrie Underwood.
HOST OF CONCERNS
During the 2020 finale of American Idol, fans were left concerned for Ryan’s health after a segment saw the host slur his speech and appear unable to focus properly.
One tweeted then, “Something is not right with Ryan Seacrest. He’s acting strange. Slurring his words, his right eye dropping.”
Following the health scare, Ryan reportedly considered a permanent move back to Los Angeles as the 45-year-old’s friends were worried he’s “overdoing it.”
“He has nothing against New York, but he feels that he was healthier in Los Angeles,” a source told Closer Weekly at the time.
“Ryan admitted he’s been exhausted since his health scare in mid-May. Ryan knows the show needs the hosts in the same room – but right now, he’s dreading the thought of not living in California.”
Afterward, reps for the host released the following statement: “Ryan did not have any kind of stroke last night.”
Speaking to People, the rep added: “Between LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, American Idol, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and the Disney Family Singalong specials, he has been juggling three to four on-air jobs over the last few weeks and he’s in need of rest.”
They felt he needed a “breather” from working so hard.
“He’s been go-go-go for 20 years now and he is almost 50…” a source close told The Sun.
“We thought he would have slowed down and settled down by now. But that hasn’t been the case. He’s only gotten busier so everyone is worried about him and has been for years.
“He works hard and works nonstop… he will often skip solid meals and drink a green juice as a supplement so he doesn’t ‘waste time’ by sitting down and eating.”
A month after that Mexico getaway, in which Ryan was photographed still taking calls – he caused a commotion when he seemed to switch to a strange broth-based diet.
Ryan took to Twitter in late December 2021 to share a photo of his “Post Christmas diet,” as he captioned the post.

It featured three bottles on a table. They were labeled “first meal,” “second meal,” and “third meal” respectively, and under that, they were each labeled a different type of broth.
“I hope this is a joke,” one replied as other Twitter fans were simply just concerned.
