Ryan Seacrest will officially be returning as the host for the American Idol reboot. (But can you imagine it without him?) The extremely busy host was offered at least $10 million for the gig.

Ryan was the original host for 15 seasons of the show when it aired on Fox. The reboot will now find its home on ABC. Ryan released a statement about the honor of being asked back.

“It’s genuinely hard to put into words what American Idol means to me. I’m so grateful for the show and all the career and life opportunities it’s allowed me to experience. It’s been an incredible journey from day one. To be asked to return this year, at my new home at Disney|ABC, is an honor, if not a bit surreal. I believe ABC is the perfect home for Idol, and I’ve every confidence the show’s legions of fans will love it – especially Idol’s best traditions of showcasing heartwarming stories, remarkable talent discovery, and, best of all, making dreams come true.”
