Live TV can be tough. There’s no rehearsal and at any point, you can blow it. You’d think Ryan Seacrest is used to being the host of a live television show, but apparently, he’s not.
When American Idol was coming back from a commercial break, the cameras cut to Seacrest hanging around the judges’ table. Katy Perry noticed they were back on live television and whispered to Seacrest “We’re back” but Seacrest ignored it and continued his conversation with Perry saying, “Your mom is pretty.” He went on to tell Perry, “You are too, but you’re not a mom yet.”The conversation got even creepier when Seacrest offered to help Perry become a mom.
Eventually, everyone realized they were back on air and it was business as usual, but not before fans around the world were completely creeped out by the host’s comments. Personally, I found it hilarious.
katy perry literally had to tell ryan seacrest that the cameras were rolling and he continues to hit on her, asks if she’s a mom and says “you wanna talk about it??” after she says no. what’s going on i’m uncomfortable #AmericanIdol pic.twitter.com/ichf6TWGoh

That delay on @AmericanIdol when no one knew they were back so Ryan Seacrest asks Katy Perry if she’s a mom and if she wants him to help with that made me feel so uncomfortable. Is that an appropriate question? I don’t think so.

I can’t believe Ryan Seacrest just insinuated that he wanted to impregnate Katy Perry on live television whilst under the impression they were on a commercial break omg wtf #AmericanIdol

Did anyone else just witness the super uncomfortable comments Ryan Seacrest just said to Katy Perry when he didn’t know he was live? #AmericanIdol
