Tonight, Ryan Seacrest is left to perform a thankless task. On national television, in front of a massive viewing audience, he will be forced to break the news to
Katharine McPhee one of the two remaining American Idol contestants that they will not be the next American Idol.
Thankfully, Ryan has a lot of experience delivering bad news.
Need proof? Just read this great McSweeney’s piece by Sarah Schmelling and you’ll see that throughout history there hasn’t been a better bearer of bad news than Seacrest. As if there was any doubt.
