Ryan Seacrest

You Are NOT

the Next 'American Idol'

5/22/2014 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Seacrest SingingRyan Seacrest finally showed off his singing chops for the world to see ... and the world wishes he hadn't done that.

Seacrest, always on top of the latest musical trends, belted out the classic 1989 Richard Marx song "Right Here Waiting" ... and "American Idol" even unearthed Marx to sing it with him!

Say what you will about Ryan's singing -- and it was awful -- he didn't hide behind any audio gimmicks ... he straight up sang his heart out.

As the old saying goes -- those who can't ... host.

Bwhaha! Give him props for putting it all out there,in a day and age where autotune can make anyone a so called singing artist,its hard to tell the real talents from the fakes, so u have to just sit back and smile at some who knows he can't sing, put it out there in a singing contest!

Maybe if he was, we'd never hear from him again, like some past past "winners".

A little auto-tune and he will be better than most of the so called stars.

LOL! Kudos for being brave enough to do that. It took balls I didn't think he had. He knows he's not a singer...it was all in good fun. It was the first time I actually thought he was funny.

Ok so maybe that particular song he sucks at...maybe he'd be better at singing something gayer like too sexy for my shirt haha
