On his radio show Friday, Ryan Seacrest revealed that on Thursday night’s “American Idol” results show, the crew didn’t know Enrique Iglesias was going to invite audience members to dance atop the judges’ extension stage.

“I thought we would have a plexiglass disaster,” said Ryan as he recounted the show that sent rocker James Durbin home.

“[James was] joined after the show by all the judges and his wife on stage,” after the show ended explained Ryan. The mood in the studio was solemn but supportive of James’ journey.
