Ryan Seacrest Joins ‘Today’ For Hour of Cakes, Manners, and Earworms

April 23, 2013 10:10 am

What a morning for Ryan Seacrest!

Mike Trout Tells Ryan Seacrest His Baseball Dreams Came True On ‘TODAY

NBC’s Special Correspondent joined Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, and the entire TODAY gang for a fun hour as co-host. Ryan was able to put his love of music to good use as he interviewed American Idol castoff Janelle Arthur. He also helped introduce Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, who recently teamed up for a brand new album.

The co-hosts later came together to discuss the songs they simply can’t get out of their heads. After Matt burst out to Sting‘s “Roxanne,” Ryan revealed ‘Thrift Shop” by Macklemore is his personal earworm.

What Are Janelle Arthur’s Post-‘American Idol’ Plans?

Ryan was also able to show off his goofy side during several segments. The Idol host proved he has plenty of modern manners as the group got a lesson in how to behave. With a little help from Sandra Lee, Ryan competed in a competitive cake-off with Savannah. Finally, somehow and someway, Ryan ended up on top of a bed with Al Roker. If you missed any of Ryan’s segments, check them out below.
