Seacrest left the university at age 19 and moved to Hollywood to pursue his broadcasting career.
In August 2005, it was announced that Seacrest would become executive producer and co-host of ABC's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
On December 31, 2005, Seacrest performed much of the show's hosting duties.
Dick Clark's role was limited by speech and mobility issues due to his recovery from a stroke.
The fact that he was seen with his former Idol stars could indicate that he, along with Jackson who spent 12 seasons as a judge on the show before leaving in 2014, will indeed be appearing one last time before the singing contest finally wraps.
Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest were all smiles when they slipped out of the London-based strip club Stringfellows at in the morning on Friday!
