Ryan Seacrest Preps New Music Show

Stepping out for a fun filled night with one another, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough were spotted at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last night (May 2).

The "American Idol" host, who made his first-ever appearance at the gala this year, looked dashing in a black Burberry suit while his "Dancing with the Stars" alum girlfriend shined in a dark seal satin gown, alligator clutch, and a pair of black leather studded heels by the same maker.

The outing came just as Ryan recently spoke out about his plans to front another music themed show, this time with NBC, telling “It doesn’t make a lot of sense to host a show competing with Idol. I think it’s possible [to be the face of another show in the future], but at this point I certainly have not even gone down that road because Idol is in a great place, so I think we’re just enjoying that and we want to focus on that.”

The new musical concept, which is still in its preliminary stages, is just one of some 20 shows that Seacrest's production company currently has in development, many of which are with NBCUniversal.
