Ryan Seacrest hopes to get Super Bowl viewers as super-stoked as the loyal millions who tune in to Idol, when he hosts Fox's live pre-game special on Feb. 3. "We're going to cover it like a worldwide event, and also show its glitz and glamour," he shared in a conference call with reporters. "Celebrities look forward to the [game], lots of people walk the red carpet, and we'll cover it as it unfolds."

Of course, one big spectacle planned for this year's telecast - as first reported by Ausiello - is a performance by Idol judge Paula Abdul. Seacrest reveals that in a pretaped segment, Paula will sing her new single "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow" while Randy Jackson does just that. "Paula is apparently choreographing Randy," says Ryan. "He's been doing some sort of private Pilates because [it] is so demanding." - Matt Mitovich
