It feels like 2002 again!

Ryan Seacrest had us all laughing out loud when he shared a funny throwback photo from the set of American Idol on Instagram. In the snapshot posted on Thursday, April 6, the show's host can be seen posing with original judges Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson. Where's Paula Abdul though?!

"They’re gonna kill me for posting this #TBT," Ryan, 42, captioned the pic of the three. Randy and Simon along with Paula started from Season 1. Simon left the show in 2010, Randy in 2013, and Paula in 2009.

In a previous interview before the show's final season last year, Ryan revealed he was originally asked to be a judge on the show before eventually becoming a co-host alongside TV personality Brian Dunkleman. Brian left after one season.

"I said to [the producers], ‘Who's the host?' They said, ‘Well we've already got a host, but we could audition you to be the co-host,'" Ryan recalled. We can't imagine him in any other role than host!
