Get ready to hear "This is American Idol!" for at least two more years.

Host extraordinaire Ryan Seacrest has been tapped to once again take his place centerstage when Fox's long-time singing competition returns for season 14 next year, sources confirm to E! News. The man of many, many hats has reportedly signed a new, two-year deal with Fox to host the series.

News of Seacrest's return comes less than 48 hours after American Idol announced their audition dates for the reality singing competition's next season, which will hit 15 cities across the country and kick off on June 18 in Minneapolis.
