But it turns out the cringeworthy moments aren't over just yet. In one of the most recent episodes, host Ryan Seacrest had a very awkward conversation with Katy Perry where he didn't appear to realise they were actually on live TV.
Seemingly ignoring Katy telling him they were on air, Ryan said that her mom was pretty. Katy, who looked a little taken aback, jokingly said that she hoped the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
Ryan then looked at the camera and back at Katy, still not appearing to realise they were live on air.
When Katy said "not yet", Ryan replied "wanna talk about it?". Lionel Richie can be heard in the background then saying "Don't start, don't start."
An awkward silence followed where Ryan looked like he realised they were actually on air.
Confirming nobody really knew what was happening, Katy asked if they were live.
People on Twitter reacted to the awkward moment, saying they felt uncomfortable watching the exchange.
Some even called the moment creepy and asked if Ryan's questions were appropriate.
