American Idol host Ryan Seacrest valiantly broke his singing silence Wednesday, May 21, to perform the iconic Richard Marx song, "Right Here Waiting," with the singer himself, Richard Marx. The duet, kept under wraps for weeks, was one of the highlights of the show's finale. View the performance below!

"Right Here Waiting" was also performed by contestant James Harrington, on the season finale of The Voice. The song reached number 6 on iTunes the following day.

The Voice performance was the beginning of a big week for Richard Marx. On May 20th pre-orders of his upcoming new album, Beautiful Goodbye began, on the 21st he performed with Seacrest on the American Idol finale, and on May 22 his first single from Beautiful Goodbye, "Whatever We Started," is available on iTunes. Also on May 22nd, the world premiere of the video for "Whatever We Started" will debut on Idolator.com.

For a preview of the video, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4ClbmioKkw. Beautiful Goodbye, Marx's first studio album of all new material in 10 years, will be released July 8th by Kobalt Label Services (KLS).

Fans may find Beautiful Goodbye is a bit of a departure from Marx's previous albums. According to Marx, he set out to make a deliberately sexy album. "The songs on this record were influenced greatly by everyone from Sade to Bebel Gilberto to various EDM artists to even Chopin. I'm known for romantic music in the past, but this music I wrote is all more sensual and cinematic, and the lyrics are more adventurous than I've been willing to go in the past."

Every track on the new album also incorporates an orchestral element, and the recording of the tracks was, according to Marx, "a thrill beyond anything I've done in the studio. Singing these songs brought out what I believe are the most effortless vocals of my recording career, so far."
