Car wont stay running

Today I got in my car after work and tried to turn it on.
When I turn the key it starts but as soon as I let go of the key it turns off.
I had to drive home holding the key foward so it wouldnt turn off.
Theres no CEL or anything. I have no idea whats wrong with it.
Has this happend to anyone before or does anyone know what could be wrong with it and what I have to do to fix this?
Thanks.

Bad Ignition switch. I think someone said its like a $35 part or somethin like that. It costed me like $12 for my old cutlass.
