We’re Loving the New ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ Opening

When it comes to our favorite TV shows and programs, we often find it hard to deal with change. So, when we saw that Live with Kelly and Ryan had made a major update to their introduction portion of the show, we weren’t sure how to feel. Luckily, we absolutely love it.

ICYMI: Last week, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest welcomed a brand-new announcer to the Live team—media personality and radio host Deja Vu. On Thursday and Friday, the producers of Live shared behind-the-scenes clips featuring the new announcer introducing the episodes of the show.

During Friday’s backstage footage, the 50-year-old television personality and her 45-year-old co-host opened up about how excited they were for Deja Vu to join the team. “It’s so much fun watching you say our names because I know it’s our cue,” Seacrest said in the clip before Ripa added, “As you know change happens glacially around here. So, I’m excited.”

Lucky for us, Deja Vu was back this week and kicked off the show once again. After she revealed the date, she stated, “And now, here are Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest!”

Fans (including us) are hoping that Deja Vu is in it for the long hall. Followers quickly filled up the comments section of the video clips on IG showing their support for the new team member. One user writing, “Love the new intro!! Good energy!! Awesome!!” while another added, “By the way, LOVE your new announcer: dynamic and all-around excellent!”

And now that we’ve gotten to witness a few days with Deja Vu, we hope we don't ever have to watch an episode without her.
