The Set of ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ Looks Very Different Today

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are celebrating a very special episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan today—their pre-Oscars show. And the set looks like nothing we’ve ever seen before.

On Friday, the producers of the hit morning show shared their daily backstage clip from the episode. While we were totally expecting the usual footage of announcer, Deja Vu, introducing the two co-hosts and the 50-year-old TV personality dancing her way to her seat, we were surprised to see Ripa and Seacrest enter the stage on an Oscars red carpet.

In the video, the All My Children alum and the American Idol star are seen walking through two gold statuettes and down a carpet. For the occasion, Ripa looked chic in a black-and-white metallic midi dress from Maje while Seacrest donned a burgundy suit with a black undershirt.

“Wow, the biggest fan came for our Pre-Oscar Celebration! @gelmanlive,” the post’s caption read referring to the man clapping and jumping up and down in the footage. If you didn’t know, Michael Gelman is the executive producer of Live.

The special episode comes just two days before the 93rd Academy Awards will take place. Live will holding an after-Oscars show on Monday morning following Hollywood's biggest night. In fact, Ripa and Seacrest have been teasing a “love letter” to the world of movies—both past and present—in a separate clip on Instagram.

We can’t wait for Monday’s episode.
