‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ Experiences Technical Difficulties Today—But the Co-Hosts Keep on Smiling

Just because Live has been on the air for over 20 years doesn’t mean that the hit series is immune to technical difficulties (not to mention, we’ve seen a few mishaps with the cue cards). Take the beginning of today’s episode, for example, when announcer Deja Vu appeared to be having a microphone malfunction.

On Thursday, the producers of Live with Kelly and Ryan shared their daily behind-the-scenes clip of Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest getting ready to kick off the installment. At the beginning of the video, Deja is seen (yet barely heard) speaking into the microphone.

It’s clear that something wasn’t quite right, and so the announcer tried to speak into the equipment for a second time. At this point, the 50-year TV personality, who was twirling her skirt on stage, noticed Deja’s struggle and even gave her a smile and a laugh.

Luckily, after the camera panned over to the All My Children star and the American Idol alum showing off a few more dance moves, the sound system seemed to have fixed itself. “And now, here are Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest,” we finally heard Deja say into her equipment. Third time’s a charm.

And we have to say the radio personality handled the whole situation like a true pro (we simply would have panicked) and her hard work definitely did not go unappreciated. Fans and followers shared their love for Deja in the comments section. One user wrote, “I start my day with you and Ryan everyday and now Deja all of you are awesome,” while another added, “GOOD MORNING DEJA .. what a voice and smile you have.”

Keep up the great work, Deja.
