Ryan Seacrest Says He Would Miss His Cue Each Day on ‘Live’ If Not for This

In April, Live with Kelly and Ryan introduced a brand-new announcer to the hit morning show: media personality and radio host Deja Vu! And now, just a month later, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are wondering how they ever got by without her.

Last week, the producers of Live shared their daily behind-the-scenes clip from the day’s taping on IG. The footage featured the announcer introducing the episode, stating, “And now, here are Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest!” After a few seconds of dancing their way to their seats, the co-hosts opened up about how helpful Deja’s cue is.

“I don't really pay attention until I hear [Deja] say our names,” Seacrest admits in the clip. “And then I’m like, ‘That's our cue, it's time to go.’” Ripa had the exact same reaction. She added, “I watch the opening, and then I hear Deja announce and I’m like ‘Oh, that's us!’ And I need to move four inches from me leaning over here to here.”

And Ripa and Seacrest aren't the only ones who are appreciative of their newest team member. Fans and followers have continued to praise the radio host for her presence on the series. One user wrote, “Love listening to Deja announce. She has a great voice. Asset to the show,” while another added, “Deja you have a beautiful voice [heart eye emoji].”

Sounds like Deja is here to stay—and we’re glad to hear it!
