Over the last two weeks, we’ve noticed a pattern in the behind-the-scenes videos shared by producers on Instagram. Every time co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Seacrest step onto the stage and make their way to their seats, the American Idol alum puls out the chair for his counterpart.
For example, in today’s footage, the duo dances their way from backstage towards their desk. When they arrive, Seacrest walks behind Ripa to grab her chair and swivels the seat in her direction so she can sit down. Ripa then rotates the chair using her hands to return to the proper forward-facing position.
