Ryan Seacrest Was Joined by Not One, But Two Guest Co-Hosts on ‘Live’ This Week

While Kelly Ripa enjoyed some well-deserved time off this week, Ryan Seacrest was joined by not one, but *two* surprise guest co-hosts on Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Yesterday morning, the producers shared a behind-the-scenes clip on the show’s official Instagram account, which revealed that Luke Bryan would be filling in for Ripa. The caption read, “Live now with @lukebryan!”

In the short video, announcer Deja Vu introduces the 45-year-old host and the country singer as they walk onto the stage. As they greet the viewers, they’re both walking to the beat of one of Bryan’s songs, which is playing in the background.

Before they could approach their seats, Bryan motions for the American Idol star to sit first. But instead, Seacrest proceeds to pull out a chair for Bryan (what a gentleman).

Fans of the show were excited to see Bryan come on as a guest host. One person wrote in the comments section, “Good show, guys! Luke was amazing!” Another chimed in and said, “Luke was awesome,” with multiple red heart emojis.

And then earlier today, Seacrest was accompanied by another surprise co-host, who happened to be none other than TV personality Carson Kressley.

In the new clip posted to the Live IG page, the pair walks onstage and is greeted by loud applause. Before they can kick off the show, Seacrest takes a moment and has everyone admire Kressley’s stylish outfit—especially his silver sparkly shoes.

Some viewers couldn’t get enough of Kressley’s outfit in the comments section. “Luv the outfit [red heart emoji] Especially those shoes,” one person wrote. Another person said, “Love when Carson fills in!”

It’s never a dull moment when Bryan and Kressley are on the show!
