Kelly Ripa Hamilton parody airs on live

The ‘Live’ Halloween broadcast was fire emoji

Posted on


Nobody does Halloween like Kelly Ripa. On Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly, the show’s host took on the iconic role of Alexander Hamilton from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. Along with current co-host Jerry O’Connell, sometimes co-host Matt Bomer, and a troupe of background dancers, Ripa performed an adaptation of the Broadway musical’s opening track, even breaking into song herself.

During the performance, the audience was treated to footage highlighting the host’s various killer costumes over the years, including Katy Perry, a Kardashian, and Maria from The Sound of Music.

“My game is Kelly Ripa Halloween,” Ripa, dressed as Hamilton, sang. “And there’s a million wigs I’ve never worn, but just you wait!” She ended the performance by striking the familiar pose from the smash Broadway show’s poster.
