On Feb. 10, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest will bring daytime TV’s No. 1 entertainment talk show back to the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® for “Live’s After Oscar® Show” in their salute to Hollywood’s biggest night.

The special will include the TV debut of GRAMMY®-nominated pop superstar Kesha’s new song, “Tonight,” off of her acclaimed latest album “High Road.”
Now in its ninth year, “Live’s After Oscar Show” telecast celebrates the night’s biggest stars and moments. The special is a ratings winner for the nationally syndicated program, ranking as its top-rated telecast of last season. In 2019, “Live” was daytime’s highest-rated entertainment talk show across all key measures.
“The success of ‘Live’ is a testament to the partnership of Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest,” said Wendy McMahon, president of ABC Owned Television Stations. “Their hard work, professionalism and infectious chemistry drive the show’s performance, making their connection to millions of people every day look effortless.”
“As we head into the ninth year of ‘Live’s After Oscar Show,’ Kelly and Ryan will once again bring our fans into the heart and excitement of the Oscars experience,” said Debra O’Connell, president and general manager of WABC. “Every single member of the ‘Live’ cast and crew has put forth a herculean effort to broadcast this live special, and being able to share this moment with millions of viewers and seeing the positive ratings makes all the time and energy worth it.”
On the heels of last year’s iconic show open with Kelly and Ryan’s salute to “A Star Is Born,” this year they are raising the bar with a loving and hilarious pre-taped homage to the 2020 Oscar-nominated motion pictures.
In addition, entertainment reporter, author and TV host MARIA MENOUNOS is on board to host a special Facebook Live pre-show, as Kelly and Ryan countdown to the live broadcast. She’ll also team up with “Queer Eye” star JONATHAN VAN NESS to break down the fashions and style trends for Ripa, Seacrest and the “Live” audience.
All of this is in addition to Kelly and Ryan highlighting the standout moments from the night before, with exclusive backstage interviews that capture the winners’ emotions minutes after they accept their Oscar statuettes. “Live” also showcases the iconic Oscars red carpet, capturing the glamorous looks of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities as they make their way toward the Dolby Theatre.
