Jenna replied: “Oh my gosh, what do you say we pack our bags, we take our show on the road? That means it’s time for another edition of Hoda and Jenna’s Trippin’!”
During the segment, they spun a wheel on TV that would announce their next destination.
After the wheel spun for some time, it finally landed on a purple space.
“We’re going to New Orleans!” Jenna announced as the stage was filled with ticker tape.
The pair will be attending the 2023 Jazz Fest in the musical city.
“Y’all, this is the most fun. It stretches over 2 weekends and starts April 28!”
Hoda called it a “the finest music festival,” naming artists like Kane Brown, Lizzo, Ed Sheeran, and The Lumineers as attendees.
For those looking to attend, the official Today website confirmed that the pair will be broadcasting two future shows live from New Orleans, Louisiana.
The pair will be in town to celebrate 2023 Jazz Fest with a live audience.
Fans are invited to join the audience when the taping happens on Monday, May 1.
There will be two tapings for a first and second show.
Those who have been looking for a way to see their beloved morning anchors live and in person can attend.
TELL ME MORE!
Meanwhile, Hoda left Jenna and their Today show guests completely stunned after making a shocking confession on Monday.
The 58-year-old host has decided to share a secret that she’s “never said out loud” before.
On Monday, Hoda and Jenna had on some of the stars of the upcoming Paramount+ series, Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies.
The Today hosts decided to split everyone into two teams, with the TV personalities as opponents, to play a game of trivia about the original movie.
Before they started, Hoda admitted that she was at a disadvantage, which was the only reason she was sharing something she’d never shared before.
“I’m gonna confess something right now that I’ve never said out loud,” the host said.
This got her co-star’s attention, with Jenna begging to know what it was.
Hoda admitted: “I have never seen Grease. I’m sorry!”
Everyone took turns gasping and shouting, “Get out!” and “Oh my gosh!”
Then it was Jenna’s turn to make an opposite admission.
She shared: “I’ll confess something! I’ve seen Grease 244 times.”
GUTHRIE’S GUILTY PLEASURE
While Hoda shared a confession on Monday, she forced Savannah Guthrie into revealing a secret of her own the following day.
On the flagship Today show on Tuesday, the co-hosts all sat on the couch for the POPStart segment.
Carson Daly led it as usual, but this time they were joined by a special guest.
The former boybander hosts the show with his wife, Vanessa Lachey.
After they talked to Nick a bit more, Hoda spilled one of Savannah’s secrets to him.
“You should know that on this couch that there is one person who is especially crazy about this show,” she said.
Savannah chuckled, put her head down, and raised her hand.
“I confess!” she yelled.
Savannah looked super excited to talk about the live reunion and loved the concept of the show.
“They make an emotional connection. And the series asks, ‘Is love blind?’” she said. “Or does ethical appearance matter?”
After they finished the interview, Savannah told Nick: “I’ll be watching Nick.”
“Yes you will,” her co-hosts shouted.
